UPDATE: Monday's appearance on The View has been cancelled/postponed due to weather. Will keep you posted. In the meantime, everyone stay safe!
This week is release week for A Year of Biblical Womanhood, and we’re kicking it off in style with a visit to the ladies at The View!
Dan and I will be talking with Whoopi, Barbara, Sherri, Joy, and Elisabeth on Monday morning at 11 EST. If you want to tweet during the show, use #BiblicalWomanhood.
Release week is an important week for sales, so if you’ve been waiting to buy, this would be the time. Copies should be available at all major retailers by Tuesday, though most already have copies on shelves. My publisher, Thomas Nelson will be announcing a special giveaway for folks who buy this week, so be sure to hold on to those proofs of purchase.
In the acknowledgements section of the book, I write this: “I am grateful beyond words for my readers at rachelheldevans.com, who inspired me to write this book and whose comments, criticisms, stories, and questions made it what it is. Our little online community feels like home to me in so many ways. Your honesty and grace are rare gifts that I hope never to take for granted.”
Thank you once again for your encouragement and support through all the ups and downs of this crazy project.
I hope you enjoy the book. I wrote it for you!
“A bitter-sweet cocktail of wisdom and absurdity that will charm you, entertain you, seduce you and, finally, instruct you! A Year of Biblical Womanhood is funny, droll, charming, and deadly serious, all in one set of covers.”
-Phyllis Tickle, author and lecturer
“A triumph! Rachel Held Evans has written a comprehensive, impeccably researched, heartfelt, whimsical, scripture-honoring book about the role and experience of women in Christian society. This magnificent achievement should be required reading in every church, home, student ministry, college, and seminary in the world. Eshet Chayil!”
-Ian Morgan Cron, author of Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me
"Rachel Held Evans is my kind of woman, Christian, and writer. She cares too much about the Bible to read what it says without wrestling with what it means. Rachel's new book is full of humor, humility, and truth."
-Glennon Doyle Melton, author of Momastery.com
“With curiosity, honesty, and humor, Rachel Held Evans takes readers along on her year-long adventure in Biblical womanhood that manages to be both hilarious and thought-provoking.”
-Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project
"Funny and fearless, Rachel Held Evans is twice the woman I'll ever be."
-Daniel Radosh, writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and author of Rapture Ready!
