Yesterday I picked up The Bible Jesus Read by Philip Yancey and started reading where I left off quite a few months ago.
Yancey was extrapolating on the Psalms and then on Proverbs. It was interesting, but something kept nagging at me. There was an uneasiness I felt as I read it.
I love reading books by Philip Yancey. The first I read was Disappointment with God, and I thought he nailed that one. It was such a good book, so I have tremendous respect for him as I have read other of his books.
I didn’t disagree with him. It wasn’t that at all. I kept reading and suddenly it burst upon me what I was feeling.
“Was the Bible written for women to read?”
Women read the Bible, and women love Bible studies by Beth Moore, and others. Women quote Scripture. Women live by faith, and find comfort in the words of the Bible.
But was the Bible written for women to read?
