Liberated is a thoroughly biblical exploration of a difficult subject and brings a heady blend of warmth, humour and brutal candor. … This is an important apologetic that the church needs to read and reflect upon carefully, if we are to convince a watching world that ultimate dignity and flourishing is to be found in following Jesus of Nazareth.
Richard Cunningham, Director of Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF), United Kingdom
Karen shows us again and again that God values men and women equally and gives them both the task of being His image bearers in the world. And Christ Himself, the supreme image of the invisible God, is the one we should look to, because ultimate liberation is found in Him alone.
Carrie Sandom, Director of Women’s Ministry, Proclamation Trust
… shows how the Bible’s message contains better news for women than that coming from any other source. I hope both women and men will read and discover that the living God truly is a friend of women.
Peter Dray, Director of Creative Evangelism, UCCF
I am so grateful for this book. Karen Soole compellingly presents the Bible’s exalted view of women. She also tackles some of those passages in the Bible which many find most challenging. Reading it will fill both women and men with confidence in what it means to be a truly liberated woman in the 21st century.
William Taylor, Minister, St. Helen's Bishopsgate, London
I wish this book had been around when I was first a Christian, wondering whether a fiercely independent, single, domestically–challenged woman like me could thrive in a faith that some claim oppresses women. Essential reading for both women and men.
