Item description for Clergy Women_an Uphill Calling by Barbara Brown Zikmund, Patricia M. Chang & Lummis Mei Yin Chang Zikmund...

In the largest study ever of clergywomen in America, these Hartford Seminary researchers give far-reaching answers to questions about calling, ordination, leadership styles, lay expectations, variations between denominations, pay scales, and more. Includes hundreds of interviews.

Publishers Description

Perhaps the most significant event in twentieth-century American Protestant churches has been the entry of tens of thousands of women into the church's ordained ministry. How are these women's experiences as ministers different from those of their male counterparts? What are their callings and careers like? What are their prospects for employment, income, and satisfaction? Based on a wealth of statistical data as well as in-depth personal interviews, this book offers the most authoritative information ever about the real experiences of clergy women (and men), along with anecdotes that show what the life of American clergy today is really like.

Reviews - What do customers think about Clergy Women?

Extensive research  Jan 22, 1999
An extensive research to come out of Hartford Theological Seminary, which details quite importantly the life of clergy. However, I would argue that much of the comment is equally applicable to male clergy, so the book is not as exciting and as groundbreaking as one would perhaps expect. Similarly, from a feminist perspective, I was somewhat surprised to find a comment in the book which tells us that women clergy are often more able to go where they are needed in small communities because their husbands will have good jobs. Surely this is a step backwards? Otherwise a good read.
