Fashioned to Reign

Fashioned to Reign
Empowering Women to Fulfill Their Divine Destiny
Kris Vallotton

Women have been powerful and prominent throughout history. But the author believes that we are still being repressed and misrepresented in today's world, especially in the church. His focus seems to be on showing how women can be great and be groomed to "reign".

The idea for the book is great. So I was excited to see how the author put these ideas on paper. Almost from the very beginning I was turned off. The presentation just wasn't working for me. There were quite a few things initially that I didn't agree with either. The author seems to use scripture very loosely and, I felt, often incorrectly. He kept urging the reader to stay with him and finish the book.  I finished the book. I was left with very mixed feelings. The idea was great. The history was great. The battering ram approach just turned me off. While I enjoyed parts of this book, I honestly can't say that I would recommend it to someone wanting to read about this issue.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
