Is the church helping woman and children and supporting them when they experience violence?  Are we as a society doing enough to protect women and girls?

The Liberating Truth shows through stories told to the author how women have still not been liberated and Jesus would want them to be.  Reading this book will show you how the Bible has been misinterpreted, how much time Jesus spent and said about women, and how society can help women.

Excerpt from the book!

About the Author- Danielle Strickland and her husband are officers in The Salvation Army in Canada.  They have two young children.





My thoughts-

I thought this book gave a tall order to fill, to change how women and girls are treated around the world.

I did agree with Danielle Strickland that politics, denominations, and hearts need to be changed about the way women are treated, but I don’t share her more liberal views of marriage, like that the person who knows more about the subject should make the final decision. 

In a marriage I believe that the husband should always have the final say if an agreement can’t be made.  I also believe that once there are children in a marriage, the wife needs to stay home while the kids are young, to give them the best start in life.  Today the wife can always have a job on the internet if the family needs money.

I would recommend this book to all who want to learn what Jesus thought about women and girls and how we should treat them as Christians.
