Growing Women Leaders: Nurturing women's leadership in the church, aims to affirm and equip women leaders in their calling to leadership. With insights from both Christians and secular sources, it includes stories of women leaders in scripture, in history and today.
Women's place in leadership is a hot topic around the world. How do we answer the theological questions which are posed about women as leaders in the Church?
This book surveys the latest scholarship on key Scripture passages relating to women leaders, and the long history of women in church leadership. It aims to inspire and nurture women already in leadership and to encourage those exploring a call to this ministry.
It offers practical advice for women on how to grow as a leader, and is also essential reading for men - those who work alongside women church leaders and those involved in the selection and training of women for ministry.
This book is no longer in print, but we would like to encourage you to try and find a second-hand copy.
'An impressive summary of biblical and historical information and an insightful analysis of the issues surrounding women and leadership. Every church leader - and aspiring leader - should read this book.'
Christina Rees, Archbishops' Council.
