Good News For Me

As you all know I write books. Writing for me is the easy part. Getting them published is a little bit tougher. It takes a lot of rejections before you finally make it to being in Wal-Mart. With more people buying books online, this makes selling books even more of a challenge. I don't know what a person would have to be looking for on to find my book and purchase it, but it's there waiting for someone to love it.

Anyway, I was contacted last week by Strategic Book Publishing company (Tanya in acquisitions)who requested my manuscript for "When Will Eve Be Forgiven?" I was happy to receive a request from a publishing company. It is not unusual for a writer to be rejected hundreds of times and one author said after his tenth book, he finally got published. Some people make it and some people don't. Please take a moment to wish me luck and to offer up a prayer. I will greatly appreciate it. Below is the letter I send to publishing companies to get them to bite.

“4 things a woman should know: How to look like a girl, how to act like a lady, how to think like a man, and how to work like a dog (Anonymous).” “Women are a necessary evil, a natural temptation, a desirable calamity, a domestic peril, a deadly fascination and painted ills (Chrysostom).” “[Women] are the gateway to Hell (Tertullian).” “Women do not have a soul and do not belong to the human race, as shown by many passages of Holy Scripture (Valentius Acidalius).” “…I do not allow [women] to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says (Apostle Paul).” These are quotes that Christian history and society have made about women, but history is about to change!

Are you a frustrated Christian woman? Have you come to the conclusion that the apostle Paul is a male chauvinist? Are you concerned about the message Christianity is offering teenage girls about womanhood? Or, are you a male trying to understand women? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this book is for you.

When Will Eve Be Forgiven is a nonfiction book that examines and defines the “curse” of Eve and the atoning work of Jesus. This book challenges the reader to go beyond the traditional explanations and characterizations of Eve and her female descendents. Each chapter is easy to follow and fosters growth for the non-Christian and the advanced Christian reader.

When I was a seminary student, I heard the complaints and confusion expressed by many women regarding how society viewed them. In the magazine Christian History, Women in the Early Church, the question is posed whether “special treatment” should be given to women to make up for history’s exclusion of them. Christian historians are bringing to the forefront the contributions women have made to Christian history. A 1991 Gallop survey stated that women control 80% of every dollar spent on consumer goods, 88% of general bookstore shoppers consider themselves as Christians, and 42% of them purchased a Bible or other religious books in the past year (Publishers Weekly).

The response to the title of my book has been: “It’s about time someone addresses how women continue to be associated with Eve’s sin while men are not associated with Adam’s sin.” My book clarifies and defines how God feels about women in Scripture and that women should forgive themselves first and not rely on others to give them freedom and acceptance within the Christian community and the world at large. It is a timely book for all who witnessed the historical presidential race of 2008. I’ve enclosed a SASE if you are interested in seeing the completed manuscript. I look forward to your response.
