The lives of twenty-first century women are varied and complex, ranging from seemingly limitless opportunities to grinding poverty and shocking atrocities. In a world that begs the question "Is God good for women?" the church must convey God's good news for all women in a robust and relevant way.
But too often the church's message for women is not big enough to address the opportunities, changes, and contingencies of life in a fallen world. Dominant messages for women in our world today arise from the voices of radical feminism or fundamentalist Islam. God's Word offers an empowering and positive message that mobilizes all women, regardless of age, stage of life, social status, or country, and calls them to join their brothers in a Blessed Alliance to advance God's gracious kingdom on earth.
