Review: Jesus Feminist: An Invitation to Revisit the Bible’s View of Women

Jesus Feminist: An Invitation to Revisit the Bible's View of Women
Jesus Feminist: An Invitation to Revisit the Bible’s View of Women by Sarah Bessey
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

When the subtitle said “an invitation,” I didn’t realize it’d be all self-directed. I kept waiting to read something about feminism or what Jesus said that would show me “the Bible’s view of women,” but I was left wanting. But then again, it wasn’t written for me (it was frequently insinuated that boys aren’t welcome, which seems odd, given the title), so maybe I just missed it. Overall, it’s mostly a failure of marketing, setting expectations the book has no intention of delivering on.
