Why I recommend "The IVP Women's Bible Commentary" — 7 years ago
In all honesty, I haven’t consumed this whole thing, as it is a commentary on the various books of the Bible and thus is too long to read as you would a novel. It is excellent in giving historical and cultural background and commentary on those thing that are especially relevant to women. Although I tagged it as a feminist theology book, I wouldn’t say that it is that, per se. It is just much more women-friendly than most Bible commentaries. Having been a Christian for over 40 years, I will say that most “Christian” writing is not woman-friendly, which varies greatly from the Master who was the best friend a woman could ever have.
