About this deal

Again, such great insight, very thoughtful, and filled so many poignant moments of the women within Scripture that are so often lost to us, both within the church and without. This book not only allows the reader to gaze upon Jesus through some beautiful visio divina but it also allows this gaze to be enhanced by a women's perspective.

We affirm that, as a tool created by humans, AI will be inherently subject to bias and that these biases must be accounted for, minimized, or removed through continual human oversight and discretion. It’s strange that I don’t remember a whole lot of preaching/teaching on the women in scripture, I have to wonder why that is because they have so much to teach us.

In a culture where women were often silenced, Jesus commissions a female disciple to announce his resurrection to his male disciples. Looking through their eyes, we see a man who valued women of all kinds— especially those vilified by others. Rebecca McLaughlin holds a PhD in renaissance literature from Cambridge University and a theology degree from Oak Hill College in London. We affirm that the development of AI is a demonstration of the unique creative abilities of human beings.

As we see Jesus through the eyes of these female disciples, "we see him as the one who welcomes women and defends their right to learn from him.

Jesus Through the Eyes of Women is a model of gender sensitivity without compromising to the spirit of our age.

In six chapters and just under 200 pages, McLaughlin shows aspects of Jesus through those whom you may have overlooked—the many women who interacted with and were personally impacted by Jesus. McLaughlin’s even-handed approach would make the book a viable suggestion even for a secular book club, and questions written by TGC’s Joanna Kimbrel at the end of each chapter make such discussions even easier.McLaughlin has spent plenty of time considering the cynic’s vantage point, with books that include Confronting Christianity: 12 Hard Questions for the World’s Largest Religion in 2020 and The Secular Creed: Engaging 5 Contemporary Claims in 2021. This fascinating and inspiring book closes with a look at how the first eyewitnesses of Jesus’ resurrection were women.
