Editorial Reviews


This book has emerged as an inspirational, 'must read' call to action. Through a tapestry of personal experience, theology, history, and statistics reflecting hope and challenge, Pastor Wolfe compassionately captures and relates the sacred journey of American Baptist Women in Pastoral Ministry. --Rev. Valentine B. Royal-Thomas, ABC/USA, American Baptist Women in Ministry

Clear, concise, educational, this book is a must read for pastoral search committees, judicatory officials, and pastors of both genders. It would be valuable for small group study and reference. --Rev. Dr. Cheryl R. Henson, American Baptist Churches of the Great Rivers Region

By listening deeply to women pastors of his own American Baptist tradition and carefully presenting their responses, author James Wolfe offers useful guidance for his own church and for many others. As he identifies the unique gifts women bring to ministry, Wolfe calls the church to move beyond patronizing acceptance of women's leadership and to support them in just and equitable ways. --Dr. Marlene Kropf, Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary
