The Poverty of Patriarchy is a brief look at the spiritual and emotional distortion of relationships through patriarchy, resulting in chaos and abuse in the lives of women. As Christian women, we are Daughters of Abraham with full rights and privileges of family-of-God members, with an inheritance incorruptible as well as unfettered, unhindered access to God Almighty, Creator of all things. Yet, many times in the Christian world, women are treated as less…as though we have less to offer, less value and less access. Women certainly have less influence in the church as the vast majority of evangelical churches don’t “allow” women to serve in leadership capacities. Women in the Christian world are subject to rules and regulations made by men, but not for men. These rules and regulations lead to expectations that are stripping women of their personal relationship with God, putting a barrier between them and Jesus and leading to abuse. Such abuse is rampant in Christian marriages and within the church and other Christian ministries.
In The Poverty of Patriarchy, Tricia Johnson makes observations that reveal many areas where women are truly left in various states of poverty, including spiritual, financial, and emotional poverty. With over 31 years of full-time ministry experience with her husband of 38 years and having raised eight children – five sons and three daughters –all who love the Lord Jesus Christ, Tricia’s insights are a breath of fresh air for women who feel the oppression in their churches and marriages today.
From learning to leave their husbands alone to claiming Jesus without a filter, this ebook is a much-needed encouragement for women, and men, across the world. Jesus is yours….no filters, no hesitation, no doubt. Pursue Him with gusto.
