Publisher's Summary

This book features a number of autobiographical accounts as to how various persons have come to change their minds about women in leadership. Well-known evangelical leaders - individuals and couples, males and females, from a broad range of denominational affiliations and ethnic diversity - share their surprising journeys from a more-or-less restrictive view to an open inclusive view that recognizes a full shared partnership of leadership in the home and in the ministries of the church based on gifts, not gender.
This book offers a positive vision for the future of women and men together as partners of equal worth without competitiveness in the work of equipping this and the next generation of Christian disciples for "the work of ministry" and service in the Kingdom of God.

Interesting read

I enjoyed this audiobook however found it quite hard to follow at times with only one reader for both male and female testimonies.

Surprised at this considering it is a book about women in leadership.

Content wise, on the whole I found it thought provoking and challenging, although occasional comments from some contributors to this book, comparing those who hold different views on this subject to Nazis, terrorists, slave traders, calling them evil and 'wondering' how many of them would go to hell was really really unhelpful. Surely when discussing something as emotionally sensitive as this, a little more love would have better.
