despite what your beliefs are, or how literally you want to take the lessons from the Bible (if at all) there is no denying that Daniel Hanson puts forth a well-crafted and engaging narrative re: scriptural interpretation and Christ’s message for the value of women, and the proper behavior they should espouse that is beneficial for everyone – themselves, their families (husbands) and society. It is a thoughtful, well-documented book to read, contemplate, and take away what you will. For me it was interesting hearing his theories and conclusions regarding ‘feminism’ (and the lies) he drew from analyzing Scripture passages further. Never was I bored, and the pacing, formatting and editing was flawless. Overall this was a pleasant, even enlightening reading experience and a book I’d recommend to Christians and Non-Christians alike, so long as they read with an open mind.

wow, what an amazing book! I was completely sucked in from the beginning, and am so impressed with Daniel Hanson’s bravery in challenging the ‘status quo’ and what society keeps pushing on women in such a harmful way. This book is loaded with insightful arguments, and Mr. Hanson has the great ability to pull from Scripture the most applicable passages to really underscore his message. It is clear that he is quite learned in regards to religious and philosophical Study and that he cares about the spiritual wellness of women and girls and the health and sanctity of a family unit. It was very well-written and riveting, but not a ‘fast’ read-- it should be carefully and thoughtfully studied and talked about. So many great discussion points here, I must have highlighted over a dozen passages. Hope to read more from him in the future and recommend to readers of Christian and Spiritual lifestyles/Parenting.

at first I confess to being a bit wary when picking up this book by Daniel Hanson “God’s Feminist Movement” as I was concerned that it might be written with a very specific target audience in mind: those who are strongly Christian, which I admit I am not – although I do have a very strong interest in the Bible and how it teaches people to live and treat others as well as themselves. Since he states his position very clearly right off the bat, I knew exactly what I was getting into, and read with an open heart and mind. Hanson states quite a bold claim, but an admirable one. As I was reading, I found there to be a lot of truth to it and these are things that don’t seem to be talked about in open because it’s “Not PC”…but many do think that the ‘feminist movement’ has done more harm than good, and that God’s view is a much better one than what is currently being pushed my mainstream society. Recommend to readers of Christian nonfiction.

I think it’s safe to say that “God’s Feminist Movement” by Daniel Hanson is written with a specific target audience in mind. However, as I was reading, I found it to be applicable in several aspects of life, and would be beneficial information to just about anyone who was reading it. Yes, it pertains to the ‘Christian’ view of God and a woman’s life in accordance with a relationship with a Christian God according to Scripture. But there are many intelligent and profound observations made and lessons taught that really cross any spiritual boundary. There is much discussion on Biblical elements, but the author brings a fresh, new spin on it with personal insights and anecdotes relating to real-life experiences that we can all relate to. An empowering and positive message all around.

4.5 stars
I suspect “God’s Feminist Movement” won’t be without some controversy, but many readers will happily gobble up this book by Daniel Hanson, as it is a very coherent and impressive interpretation of various Bible passages from several different perspectives…ranging from dating, parenting, sexuality, marriage, and how God really wants women and Men to behave, and how this has been systematically perverted by modern society. I appreciated Mr. Hanson’s coherent and well-thought out statements and arguments, and his evidence from scripture sources and his reasoning. Very relevant and quite astute. He covers so many topics in depth and with a stunning amount of direct research to carefully articulate his findings. Thought there were just so many powerful ideas here, I challenge you to read the whole thing and remain unaffected in some way. Easy to read and understand. I enjoyed reading this and would recommend this to others without hesitation.

I think what I really liked the most about “God’s Feminist Movement” by Daniel Hanson was just the easy and natural, yet passionate tone in which he imparts his message in such a compelling way. There is a lot narrative and it reads as nonfiction most of the time (especially with the Scripture quotes and in-text citations throughout), but there is also a way he writes where it is more like a ‘conversation’ where he is talking to us in a friendly, but wise voice (much like how a pastor or preacher would talk) and explaining ideas in a Godly manner and with real life examples. This helped to prevent any real monotony and speed up the flow. Although I identify as Christian, my Church attendance is pretty much relegated to major holidays, and I haven’t read from the Bible outside of Church since I was a child. But reading this book, and the passages the author questions and dissects, it was so clear how the information can relate to life on an everyday level, even in ways we might not realize. I particularly liked the way he used direct quotes and passages to illustrate his points. A profound, carefully researched book and it answered so many questions I didn’t even know I had! Seemed to be very well edited and put together, and I think this is a valuable book for parents to discuss with their sons and daughters.

"God’s Feminist Movement” by Daniel Hanson was actually far more interesting and deeply insightful than I initially expected it to be (no offense to the author). I just wasn’t sure what I was getting myself in for, but as I started reading I was transfixed by Mr. Hanson’s knowledge of the Bible, scripture, philosophy, and of life in general, and the impact that certain ways of thinking or behavior can do serious harm to a woman, her family, and all of society… There is a lot of information here, research, Scripture and personal narrative, and the way he writes and puts it all together is very moving, eye-opening, and ultimately transformative. “God’s Feminist Movement” is an absolute ‘must read’ for anyone wishing to raise children in God’s vision for them. I feel like Mr. Hanson does a fantastic job of relating his perspectives and information in an easy to digest and very readable manner, and it will definitely open your eyes and change the way you think about what is accepted behaviors, versus what God desires of us. It does discuss sexuality in depth, so probably best suited for mature Christian readers.

In this book, Hanson writes engagingly and fascinatingly, exploring the complexities that exist in our society. With a close focus on the family, a basic social unit; the author explores prudent ways that the society can use to face contemporary issues of moral decadence such as divorce, immorality, and how to relate with members of the opposite sex. The book is a recommended read for parents, educationists, teenagers and those who are courting or in marriage. Hanson explores one of the complex endeavors in human history; being a feminist and a Christian; he interestingly weaves contradicting issues in a precise manner. Indeed; this book is a must read for all, highly recommended!

I have just finished reading this book and I feel like giving a review. Though I don't normally write a review, I have to because I did not expect much but this proved me wrong and turned out to be a very enjoyable read. This book impressed me on more than one front. First, the book went into scriptural original language and the context of some topics that many of us continually struggle with. It was balanced, simple to understand, and clear without any edge of anger which so often comes into play when the term feminist is in play. I strongly recommend.
