The Company of Earlier Generations

On March 28, 2014

Scripture teaches that the company we keep can influence our character. How many of you also believe that the books you read can impact your spiritual life? The friends we keep, even from earlier generations, can inform our faith in powerful ways. Perhaps that is one reason why so many of us are passionate about church history and Christian biographies!

Did you first embrace biblical equality, not because you were influenced by secular feminism but because you were influenced by a Christian woman of an earlier age? Do you consider Katharine Bushnell, Dorothy Sayers, Lilias Trotter, Dorothy Day, Clare of Assisi, or Junia one of your treasured friends? If not, consider visiting our book service this week and make a few new friends this summer–friends who will change your life forever.

Check out our list of women leaders we are sure will inspire you! Or, consider reading a book on women in history that CBE is considering for our book service. We are always looking for book reviewers who can help us keep up with the increasing number of books written on women in ministry.

Wishing you a summer filled with a few new friends!
