We Need More Domestic Theologians

Contemporary Christianity provides us with a picture of godly womanhood that revolves around a multitude of sweet nothings. I have spent most of my time on earth entrenched in Western church culture and this is the bulk of what I learned about “biblical womanhood” for the first nineteen years of my life: Preserve your virginity.
