Faith and feminism: Excerpt from ‘Talking Taboo’ examines sexual temptation

“Talking Taboo: American Christian Women Get Frank About Faith” is a collection of personal essays from Christian women under 40, including Carol Howard Merritt, a Presbyterian minister, and Amy Julia Becker, a writer and blogger. The women write about “taboo” topics such as domestic violence, religious doubt, homosexuality, menstruation and sexism in the church. Publishers Weekly said the book “offers a glimpse of the diverse lived realities of Christian women and encourages the church to accept the full humanity of women.” Enuma Okoro, one of the editors of “Talking Taboo” and an awarding-winning writer, speaker and communications consultant, wrote this excerpt, from a chapter on the subject of temptation.
