God's Word to Women, abridged

Katharine C. Bushnell

An alternate understanding of the role of women in the economy of God from a high view of scripture.

 

Bushnell makes a strong and unique case for women as called to a critically important roll in God's plan of salvation, beginning with his elaboration of the sexes to offer a lifeline to a stumbling Adam, through the fall of mankind and the promise to Eve of woman's exalted place as enemy of satan and forbear of the coming redeemer, through the weary ages as satan used every weapon at his disposal to batter and persecute her and finally to the great promises that have been hinted at throughout scripture, from Isaiah and Jeremiah through to John in Revelation, of the coming age when women will rise up to their high calling and bring to complete fulfillment the rest of the great promise in Eden and satan's head will be finally crushed.

Bushnell is committed to the inerrancy and sufficiency of scripture and her detailed exegesis and intensive studies of the original languages provide a compelling case for the picture she draws from God's word.

I first read Katharine Bushnell's book, found it to be very valuable to proper Bible understanding of God's purpose for women. I was delighted to buy this on Kindle. I have read it several times, a shorter and easier book to share.
I forward this link to interested persons at every opportunity.
Great Book!!!! I would like to contact Kevin and Jessica Hake and help support the book.

Dear Katharine, I love that the role of women ministering for "God from a high view of scripture...called to a critically important role in God's plan of salvation" with the great promises throughout the Bible of women's high calling, as you draw "from God's Word," as your pitch portrays. :) Your table of contents is totally all encompassing what God has to say on the matter of women :) - & it's all for His glory. :) As I read through your book & kept smiling because God uses each one He has chosen for His purpose & His pleasure & that there is neither male nor female, bond or free, in His eyes, but we are His "sons & daughters" II Cor.6:18. :) Most of all, I love your in depth appendix of women. :) I have read & commented on your book & will back it more than 24 hours when space opens on my bookshelf. :) I have also gold ******-rated your book :) - could you please ******* & back my memoirs/testimony books, in return? :) I have been trying for 326 days to be chosen in the top 5 of the editor's desk & am finally #6, so would appreciate your backing to help me. :) Love, Susie :) p.s. every ******-ing moves our books up authonomy's lists, as does backing more than 24 hours & the longer on our bookshelves, the more they move up :)

Katharine,
I love these types of books which delve into the Bible in modern-day English as I've often found the language of the Bible hard to decipher. You've made an excellent commentary here and I've rated your work with six stars.

Katharine,
What a wonderful resource for women you have compiled here. So many people have the wrong idea of the role that women play and have played in the kingdom of God.
Good for you for following God's path for your life and writing such and important piece of work.
Blessings,
Sharon Van Orman
