God's Design for Women (le dessein de Dieu pour la femme)
Feminism strongly permeates modern society. He encourages women to think that they can "have it all," both a successful professional career and a perfect family development. But a facade of success too often hides a sense of failure, inadequacy and mediocrity - a tyranny of expectations.
Far from reacting with primary negativity, Sharon James shows that every woman has a dignity that comes from being created in the image of God and intended to be a helper. It is therefore by understanding the design of her Creator that she finds the true fulfillment after which her heart longs. Only in this way does she get joy and poise.
In addition, the author presents her perspective on how this divine purpose for women is expressed within the framework of the Church of Christ. So these are pages that provoke self-reflection and examination in the light of the Word of God.
The book also includes a curriculum that can serve as a platform for meetings with women on the subject.
Sharon James writes from her own context, but her study will be of benefit to all believers, wherever they live and whatever their circumstances.
