 Book Description:

Did Cinderella live happily ever after? You might think so until you look more closely at the hidden messages in beloved fairy tales. In this book, fairy tales are analyzed in terms of the underlying messages about marriage, agency, power, suffering, and good versus evil, with a focus on how male and female characters differ in each of these areas. The analysis is a data-driven approach that provides clear evidence for the hidden messages in these beloved tales. The end conclusion is not whether fairy tales are good or bad but rather what messages they deliver about life, even if unintentionally.

Confronting Toxic Practices Against the Advancement of Women

 

Christian Living, Women’s Issues

Date Published: November 24, 2020

Without question, having competent women in leadership can certainly enhance the vitality of any organization. Sadly, too often women are not given equal opportunities and are left doubting their sense of self and their abilities.

In Eve, Where Are You?, Dr. Nicole Davis uniquely evaluates bias practices within one specific organization: the Christian church. You’ll learn why many women are discouraged, emotionally absent, leaving churches, or considering giving up religious pursuits altogether. Within these pages, Dr. Davis thoughtfully contemplates the scriptural significance of God’s creation of Eve; compares women’s leadership advances in the marketplace and church; and shares real-life stories and perceptions about women in leadership offered by present-day church leaders.

As a conflict coach and resolutionist, Dr. Davis boldly addresses possible causal effects of toxic practices against women and then offers strategic solutions and guidance to both women and church organizations to facilitate reconciliation, creating opportunity for the church to regain influence and effectiveness in our culture.

Crisp, aggressive, and truthful, this study presents a call to action for women who want more, men who want more for women, and church organizations seeking to embrace internal transformation against gender bias in the Christian church. Also available in Spanish.


About the Author

Dr. Nicole Davis is a wife, mother, pastor, Christian life coach, social science researcher, and conflict resolution practioner, with over 20 years of professional experience. Her areas of research interest include gender inequality, organizational leadership, women empowerment, and family dynamics.

Dr. Davis believes there is a huge distinction between a woman’s calling, which is determined by God, and a church’s doctrine about the utilization of women, which is a cultural decision predominantly determined by men.

Dr. Davis advocates for churches of all denominations to begin having open dialogue about systemic oppression and alienation against women.  Those who show no regard for women’s callings or competency levels. Women need to be developed and commissioned to serve at the highest levels.

Dr. Davis examines the deep-rooted conflict concerning what God intended when He created Eve in the Garden of Eden. She asks poignant questions inviting women to explore how they see themselves based on God’s original plan for them.

The sight of a goose feather at a murder scene modeled after a children’s poem is enough to make FBI special agent Fiona Kelly’s blood turn to ice. Almost two decades ago, a feather was left with her sister’s body—and with every subsequent victim of the Nursery Rhyme Killer. Now he’s back. Only this time, his latest gruesome murder is a message to the only one who ever got away: Fiona. Finding “Rhyme” is an obsession that’s fueled Fiona’s career—and destroyed her marriage to fellow FBI agent Asa Kodiak. Now Fiona and Asa have to put their past tensions aside and work together one last time. But Rhyme is watching, and catching this killer may force Fiona to reveal her biggest, darkest secret…the one only he knows.

EXCERPT

While darkness lurked in the halls of God’s house and hypocrisy abounded, light also shined in
people who were trying to live their faith the best they could. The bad had put such a sour taste in
Fiona’s mouth, but seeing people rally together and to love on her when they didn’t even know
her…that gave her hope. Because it turned out hope wasn’t out of reach for those who had the
courage to reach for it. It was an anchor for the soul.

MY REVIEW

Imagine that you’re a successful attorney who has just lost his dad. Your mother is in very poor health and the last thing she wants to see is her daughter, who vanished without a trace. Even though you don’t trust journalists, you team up with a podcaster who solves crimes. Do you think this is going to be stressful? Yes, but you never thought about falling in love.

Henderson is searching for his long-lost sister in Twin Oaks, Virginia after he sees a newspaper picture of his sister, Helena. He shows the podcaster, Elle, and she is skeptical, but the story could be really big for her business. She and Henderson begin to investigate all through the town, doing everything from hanging up posters to asking questions of everyone.

There seems to be no knowledge of the “compound” that is one of the clues. The deputy sheriff that they meet seems to be sketchy? Is he involved with the crime group? There are so many questions. They get shot at, chased by dogs, and almost get the B & B set on fire as the bad guys try to scare them off.

Will they be able to find the elusive Helena or is she even in this small town? Will their mutual attraction blossom into love or will it just become a terrible distraction from their mission? I think you’ll enjoy this action-filled Christian suspense book. I certainly did.

MY REVIEW

Christian love stories are fun to read and clean, so you know that you’ll not be shocked with scenes that you didn’t expect. The characters in this book all end up facing the fact that they’re not as close to God as they want to be. Juliane and Lukas have met when they were in college, but it was not a good experience.

Lukas had been an alcoholic, just like Juliane’s father. She can’t think past her bad memories, even though he seems to have changed. She’s seen this act before and can’t let herself fall for a guy who will break her heart. The two of them are attracted to one another. The book has each character speak and you can quickly see what they are all about.

Juliane has a life that’s organized just the way she liked, so why did Lukas become a distraction. And why did her sister, Elise come back to live with her? Can Juliane overcome her jealousy of Elise and learn to give people a second chance at living a life that glorifies God?

I really enjoyed this quick read that makes a wonderful example of God’s grace and His plan.
