More than a Gentle and Quiet Spirit
Paperback. 200 Pages
Christian woman take dominion! Play your position! is a call we may hear a coach yell at a soccer or football game. The meaning is: Do what you have been assigned to do, and do it well! Many Christian women have been told over the years that they must quietly stay under their parasols while their men go out and conquer the world. Is this what the Bible really teaches? Author and pastor, Mark Chanski, insists that the Bible tells us a different story. He insists that the Bible teaches a woman to take dominion of her God-assigned role as wife, mother and church helper. This is not in a feminist way, but in a God-glorifying way that speaks volumes of who she is and why God created her. Women should not think of themselves as victims, says the author, but as victors who conquer the realm that their Lord and Master, Jesus Christ has given them.
Finally–a book that brings together nearly everything God’s Word calls a woman to be–from within herself to her marriage and family, as well as the church and the public square. Chanski’s Womanly Dominion is Biblical Womanhood 101, a biblical, succinct, practical course that shows women how to think God’s thoughts after Him, to align themselves with their holy and awesome calling, and to free themselves from the pressures of worldly thinking about womanhood. Chanski is at times very frank and direct, at other times witty and humorous, and remarkably open and courageous, but he is always biblical and realistic, and knows how to open up the fullness of the woman’s massive calling. If women follow the advice contained in this book, they will be prayerful, joyful, content, fulfilled, and too busy exercising biblical dominion in every sphere of life to join the female murmurers and feminists of the twenty-first century!

This is a fine book that lifts Christian women to their queenly provence–which reigns far above the mythical sovereignties of feminism. Read this book and be liberated! We highly recommend it.
