As lines are continually blurred by our culture, men and women are losing their sense of identity and purpose, and ideas of what makes men and women different are being both eroded and ridiculed. But while the culture changes, God does not. He has laid down in His Word what it means to be a woman, and what her mission in life is to be. John Angell James, a 19th century Congregational preacher from England, wrote a classic on Christian womanhood under the title Female Piety (also available from Soli Deo Gloria). This booklet is excerpted from that work.
This is just one chapter from John Angell James' excellent book for women, "Female Piety." If my wife and I could recommend only one book for women in understanding their role as God has ordained it in His word, it would be this book, and the booklet, "Woman's Mission" is truly one of the most superb treatises of this subject & should be read by all, both men and women. In fact, my wife has taught on this book at women's retreats!
