"Feminism promises women ""liberation"" from the home to pursue fulfillment in professional careers, but can it deliver? Dorothy Patterson probes crucial questions about the high calling of wives and mothers and considers the priorities women ought to have in light of biblical teaching: Is homemaking my job? Is being a mother a worthy service? Is being a wife a fulfilling vocation? This book confronts questions women are asking and provides meaningful answers from God's Word."

- Publisher Feminism promises women "liberation" from the home to pursue fulfillment in professional careers and public recognition, but can it deliver? ^Often women who have taken salaried jobs and titled positions have found themselves enslaved to the priorities of work and career. As a result many of these women face failures in child rearing and homemaking and find that the dual responsibilities of career and family may crowd out the time for personal creativity. ^Dorothy Patterson urges women to reconsider these priorities and not to forget who they are meant to be. An educated professional woman herself, Patterson probes several crucial questions about the high calling of wives and mothers in light of biblical teaching: Is homemaking a job? Is homemaking a challenging career? Is being a mother a worthy service? Is being a wife a fulfilling vocation? ^This book confronts the questions that the women of our generation are asking and provides straightforward, meaningful answers from God'

- Publisher A mother and professor answers crucial questions for women who find themselves enslaved to their work and careers, who may be asking whether the "liberation" promised by feminism rings hollow. Dorothy Kelley Patterson shows that being a wife and mother is a high calling and a worthy service in itself. She provides insights from God's Word and refutes the idea that fulfillment can come only outside the home--rather, homemaking is as fulfilling a vocation as any job in the marketplace.
