    Strong-willed and independent, Rachel Held Evans couldn’t sew a button on a blouse before she embarked on a radical life experiment - a year of biblical womanhood. Intrigued by the traditionalist resurgence that led many of her friends to abandon their careers to assume traditional gender roles in the home, Evans decides to try it for herself, vowing to take all of the Bible’s instructions for women as literally as possible for a year.

    Karen A. Wrobbel says: "Humorous yet thought-provoking book"
    "LOVE Rachel!"

    What did you love best about A Year of Biblical Womanhood?

    I love this book! I love the humor Rachel uses to describe her year. I love her voice that comes across! This book is a MUST for everyone- especially those who grew up in a staunch religious environment!


    What about Shannon McManus’s performance did you like?

    I have listened to Rachel's "Evolving in Monkeytown" read by herself and it was terrific and humorous! It didn't take long listening to Shannon's performance for me to forget that it wasn't Rachel herself reading. Shannon did an OUTSTANDING job! LOVED it!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes

  • What We Talk About When We Talk About God

    How God is described today strikes many as mean, primitive, backwards, illogical, tribal, and at odds with the frontiers of science. At the same time, many intuitively feel a sense of reverence and awe in the world. Can we find a new way to talk about God? Pastor and New York Times best-selling author Rob Bell shows how traditional ideas have grown stale and dysfunctional and reveals a new path for how to return vitality and vibrancy to how we understand God.

    Would you try another book from Rob Bell and/or Rob Bell?

    I would definitely read another book by Rob Bell! He is one of my favorite authors.


    If you’ve listened to books by Rob Bell before, how does this one compare?

    What We Talk About When We Talk About God was terrific but my FAVORITE still is Love Wins. I think I expected this book to knock me off my feet the way Love Wins did. It didn't. It is is an awesome book. The way Rob Bell writes and speaks is easy to follow, very applicable, and down to earth. He doesn't use extra fluff language that doesn't need to be there.


    What does Rob Bell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice. I love that he reads his own books in his audio versions. This is the third of his that I have listened to and I love hearing him.


    Did What We Talk About When We Talk About God inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me to pay attention to the world around me- that God is in this world around me. He's working and I need to work. I need to be more present because he is.
