Item description for Destiny Denied: The Veiling of Women in the Traditional Church by Barbara Boone Wooten...
Overview Sexism is denounced in the workplace, so why hasn't it been in the church? Barbara Wooten tackles that tough question in her new book Destiny Denied. Destiny Denied discusses the full ramifications of subordination and its impact on women but is not a condemnation of men or women who have a traditionalist belief system. Wooten does, however, provide scriptural answers for those who believe that a woman should not be restricted to a limited role within the church and home.
Publishers Description Sexism is denounced in the workplace, so why hasn't it been in the church? Barbara Wooten tackles this tough question and discusses the full ramifications of subordination and its impact on women. She provides scriptural answers for those who believe that a woman should not be restricted to a limited role within the church and home. Wooten points out that men and women should be able to tap into God's best practices without the limitations and constraints of man-made restrictive thoughts and theories. Highlighted is the fact that Jesus did use women in ministry while He was here on Earth, and He wants to use women today in the great harvest field. Wooten notes that it says in Matthew 28: 19: All Christians are to go and make disciples of all nations. Therefore, man has no legitimate argument in limiting women's participation in the Great Commission or ministry to those who are lost.

A Must Read Oct 18, 2009
Destiny Denied is a book that does not hold back on some of the myths that have prevented the traditional church from being all that God has called it to be. It returns to Genesis in creation (as well as the Hebrew/Greek), examining what God really said about men and women. In studying women' struggles, Destiny Denied painstakingly moves through scripture and history. Various theologians, biblical scholars and historians corroborate Dr. Wooten's findings that Jesus came to bring liberation to all who seek Him. God is no respecter of person--both men and women were created in His Image and they were commissioned to take dominion on this earth.
This is a no-compromise book. The traditional church must take the shackles off of women and allow their gifts to be used in the Body of Christ. Read it and your life will be revolutionized whether you are a man or woman!
scriptural and historical facts Aug 17, 2008
Destiny Denied is a scriptural and historical chronicle of women's lives down through the ages. I give it an excellent rating because it is not Christian pablum--it provides in-depth meat the reader can chew on in successive readings. The truths within the book are substantiated and referenced by theologians, biblical scholars, ministry leaders and historians. Dr. Wooten explores the Genesis account of the creation and fall of humankind. She examines the ramifications of the fall and its negative impact on women by going back to the Hebrew-Greek. The mistreatment of women down through the centuries, even today, is evaluated thoroughly. Women in Third World countries, as well as women in many Christian denominations (to a lesser degree) are feeling the residuals of not being able to fulfill their destinies.
