In ‘Selfies with Bible Girls’, Laju Iren has produced a formidable tool for examining our thoughts, desires and actions. Using a mirror of people from the bible, we see many of our own challenges laid-bare before us. By seeing how they tackled their problems, we have a reflective surface upon which to examine our own responses to life’s daily battles
Some thousands of years may have elapsed, but the problems largely remain the same: breaking out from the status quo, infertility, moving on from a shameful past, shattering the glass ceiling, women’s rights and even that seemingly dreaded F word: Feminism.
Using modern day terminology influenced by technology, ‘Selfies’ is an accessible guide for today’s generation of tech-savvy Christians.

[20/08 13:23] Laju Iren: You will fall in love with Selfies with Bible Girls. And you don’t have to be a girl, to do so. Written in the language, nuances and sensitivities of this per second technological age, it marries a sweet to read writing style, with fresh insights of the Bible.
It is a novel. It is a sermon. But more than these, you will see yourself cast in the roles of the harlot, the widow, the judge, a single woman, a wife, a widow, a divorcee, a barren mother of nations and so on. You are invited to be the actress, the audience and the critic: the firmly rooted believer, a faithful daughter of Zion. Enmesh yourself. A new you will emerge.
