Product Description

Details

A collection of personal stories by women from many denominations about the struggle for equality by women in the ministry nad those still excluded from it. They tell of steotyping, assumptions, tokenism, discrimination, abuse, isolation, and the 'stained glass ceiling' created by the church's obsession with power, rank and position. This book makes clear the kinds of obstacles in the way of women and gives a glimpse of the faulty theology that underlies opposition to them. It highlights the challenge that women bring to existing church structures and offers hope for a truly all-inclusive, all-affirming and empowering ministry.
