Has anyone read this book
by Elizabeth & Anna Sofia Botkin? WOW! It is deep & thought-provoking. It will make you examine your beliefs--in a good way.
I bought this book a couple of years ago on the recommendation of several friends. I attempted to read it at that time, but just couldn't get through it. Thinking back on it now, I don't know what made it so difficult. It is not a "hard read", but like I said, it is very thought-provoking. I actually think that maybe my heart was not ready to receive the truth & the challenges contained in the book...
Written by two sisters and begun when they were only 15 and 17, this book is amazing. It's amazing that two young girls can have so much wisdom & discernment at such a young age... It is also written in the spirit of Titus 2 to "younger women". I, obviously, am not younger than them, but I was able to glean much from their writings. I plan to keep this book on our shelf for the future. It will be required reading for AJ & AC when they are 12 or so, sooner if I think they need it. ;-)
If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. If you want to live your life in submission to Christ (& disregard what the world says you should be), this book will definitely challenge you to do it. If you think you are NOT a feminist, read this book! If you are a feminist, read this book anyway!!
And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that the Botkin sisters challenge the reader to read as "Bereans". Acts 17:11 (New International Version)
11Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
