Emily Dixon’s aptly named Scandalous is a fresh, honest, and raw look at how we approach women’s issues. From how we dress to love, dating and sex, Dixon covers these topics and more in an unashamed manner. Where women’s ministries fear to tread, Dixon does not. Emily’s writing style is both eloquent and gritty, as she gently brings you to the truth while ripping you from your comfortable place of complacent ignorance. I found myself laughing out loud, nodding my head in agreement, or slapping my forehead when an “ah-ha” moment came about. Don’t mistake this book for a shock and awe book of radical statements – Scandalous is filled with Biblical references. Whenever Dixon imposes her own view points, they are clearly marked as such. There are aspects of this book that can certainly make a person cringe and gasp, “Oh I can’t believe that she went there – and she went there like that!” Part of me wants to caution that if you are a woman who is easily offended by these things, don’t get this book; however, I also want to say that this book is tailor made for women like you.
I give it full stars for the fresh message and beautiful writing.
