What “Biblical Womanhood” Really Is

What was it like for modern blogger and author Rachel Held Evans to spend a year living the life of a “Biblical woman”? Not as frightening as she had expected it would be, she says. Following the Bible’s instructions for women as literally as possible, Held says, gave her “a more healthy appreciation of the Bible” and its complexity. She hopes her experience will do the same for others, and she has chronicled her experience in her book, A Year of Biblical WomanhoodInterviewer Cherry Crayton asked Evans what she learned from her experiment and prepared a question-and-answer style article that helps explain how Evans, a liberated, modern, Christian woman, spent a year studying women in the Bible, and what she discovered about the Bible and herself. The article is on the website of Faith & Leadership, an offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School.
