Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jo Saxton is a leader, visionary, practitioner and voice that leaders need to hear. This book is an essential resource for anyone serious about investing in the emerging generation of women leaders." (Brad Lomenick, director, Catalyst)

"Saxton has changed the conversation. She has catapulted us beyond the same tired debates, the old unanswerable questions and past paradigms to an unmistakable call to action. Women can no longer sit idly on the sidelines or argumentatively in the halls of debate but must step into their unique calling and work in the kingdom. This book is important for all women who influence--from the family to the marketplace to the church. It is also an important read for the men who lead them and are led by them." (Heather Zempel, pastor of discipleship, National Community Church, Washington, D.C.)

"In the tradition of Carolyn Custis James, Jo Saxton encourages women to live beyond cultural assumptions and churchy expectations and to live fully into our calling. More Than Enchanting is a must-read for women--whether they are secure in their callings or just finding their feet." (Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeneira, author of Grumble Hallelujah and cofounder of Redbud Writers Guild)

"Every woman is a queen with her own unique kingdom of influence. Jo Saxton's compelling book not only reminds us as women to invest in our own heart of leadership but to invest in women everywhere." (Shayne Moore, author of Global Soccer Mom)

About the Author

Born and raised in London, Jo Saxton worked at the influential St.Thomas's Church, Sheffield, before moving to southern California with her pastor husband, Chris, and two daughters. Jo is a popular speaker throughout the United States and England, and a director of 3D Ministries, an organization that equips church leaders to create missional, discipleship-centered communities.

Alan Hirsch is the founding Director of Forge Mission Training Network. He is the co-founder of shapevine.com, an international forum for engaging with world transforming ideas. He leads Future Travelers, a learning journey applying missional-incarnational approaches to established churches and is an active participant in The Tribe of LA, a Jesus community among artists and creatives in Los Angeles. Known for his innovative approach to mission, Hirsch is a teacher and key mission strategist for churches across the western world. His popular book The Shaping of Things to Come (with Michael Frost) is widely considered to be a seminal text on mission. Alan's recent book The Forgotten Ways, has quickly become a key reference for missional thinking, particularly as it relates to movements. His book ReJesus is a radical restatement about the role that Jesus plays in defining missional movements. Untamed, his latest book (with his wife Debra) is about missional discipleship for a missional church. His experience in leadership includes leading a local church movement among the marginalized as well as heading up the Mission and Revitalization work of his denomination. Hirsch is an adjunct professor at Fuller Seminary and lectures frequently throughout Australia, Europe, and the U.S.

Debra Hirsch has led churches and ministries among young adults, the poor and the GLBT community in Australia and America for over twenty years. She is a minister of an eclectic bunch of missional artists and vagabonds who meet in downtown Los Angeles called the Tribe of L.A. and she is coauthor of Untamed: Reactivating a Missional Form of Discipleship(with Alan Hirsch). She also serves on the leadership team of the Forge Missions Training Network and Christian Associates International and on the steering team for the Missio Alliance.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By L Strom on February 23, 2012
Format: Paperback
After reading this book, I want to give a copy to every woman I know. "More Than Enchanting" is an engaging book that encourages each woman to honestly look at the way they define themselves and the relationships around them and then challenges women to step into places where God has given them influence and be a light.

At times, the book can be quite sobering as we realize that opportunities for women to lead as God has called them to are few and far between. As much as the world has progressed in gender equality, there is still much to be done. Through personal stories and words from many other leaders we get a wonderful picture of the challenges and the victories for women who are learning how to lead.

"More Than Enchanting" is not about advice and platitudes, but strong biblical teaching that invites us to find our place in the stories and apply the ancient truths to ourselves. Ms Saxton's ability to describe subtle attitudes that many of us struggle with in a straightforward, non-judgmental way helped me honestly confront these in myself and begin to untangle why they are there and what I'm going to to about it.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Frank L. Hicks Jr. on March 3, 2012
Format: Paperback
"More than Enchanting" is a book on women rising up into leadership in the Christian Church; yet it is neither abrasive not militant. Fact is, she presents some very well thought out approaches to help women reach out to the Holy Spirit and follow Jesus' command to preach to the whole world and in such a way men need to not only listen but help. Jo Saxton really has something to say and both men and women need to listen.

Her book is full of biblical references both for showing the roll women have been called to and still are called to as well as explaining issues like "helper" in Genesis and Paul's definitions of the woman's roll in the church. But although she stays with her topic of women in the church it takes it to world proportions with statistics that makes one think. The rise and fall of the church, and indeed civilization, can always be measured with the way women are treated or how they perceive themselves in the church and civilization. "...the role and status of women in the church becomes an issue of strategic significance." "...health of the church is bound up with the vitality of the women in it." Her book offers a very surprising statistic of China when offering that "...65% of the leaders in the Chinese underground Church are women." And that is even higher for countries like India reaching up to 80%.

She takes you through the Old Testament times when even women were Judges over Israel and the roll of women at the beginning of Christianity. She deals with leadership in a man dominated world without going to war. She addresses the single women in the church and also the continuance of that leadership after marriage.

Any women either in leadership rolls in the church, or with aspirations to such leadership needs to read this. And men need to read it too to better understand the calling women have to such leadership from God and thus not be a hindrance nor fight God on this issue. The book is well done and has a lot to offer.

by: Jo Saxton

This book encourages women to look at themselves and their relationships. It encourages them to look at the plan God has for them in leadership roles in the church and their lives. There are biblical references to help us along. It also has statistics that show us that the role of women in the church is so important.

This is a great, and impowering book for woman, but I believe men can learn alot from this book also. There is alot of information in this book and it is written very well. Great book.
