Kathryn Joyce's fascinating introduction to the world of the patriarchy movement and Quiverfull families examines the twenty-first-century women and men who proclaim self-sacrifice and submission as model virtues of womanhood--and as modes of warfare on behalf of Christ. Here, women live within stringently enforced doctrines of wifely submission and male headship, and live by the Quiverfull philosophy of letting God give them as many children as possible so as to win the religion and culture wars through demographic means.

An interesting look at a radical and controversial movement.

Most familiar from TV family "The Duggars", the Christian patriarchy movement is concerned with "biblically" defined roles for husbands, wives, and children in the family, and the strategy of outnumbering non-Christians in the American population by outbreeding them with extreme patriarchal children. A vivid picture of the movement, and a spur to further research for any secular, feminist, Christian or other reader who considers personal or religious freedom important.
