About the Book

The Genius of Woman shows how women audaciously serve and save humanity, how they demonstrate creative influence and abiding commitment to providing indispensable leadership in families and communities in the banality of everyday family life, but often taken for granted, left unnoticed, and unappreciated. This book is therefore a thankful acknowledgement of the central and unique role women play in families and communities, written on behalf of grateful sons for mothers in particular and for women in general, as a token of appreciation. The book also shows how the Bible portrays women in countless inspiring roles and defining moments, at the centre and in the forefront of humanity’s survival, progress and prosperity. It demonstrates the Bible’s celebration of women’s genius in ways many of us have not fully realized. In The Genius of Woman, we see the Bible’s conception of an ideal woman, far from being an inferior human or an idle, submissive woman as many of our cultures and civilizations have tried to make us believe. The many biblical examples of hardworking, resourceful, intelligent, and courageous women having respectable voices and exerting far-reaching influence on the destiny of their families and of the society, typify the biblical conception of an ideal woman. Thus this book is also for men and all who need to understand the dignity of women, why we should all appreciate and treat them with profound respect.
