My 2017 NaNoWriMo “novel” is a biblical theology of women.
In this book, I intend to take on the tasking of walking through biblical accounts that have women as central and/or significant players as well as passages that address women in both the Old and New Testaments. Through this task I seek to build a picture of how God views women based on what he says about them in his Word. I seek to demonstrate that God’s view of women has been positively counter-cultural throughout all of history in the best way possible. This is not a task I take lightly. At the end of November, whether or not I reach 50,000 words, my work will have just begun. I expect this project to take at least a year, if not longer. I am approaching this topic as a student of the Word. I may have a Master’s degree in theology, but I still have much to learn. I always will. I learned many things as an MA student. The lesson that stood out the most to me is this: the more that I know, the more I realize just how much I do not know. With this in mind, I am approaching this project with the utmost of humility and the most open of hearts to learn. I want to be challenged, shaken, confused, and teachable. What I learn, I will share. My dry land will have a spot for you as well.
