The writer of this research paper became interested in the development of Christian womanhood through encounters with teenage girls when working as a sponsor of a church youth group. In a regular meeting the girls were separated from the fellows as a 'lib night' was held and what it means to be a girl was discussed. The girls were eager to know more about what makes them women, how it affects their interpersonal relationships and what difference it makes to be a Christian. As a result the writer became more aware of the wealth of material on today's market written for the Christian woman. This paper provided an opportunity to review some of this literature. Women today are experiencing new freedoms and traditional roles are being challenged. What are the Christian writers saying about this? How is it affecting the Christian woman and as a result the Christian community?
