Christianity Today reviews Quivering Daughters
If I ever forget why I wrote When Sparrows Fall, I’ll only need to go back and read Christianity Today’s review of Quivering Daughters by Hillary McFarland.
An excerpt from the review by Gina Dalfonzo: “There seems to be a lack of understanding within the larger Christian community as to the actual nature of patriarchy. Sometimes the patriarchal lifestyle is even romanticized, as people marvel over how well-behaved the children seem and how adorable the girls look in their long dresses. All too often, Quivering Daughters warns, we fail to see the ‘fear-based living’ and endless struggle for perfection behind the scenes.”
The entire review is well worth reading, and so is the book. As “patriarchy” creeps into mainline denominations, we would do well to be well-informed.
