What does it mean to be a biblical woman?
Enter Rachel Held Evans, writer, speaker, blogger and trouble maker (I say that with affection). Rachel grew up in a an evangelical home and heard a lot about being a "biblical woman." But she also realized that most of what is thought to be "biblical" is really just cultural expectations that we place on women and had nothing to do with the Bible.
So, she decided to live a year as a "biblical woman." In the spirit of A.J. Jacobs The Year of Living Biblically, Rachel decided to live a life based on what the Bible had to say about women. The result is both humorous and eyeopening. She has written about her experiences in a soon to be released book. In the mean time, here is a short video interview with Rachel. There are more video clips from her year at her blog.
