  Why Is Feminism So Hard To Resist?

Why Is Feminism So Hard to Resist?Feminism is pervasive and insidious. While in former times its lure incited a reactive army of angry warriors to take their bras to the nearest fires, now feminism's charms are aided by Madison Avenue. Her seductions are slicker, glitzed with fashionable bangles, accompanied by catchy jingles and well-crafted human bodies and the images of the perfect life. For the average child born in America today, catechesis in feminism begins in utero by what can be heard through the influences of a media-controlled life. Feminism is not for women only; it is a state of being for both sexes.

To understand how this is so Paul R. Harris has written Why Is Feminism So Hard To Resist? Both theological and historical, Harris's book is written to and for men and women. Feminism is not a condition that affects or is effected by one sex alone. Harris’ book is excellent in demonstrating how this is true. He neither blames either sex for it cause, nor does he consider either one to be the means for a return to a more pristine age.

Why Is Feminism So Hard To Resist? is written accessibly. That is, it could be used for Bible Study groups as young as high school, as well as adults. It is also excellent for personal study at home. Harris writes with depth, clarity and insight. He is balanced, so men and women alike need not fear they will be “targeted” as either victim or antagonist in an ongoing war between the sexes.

Why Is Feminism So Hard To Resist? is a valuable tool that will find itself passed around to many readers, and referred to often.

No-one ever burnt their bras. This is a myth. Check your facts.
Yes they did; check your brain.
