About this Book

There are many questions that surround Christian womanhood: What does it mean? When does it happen; at a certain age, status, or maturity? How do we know we're no longer girls? And when we've figured that out, how will others know how to recognise us as a "woman" rather than a "girl"? After all, Christian women don't usually get a rite of passage in which they are named a "woman". Seeing this need, Amy Davis Abdallah has created such a rite, and this book accompanies it; there is no need to go through her rite of passage, however, to name yourself a "woman". The Book of Womanhood creates a path through the confusion that surrounds the identity of women by its flexible framework, developing the reader's understanding of a woman's relationship with God, their self, others and creation. Amy writes simply as one perhaps further along in her journey of womanhood than most, and she doesn't write alone; she includes the stories of Biblical women, of friends young and old, and even more. The diverse voices come together as a cloud of witnesses encouraging us in our individual journeys.

The Book of Womanhood is about recognition, reaching out not only to women, but also to men who seek to understand and empower their wives, daughters, and friends to be the women God has formed them to be. Read for empowerment; read for transformation. Read and become the woman of God you were created to be.

Reviews and Comments

"Amy has artfully constructed this rite of passage for women in order to help women understand and embrace what it means to be a woman and to celebrate the beautiful and delicate complexities that make us uniquely feminine. The Book of Womanhood is an outstanding resource for families, churches, and colleges."
Wanda Walborn, Director of Spiritual Formation, Nyack College

"Expecting to be married with children in her twenties, life unfolded in unanticipated ways for Amy Davis Abdallah. These became opportunities to journey with God toward self-discovery and empowerment. This book builds wholeness in all its relationships. For these reasons, The Book of Womanhood is hard to put down!"
Mimi Haddad, President of Christians for Biblical Equality
