Editorial Reviews

Review

"What sets this book apart is not only the authors' careful thought but their compelling personal examples. The result is a deeply biblical yet intensely practical guide that will greatly benefit not only women, but pastors as well."
C. J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky

"In this day and age, we need more courageous visionaries who seek to release women in ministry while honoring the complementarian framework of God's Word. This is a helpful resource for all who wish to join in this pursuit."
Mary A. Kassian, Professor of Women's Studies, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild

"Women's Ministry is a biblically rich reflection of the authors' very thesis-when men and women humbly and joyfully complement each other's God-given roles and gifts, spiritual grace flows for the nurture of His Church."
Peter A. Lillback, Senior Pastor, Proclamation Presbyterian Church, President, Westminster Theological Seminary

"Finally, Ligon Duncan and Susan Hunt have given the church a clear theological framework from which to build an effective women's ministry."
Randy Stinson, Senior Fellow, Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

Format: Paperback
Women's Ministry in the Local Church, authored by J. Ligon Duncan and Susan Hunt, is a practical book that seeks to provide guidance on how and why a church can and should have an effective women's ministry. It is a timely book, arriving at a point when the church is in need of this type of biblical guidance. The role of women in the church has been an area of great dispute of late, though thankfully, it seems that Scripture will prevail. However many evangelical women, and even those who may appear to be mature Christians, are functional feminists because, as the authors point out, "the world's paradigm for womanhood is the only one they have heard." The church has much ground to make up.

Within this book Duncan and Hunt construct a framework of theology through which a local church will be able to implement a ministry that honors God's plan and purpose for the church. Rather than moving against or beside the church, the ministry will become one with the church, supporting and complementing other ministries while encouraging and edifying women. According to the authors, the purpose of this book is to strengthen Christ's church by presenting a practical theology of women's ministry in the local church. The book answers five questions that are fundamental to a successful, biblical ministry for and by women:

* Why should a church have a women's ministry - what is the biblical apologetic?

* Who is responsible for the women's ministry in a church?

* How does a women's ministry relate to the other ministries in a church?

* What are the tasks of a women's ministry?

* How does a church implement a biblical approach to women's ministry?

Format: Paperback
My husband brought this home from the Shepherd's Conference for me - and it is SO good! It's written from a very Biblical perspective, and has a big focus on submission and discipleship. There is so much in here: older ladies discipling younger ladies, godliness, submission, compassion, serving others, and Biblical womanhood. It's loaded with Scripture throughout. You don't have to be involved in leadership of a women's group for this to be relevant. I wholeheartedly recommend it for all women - and for their pastors!

Duncan and Hunt do an excellent job of remaining faithful to the text and bringing out practical helps. If you are a pastor who wants good ideas grounded in the Scriptures on how women's ministries ought to run, this is the right book for you. Every piece of advice is based on the authors' love for God's Word and their desire to see the Body of Christ built up. Excellent resource for pastors and anyone interested in women's ministries in the church.

An excellent resource for beginning or sustaining a women's ministry in the local church. A clear explanation for why one is needed in the church and how to think scripturally as we work with women's ministries the church. I always appreciate a book written where the word of God is the final authority for why we do things, and where ministries begin and are under the local church. I highly recommend this book.

This book was very helpful in understanding the biblical view of women's roles in the church. It encourages the empowerment of women in a positive way. This is an excellent guide for developing a meaningful ministry to women of all ages within the church body. Women want to know how God can use them to make a difference for His kingdom and this book addresses that concern very well.

I bought this simply because I wanted to research women's ministry in the local church and I have really benefitted from it. When I read this book I get excited about it! As a pastor I want to strengthen and enable the women in our church to serve Christ and carry out the Great Commission. This book was helpful in laying out a basic rationale for that.
