Christianity venerates Mary as the mother of Jesus, but its relationship with Eve is more complicated. In this latest work after Don’t Settle for Safe, Roberts (founder of Woman Evolve Ministries, and daughter of megachurch pastor T. D. Jakes) draws parallels between the lives of modern women and the life of the biblical Eve. In the author’s view, Eve is a woman who must recognize and evolve from the mistakes of the past in order to become the person she is meant to be. This is a particularly important archetype for Roberts, who became pregnant at age 13 and has had to navigate various unexpected life circumstances. Relying heavily on Scripture, each chapter features a “Working It Out” section, with exercises designed to help readers think about how they perceive themselves and whether their thoughts hold them back or propel them forward.
VERDICT Roberts argues that Eve is a role model to be emulated because of her ability to move beyond her past and partner with God to create a hopeful future. Her words will draw in fellow Evangelical Christians who are navigating fear or insecurity.
