Editorial Reviews

Review

"Women have always worked and in her fully Christian book, Katelyn Beaty celebrates and affirms the work of women in every sphere,generation, vocation, season, and role as good. With the mind of a journalist and the heart of a disciple, she skillfully sets us free to pursue and enjoy your work as image bearers of God. A Woman's Place will ignite a long overdue and healthy conversation in our churches about women and work. I loved this book and I wish I could put it in the hands of every woman I know - there is freedom and permission and celebration on each page." (- Sarah Bessey, author of Jesus Feminist and Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith )

"A thoughtful biblical perspective on women and work has been long overdue, but thanks to Katelyn Beaty’s excellent A Woman’s Place, the wait is over. May this thorough and provocative treatment of a tremendously important subject find the widest possible audience.” (— Eric Metaxas, New York Times Bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor Martyr, Prophet, Spy and host of the Eric Metaxas Show. )

We all work—and Katelyn Beaty has written a theology of work for all of us. Whether you are a man or a woman, whether you work at school,office, or home, A Woman’s Place will inform, challenge, and inspire you as you pursue faithfulness and fruitfulness in your labors. (Karen Swallow Prior, Ph.D., author of Booked: Literature in the Soul of Me and Fierce Convictions--The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More: Poet, Reformer Abolitionist )

"Shows, not merely tells, what it means for women to take their places alongside men in fulfilling God’s command to cultivate the world... Convincingly calls each of us, female and male, to a wiser, fuller, and healthier life." (—John G. Stackhouse, Jr., Samuel J. Mikolaski Professor of Religious Studies, Crandall University, Moncton, Canada )

"With characteristic transparency, elegance, and prophetic strength, Katelyn Beaty has given us a book that I pray will have a profound influence on women and men alike." (Scott Sauls, senior pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville, Tennessee and author of Jesus Outside the Lines )

"Insightful... Incisive commentary on how cultural mores have been overlaidon biblical texts should help the Christian community pry off those faulty, 'how-it-is' assumptions and free us to explore the reforms needed to get to 'how-it-ought-to-be.'" (—Dr. Amy L. Sherman, author, Kingdom Calling: Vocational Stewardship for the Common Good )

"Women in all life stages will benefit from Katelyn Beaty’s holistic and positive theology of work,whether that work is carpools or corporate board meetings—or both. Men also need to read this so they can encourage their wives, daughters, nieces,neighbors and sisters in Christ to reach their God-given potential." (Kara Powell, PhD, executive director of the Fuller Youth Institute, author of Sticky Faith and Growing Young )

“With adroit hands and an authentic heart, Katelyn Beaty opens our eyes to the central place work has for every image bearer of God. Skillfully utilizing historical, theological and cultural lenses, a multifaceted and compelling picture is painted of why human work matters. While the focus of her writing serves as a persuasive apologetic for the goodness and rightness of a woman’s place in the workplace, it is a must read book for both women and men. A Woman’s Place is a welcomed an essential contribution to the dynamically growing faith and work movement. I highly recommend it!” (Tom Nelson, Senior Pastor, Christ Community Church, Kansas City and President of Made to Flourish )

In A Woman’s Place, Katelyn Beaty lays out a comprehensive vision for Christian women to be fruitful in their vocational calling, and for the church to equip them to flourish. Whether you are a man or a woman, it will challenge your thinking and encourage you to a better and deeper view of vocation." (Ed Stetzer, executive director of LifeWay Research of the Southern Baptist Convention )

"As this excellent book evidences, a woman's place is throughout the culture. Indeed, where women are not present the world lacks itsfull depth. Katelyn puts words to what I've seen each year through the female entrepreneurs we support -- women bring unique stories, competencies,convictions, and a holistic way of seeing life that all of us need to truly flourish." (Dave Blanchard, Co-Founder & CEO, Praxis )
