Reviews - What do customers think about The Stained-Glass Ceiling: Churches and Their Women Pastors?

Full of important insights  Jun 22, 2007
Susan Purvis has not attempted to write a book full of definitive study results. Rather, she has done an indepth look at two churches, both quite large in size and substantive in ministry scope, who have called women as senior pastor/head of staff. These churches are in different denominations, but both have many of the same needs and are impacted by the same human concerns as to power struggles, distribution of power, interaction by all levels of the congregation, etc. Most striking is the insight that both these pastors did their personal "homework" in building their own internal spiritual framework before attempting to build the external framework of the local church parish.
