Lean in? Recline? How about ‘join the body’

Somewhere between Sheryl Sandberg's call to "lean in" and Rosa Brooks' to "recline" is an offer from the church to "join the body."

Hi there. I just finished reading "Lean In" and I thought it was absolutely fantastic. I feel that all of the criticisms presented in this article are addressed in the book. I understand the knee-jerk reaction, but I see no reasons why Sandberg's position doesn't jive with the Christian woman's life. I would encourage anyone who is skeptical to simply read the book. I'm afraid it is obvious that the author has not read it, as the article is not a response to the book at all, but to its existence.

I'm confused, are you talking about the article above or the article it links to? We actually agree, this article is not a response to "Lean In." It is a response to a recent Washington Post op-ed that, IMO, misreads Sandberg. But that's not my main point, since I felt like Christianity might have something new to add to the conversation.
