Women and a Spirituality of the Body
Author: Lilian Calles Barger
Publisher: Baker Books
Botox. Plastic surgery. Make-up. Women sometimes go to desperate lengths to distort, mold, and fashion their bodies into that of the "ideal" woman. They live with the reality of the body, from its reproductive implications to the pressures from the media to look a certain way. They are intimately connected to their bodies, but often find it difficult to link their experience of the female body with their desire for Christian spirituality. Lillian Barger presents Eve's Revenge to help women see how their understanding of their bodies impacts spirituality. Not a self-help book, it describes the tension women experience between their bodies and their desire for a spiritual life. Barger suggests the possibility of viewing women as unified, not split, between body and soul. This model, offered through the life and work of Jesus Christ, provides insight into how Christian women ought to live in the world and in their own skin. Christian women struggling with a body/soul tension and those interested in the social and spiritual meaning of the female body will find this engaging book enlightening and helpful.

Empowering Women to Teach the Scriptures Effectively
Author: Jackie Roese
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
Conservative evangelical women are least likely to be trained in the areas of teaching and preaching. It's a tragic state of affairs, given the central value that our tradition places on the Scriptures. In this book, Jackie Roese examines the forces, both past and present, that have discouraged women from becoming trained. We'll discover that women are indeed called, gifted, and mandated in Scripture to herald the Word of God. The first half of the book will focus on encouraging women to become as fully equipped as our male counterparts, and to use their uniquely female voice in proclaiming truth to other women in various settings outside pulpit preaching. But encouragement isn't enough. Many women who already teach Bible studies, or who desire to teach, are in no position to pursue formal studies in a seminary. To that end, the second half of She Can Teach is dedicated to developing homiletic skills. Together we will learn how to study a passage, find the main idea, and build and deliver a biblical message. By the end of this book, the reader will be better equipped to proclaim truth, through her uniquely female voice, to her female audience.

Kennen Sie Eve Babitz? Journalistin, Partygirl, Künstlerin, Muse: Bis zu ihrem dreißigsten Lebensjahr hatte Eve Babitz bereits jede dieser Rollen inne. Schon als Kind war sie Teil der kulturellen Bohème Kaliforniens. Zu erster Berühmtheit gelangte sie als nackte Schönheit am Schachtisch mit Marcel Duchamps und als eine von Ed Ruschas Five 1965 Girlfriends. Doch ihr erstes Buch zeigt Babitz als Schriftstellerin mit eigener Stimme und eigenen Geschichten. So erzählt sie von entzückenden Highschool-Schönheiten, beneidenswert tätowierten Chicanas und Rockstars, die ihren Rausch im Chateau Marmont ausschlafen. In ihren scheinbar beiläufigen Anekdoten verdichten sich Glamour, Witz und Tragik auf einzigartige Weise. Hier lernen wir die wahre Schönheit von Los Angeles kennen: Zitrusbäume wiegen sich im Wind, immer bis zum nächsten Erdbeben.
