It’s strange, but it seems rare to find women who are really into theology. Not that there aren’t, mind you; but it seems like women tend to gravitate toward (or at least have titles marketed to them) books that are more “feelingsy” in nature. Books that can be good, but aren’t always intellectually challenging or satisfying. So why is this, and why should women read more theology? Jen Wilkin joins me to discuss this and more on today’s episode of Reading Writers.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- Why women tend to avoid reading theology;
- Are women necessarily stifled by certain views on church leadership;
- The difference between writers and bloggers; and
- How hipsters who love leather working can make me a better copy of Great Expectations
