“It means growing out her hair, making her own clothes, covering her head, obeying her husband, rising before dawn, abstaining from gossip, remaining silent in church, and even camping out in the front yard during her period.” A statement reads at RachelHeldEvans.com.

Evans‘ second book, ‘A Year of Biblical Womanhood‘, which will be released on Tuesday, October 30, 2012, chronicles her 1-year experience of trying to live biblically, and covers from the Old Testament to the New Testament, from Genesis to Revelation, from the Levitical code to the letters of Paul.

As mentioned by Evans on her blog, this includes camping out in the backyard for the duration of her monthly period (Leviticus 15:19-33), making her own clothes, (Proverbs 31:22), calling her husband Dan ‘master’ (1 Peter 3:5-6), growing out her hair (1 Corinthians 11:15), except for polygamy and a few others.

However, Evans recently told Slate.com that her editor suggested her to remove the word vἁginἁ on her book, which was mentioned twice, noting that it could be a reason for some Christian bookstores not to sell it. But her fans were outraged and one of them made a petition on Amazon.com forum requesting not to remove it.

Later, Ms. Evans said she learned that LifeWay, one of the biggest Christian bookstore chains in the US, vowed not to sell her book its 160 stores in 26 states, noting that someone from LifeWay told her that mentioning that word was not the main issue. She later announced on her blog that it will remain on her book.

“The only thing I know is that my editor said, if you leave this word in, there’s a good chance LifeWay won’t carry it.” Evans told Slate.com, which was published on the site this Tuesday, October 16, adding that she is a devoted Christian and her book is published by Thomas Nelson, a huge Christian book publisher.
