The Gospel Centered Woman
understanding biblical womanhood through the lens of the gospel
Join us as we begin our second Wendy Alsup series. So many women at Refuge were compelled and challenged by the words Wendy shared in her study through Ephesians By His Wounds You are Healed that we decided to spend more time under her teaching. The following summary, taken from the book's Amazon page, provides you with a good idea of what to expect.
Many Christian books written to women claim to present God's good instructions for their lives. Some expound on the value of marriage and children. Many extol the virtues of the Proverbs 31 wife. A good number teach the value of love, submission, and respect in Christian marriages. Though this book deals with these topics, The Gospel-Centered Woman addresses women from an entirely different perspective. The most important part of the Bible's instructions to women center around the gospel. Jesus' life, death, and resurrection brought about a seismic shift in our understanding of Scripture. After His resurrection, His disciples understood words written thousands of years before with a clarity they never had previously. The good news of Christ illuminates all other Scripture, including instructions to women.
The series begins Monday, June 12 and runs through the summer to Monday, September 18. We will be meeting at Refuge.
