Sane Advice for Women in Ministry Leadership Jun 25, 2009
I have loved this book. Nancy Beach addresses the challenges of women interacting with men who are not always sure a woman can or should lead in church circles. Beach avoids doctrinal disputes and adresses practical concerns with practical answers. While she deals with the special challenges of women in leadership roles, most of her leadership advise is applicable to men as well as to women. Her book is not a rebel cry for women to claim leadership authority but rather, a reassurance to women that God can and does use women in leadership roles beyond children's and women's ministry and how to navigate in that arena with confidence and grace. I highly recommend this book to women already in leadership as well as to women who suspect they may be called to leadership. Beach also addresses the concerns of pastors and other male lay leaders who are still not sure if women should lead in the church. Sane, practical and yet, clearly inspired.
