Commendations

Kathleen Nielson proficiently unpacks difficult passages of Scripture that we sometimes want to avoid. On every page, she helps us wrestle with complex questions, while inviting us to embrace this beautiful truth: God is good to women. This is an excellent and needed book—I highly recommend it for both men and women.

Melissa Kruger

Author of The Envy of Eve and Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood

At a time when there is increasing confusion and perhaps resistance to God’s word about gender, Kathleen offers a clear and wise path to understanding God’s word rightly in this important area. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is a book just for women. This is an excellent resource for men as well, as we all grapple with the Bible’s teaching on what it means to be a woman.

Kara Hartley

Archdeacon for Women’s Ministry, Diocese of Sydney, Australia

I loved this book! Women and God is more than just an overview of the roles of women in the family and the church. It tackles all the usual texts as well as the more shocking and perplexing ones that other people sometimes avoid. Kathleen anticipates all the questions and objections that people have, and then answers them from the text with wisdom, clarity, and sensitivity. What makes this book so compelling is her conviction that God is good, and that women can have confidence that living by his word is a beautiful thing and for our good.
