Robert Lewis, Jeremy Royal Howard
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
“I never thought a book written by a man could give me such an eye-opening picture of who I should be as a woman.”
—Shaunti Feldhahn, bestselling author of For Women Only
“Women today have unprecedented opportunities and possibilities before them, but this great new freedom also brings a new dilemma: how to make the best choices for their own good and that of their families. In The New Eve, Robert Lewis gives women of all ages a picture of what God intended for us from the beginning and a clear vision for how we make choices that liberate us to live with purposeful direction. No matter your stage in life, all women can benefit from his coaching. I highly recommend it.” ??
— Barbara Rainey, co-founder of FamilyLife
“Robert Lewis sounds a much-needed message as he calls women to walk in the feminine freedom and fullness that result from embracing our core biblical callings. The New Eve dispels the current cultural fog regarding what it means to be a woman, by looking to God's design as revealed in the Scripture, for wisdom, insight, and direction."

Sounds like the dream life of some hard-shelled feminist, right? Only in my case, it's not. The truth is, I never set out to walk this kind of path. Not intentionally, anyway. When I graduated from college in the mid ’70s, all I ever heard from the women I admired was that it was up to me to make my own way. Don't get stuck waiting for a man to
I made VP in my company and was one of the best in my field. But then I realized I was breaking into my forties and was still single.
