|DATING JESUS: A Story of Fundamentalism, Feminism, and the American Girl|
Campbell’s wry wit and ability to break down Scripture crown her the Sarah Vowell of feminist theology.
As a young girl, author Susan Campbell was in love with Jesus. She would memorize quotes he’d said, sing songs giving him praise, and even go to his house multiple times a week to hear his greatest hits. She wanted to know everything about him, until she began to come into her own gender consciousness. Dating Jesus is both a coming-of-age story about the mixed messages Campbell received growing up as an evangelical Christian in America’s Bible Belt and an investigation into her childhood suspicion that, as a female, giving your heart to Jesus meant taking a back seat in his Astrovan to Heaven. Campbell’s wry wit and ability to break down Scripture crown her the Sarah Vowell of feminist theology. A must-read for anyone who’s wrestled with coming to terms with women’s social roles in her own faith.
