PRAISE FOR REDEEMING THE FEMININE SOUL
“At my age, it’s not often I read something—especially about women’s issues—that teaches me something new. But I was amazed by Julie’s book.”
- Kay Arthur, Bible teacher and co-CEO of Precept Ministries International
"Julie Roys has done it, a tremendously well-crafted book on an essential topic. The nature of gender and sex difference as it has been understood throughout recorded history is suddenly under attack today, and Julie parses out the truth on the feminine side of the debate with incredible wisdom, graciousness and insight. Every woman—especially 20-somethings—should read this book."
- Glenn T. Stanton, Director of Family Formation Studies at Focus on the Family and author of Secure Daughters/Confident Sons and Loving My (LGBT) Neighbor: Being Friends in Grace and Truth.
"In our present age of gender confusion—or even willful disregard of plain facts—Julie Roys’s book cuts through the cultural fog with the brilliant beacon of God’s Word. Though Roys is deeply theological at all the right points, she writes not as an ivory tower academic but a theologian from the front lines of life. With rare insight and courageous honesty, she tells her own story as a way of exploring what it means to be a woman according to inerrant Scripture. Roys’s book eloquently reminds us of the timeless beauty that the Creator imparted to the feminine soul."
- Bryan Litfin, professor of theology, Moody Bible Institute
"I've known Julie for nearly thirty years and have witnessed her consistent passion to reach others with the truth presented in Scripture. In Redeeming the Feminine Soul, she makes a powerful case for womanhood to a culture that's in danger of erasing gender distinctions. I hope many will consider her arguments and take them to heart."
- Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Christ
"I love this book! It's raw, courageous, smart, and biblical -- a tremendous resource for every woman striving to honor God in her femininity. I could see Julie grow with each chapter, and she has inspired me to grow too. You can't possibly read this book without being challenged."
- Dr. Juli Slattery, Co-founder of Authentic Intimacy

In Redeeming the Feminine Soul: God’s Surprising Vision for Womanhood, popular national radio host Julie Roys reveals the stunning truth that no one else is talking about: women are destroying themselves. Internalizing society’s devaluation of the feminine, some women are killing their own natural impulses to pursue a feminist ideal that bears no relation to God’s good design. Other women struggle to conform to a fundamentalist, feminine caricature, which requires denying their full humanity and gifting.
Defying both feminists and fundamentalists, Julie Roys reveals God’s true, affirming, and compelling vision for women, showing them how to reclaim what is uniquely feminine, and become healthy, balanced women of God.
