"Women young or old, married or single, will be instructed an inspired by this book."
- C. J. and Carolyn Mahaney
Biblical womanhood is not for the weak. In an age that seeks to obliterate God and His authority, modeling biblical womanhood involves spiritual warfare. Radical Womanhood seeks to equip new believers and long-time Christians alike, exposing the anti-God agenda of the three waves of feminism to date and presenting the pro-woman truth of the Scriptures. Illustrated with numerous personal testimonies, this book will dig deep into the Word and show how it can be lived out today. The foundation and core message of Radical Womanhood is consistent with the traditional complementarian teaching on biblical womanhood. However, the target audience, tone, and style are radically different. Most books on this subject take a heavily didactic tone that assumes an awareness of Christian lingo and a high degree of spiritual maturity. Radical Womanhood has the narrative approach appreciated by postmodern readers, but still incorporates solid, biblically-based teaching for personal application and growth.

"Here is a helpful, biblical, straightforward, engaging and compelling book that sets out a biblical vision for womanhood. I am so thankful that my friend Carolyn McCulley has written it. She represents the scores of godly, young, Christian women who are thoughtfully rejecting the world's notion of the "New Woman" and who are, instead, joyfully embracing the Scripture's teaching on the "True Woman." Carolyn was once deeply influenced by feminist thinking, but came to see the bankruptcy of that worldview. She wants your to understand why much of what women learn about what it means to be a woman in today's culture (whether it is taught in college, read or heard via the media, or assumed in society) leads to a dead end. More important she wants you to know why the Bible's view of womanhood inspires joy and peace.

With courage, clarity, history and stories that stick, Carolyn delicately dismantles the shrines of feminism wih the glories of biblical femininity. Ladies, grab a coffee, a corner and listen to Carolyn talk about how God's Word transforms women

"As a young woman, Carolyn McCulley eagerly embraced many of the tenets of our 'feminist world.' A personal encounter with Christ radically changed her life and led her to pursue what it mast to live as a redeemed woman. This book is the fruit of her journey."
- Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Host, Revive Our Hearts radio program
"Like an intravenous drug coursing through the vein of an unconscious patient, feminist thought has thoroughly permeated our culture. In this insightful, engaging, and relevant book, Carolyn McCulley encourages us to wake up and become radical —to live as biblically savvy women in the modern world. It's and excellent read and a stirring challenge!"
- Mary A. Kassian, author of The Feminist Mistake
