The Accidental Feminist :  Restoring Our Delight in God's Good Design

Author: Courtney Reissig 

Many Christian women wouldn’t identify themselves as “feminists.” However, according to Courtney Reissig, we’ve all been influenced by the feminist movement in profound ways, unconsciously reflecting our culture’s notions about what it means to be a woman. Helping readers navigate a wise path in the midst of a confused world, this book chronicles the journey of a wife, mom, and successful writer as she recounts her journey from “accidental feminism” to a biblical view of womanhood. Filled with wise insights related to relationships, body image, and women’s roles in the home and the church, this thought-provoking book will help Christian women carefully consider these important issues.

“Courtney Reissig is a true daughter of Sarah. She is wise, discerning, brave, and thoughtful. This book is a needed antidote to the false views of women we so often encounter, and too often absorb, in our culture.”
Russell D. Moore, President, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission; author, Tempted and Tried

The Accidental Feminist reminds me of a handbook on womanhood, but not a rule book. Courtney shares the beautiful design of all aspects of women made in the image of God. A perfect read for anyone desiring to gain an understanding of womanhood in the Bible.”
Trillia Newbell, author, United: Captured by God’s Vision for Diversity and Fear and Faith

“Courtney writes as a daughter of third-wave feminism who is calling her sisters to return to God’s instructions for how we should live as Christian women in a fallen world. This book unveils what has been lost in our hearts, our relationships, and our churches. It exposes the “options” feminism offers as just a set of heavy shackles designed to hold us back from seeking fulfillment in the only place it can really be found—in the hope of the gospel of Christ.”
Kristie Anyabwilewife of Thabiti Anyabwile, Assistant Pastor for Church Planting, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC; mom of three; discipler of women

“Over the past few decades, we’ve unwittingly absorbed popular ideas about womanhood. We’ve become feminists without knowing it. Courtney challenges us to wake from the stupor. If you’re a young woman, you would do well to read this book and consider whether you, too, have become an accidental feminist.”
Mary A. Kassian, Professor of Women's Studies, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild

“Courtney Reissig has written what is sure to become the standard guide to Christian womanhood in a feminist age. Her book is practical, winsome, and full of rich theology. It is particularly strong—and unusual—because the content rests alongside a powerful narrative of personal transformation. Like the Savior it extols, this is a book that is going to strengthen, unsettle, and ultimately bless many readers—and there is nothing accidental about that.”
Owen Strachan, Assistant Professor of Christian Theology and Church History, Boyce College; President, The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

“Thoughtful and authentic, Courtney Reissig masterfully uncovers the struggles women have in discovering their identity and purpose. She presents a thorough picture of feminism and the confusion it has wrought regarding the roles of women today and the definition of “equality.” She reveals the true liberation women can experience as they embrace a biblical view of womanhood. Regardless of age or background, The Accidental Feminist is a book every woman should read!”
Monica Rose BrennanAssociate Professor and Director of Women’s Ministries, Liberty University

“Being female isn’t just a category; it’s a good gift written in our DNA by a Creator who loves us and is for us. Courtney Reissig affirms this truth from Scripture as well as her own story. Her journey from resisting her design to embracing it with joy is a faithful guide for young Christian women wondering what to make of being female. In a day when male and female are seen as too confining, when it is said that gender is best bent to the whims of our personal expression, Reissig faithfully shows why being made female, in the image of God, is an exceedingly good gift.”
