Is it just me, or is it fair to say that women are interested in more than the aw- shucks- I-burned-the-pot-roast-but-God-still-loves-me kind of Christian memoir?
Why do women feel compelled to write so often about the cheerios stuck to their feet and less often about the intricate mysteries of faith and scripture. I get how humility draws us closer to Christ, and maybe relinquishing the pursuit of perfection is a start in that direction- but I think it's also ok, and important to encourage young women to think outside the kitchen, or play room, or laundry room, or whatever.
I think it's beautiful when we find God in the small stuff. But in matters of faith- it is NOT a case of "Everything I need to know I learned in Kindergarden" or Sunday School for that matter.
We should embrace the mystery. We should dig deeper, think harder, ask more questions of ourselves and our leaders- or the authors that we read. Because just like songwriters, or worship songwriters, Christian authors are our theologians. Whether we like it or not.
Are there any female theologians out there I should be reading?
I love Sara Sumner and her book changed my life, but what else am I missing?
