Who Are You? Many Christian women rarely, if ever, ask themselves that question. But knowing who you are as a woman-and as a Christian-can make a real difference in how you see yourself and others. Elisabeth Elliot can help you find answers that make a difference. She suggests that the place to start is by asking not "Who am I?" but "Whose am I?" In Let Me Be a Woman, she writes candidly about what it means to be a Christian woman, and she unabashedly tackles tough issues, including: Subordination The Single Life Self-Discipline Masculinity vs. Femininity The Right Kind of Pride What Makes a Marriage Work Whether you are young or not so young, single, engaged, married, or widowed, you will better understand how you fit into God's plan, and you will come away with a wonderful sense of peace about who you really are as a Christian woman.
