    1. "No Will of My Own" is a disturbing look into some of the Patriarchy movement's darkest rooms. Zens breaks down for the reader two studies of strongly patriarchal groups and draws the curtains back to light upon the incest, physical abuse, and emotional torture leveled upon innocent women (including one frightening internment camp in Indiana used for the coercion and reprogramming women who have begun to question male authority or seek higher education — the "Hephzibah House").A brief book in [...]

    2. This very short but very disturbing book pulls a lot of material from other sources and doesn't have a tremendous amount of original material written by the author. But it was an excellent book, documenting the harm that Christian patriarchy movements do to women. It only took me about an hour to read, but it raised a lot of disturbing questions about certain types of Christianity and their harm to women

    3. In almost every religion around the world, the hearts, souls, and bodies of women are sacrificed on the altar of fundamentalism. In "No Will of My Own," Jon Zens takes a sobering look at abuse within patriarchal Christianity. An important book. -- Hillary McFarland
