Description - Resurrecting Eve by Roberta Mary Pughe
This insider's sincere critique of fundamentalist lies about women. It directly addresses the Christian leaders James Dobson ("Focus on Family"), Rick Warren ("Purpose Driven Life"), Tim LaHaye ("Left Behind" series) and D James Kennedy ("Coral Ridge Ministries"). Daring and original, the authors energetically decriminalise eve, re-framing her as a modern-day mythic mentor. This title features the following: eve's bold, self-directed, inquisitive nature as a model for oppressed women; the effects of ignoring the feminine on the current political and religious climate; how negative messages of the fundamentalist good woman role affect women's authenticity; the characteristics and inherent commandments of fundamentalist beliefs and the culture that supports them; and, new ways to understand the resurrection by finding eve's spirit in Jesus' teachings.It provides compelling case stories of women who have broken free of fundamentalism. Their intention is to support women in reclaiming their bodies, standing up, and waking up to their fullness and beauty as gifted and powerful shapers of their lives, their relationships, and society.
