I doubt whether this book is a biblically faithful and therefore helpful book for pastors. I’d be more inclined to recommend it to a friend in business than to a pastor.
Hunter’s book is immediately relevant—and a corrective in many ways—to the current conversation going on among evangelicals
We need to ask “What is the mission of the local church?” not merely “What is the mission of the individual Christian?”
In many ways, this book is the most helpful, balanced contribution to the evangelical conversation about Christianity and culture that I’ve yet read.
Some people on the transformationalist side of the spectrum should read this to have their theology corrected. For myself, I needed a heart correction.

I found this book so helpful that I’m asking all of our elders and pastoral interns to read it.
In 200 crisp, scripturally saturated pages, Chanski charts an engaging course for Christian womanhood in a feminist age.
This book has helped me understand feminism and respond to it biblically. As a result, it has spurred my growth in biblical womanhood, which truly is a radical way to live.
