Shaping the Future: Girls and Our Destiny

 
Share

Scripture declares that all children are a gift - an inheritance - from God (Psalm 127:3). To reject the girl child, or to ascribe lesser importance to her, denies God’s justice and character and the truth that all children are created in His image.

This book by Dr. Phylis Kilbourn includes a global overview of girl-child issues stemming from gender discrimination and explores the root causes for this disparity. A response to the plight of the girl child commences with a strong theological foundation for shaping our valuing of the girl child. The ensuing strategies discussed aim to help the girl child surmount the barriers that prevent her from reaching her full, God-given potential and also result in physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
