Reclaiming Eve: Why We Need to Stop Blaming Her for Everything
I enjoy talking with other writers and authors so much, and I love encouraging people to use their gifts. So when Beacon Hill Press asked if I’d be willing to facilitate a conversation with the authors of the new book, Reclaiming Eve: The Identity and Calling of Women in the Kingdom of God, I jumped at the chance.
Two of the three authors were available, so I met with Jamie Wright and Suzanne Burden on Google Hangout last Friday on our lunch hour for a live on-air chat. Isn’t technology cool??? Plus, the entire 45 minute conversation is now available on Youtube for everyone who wasn’t able to watch that day.
The heart and passion Jamie and Suzanne have for women and for the kind of partnership they see God calling us to in the Bible is so hopeful and encouraging. I’m still reading the book, so I will post more about it later, but it is such a positive message for both men and women. At its core, the book examines the story of Eve in Genesis, exposes all the ways we’ve read her story wrong, and encourages us to embrace the real Eve and the calling God gave her and every woman since. This calling is independent of our life circumstances, it’s for any woman, whether single, married or widowed, whether a mother or not, whether stay-at-home, work-at-home, or work-away. Tune in below!
