While many have written studies of the women in the Bible, this is a new kind of book--one in which an international team of male and female scholars look afresh at vilified and neglected women in the Bible.
The Bible teaches equality and essential dignity of men and women of all ethnicities, ages, and classes, as all are created in the image and likeness of God. Since the church is called to be salt and light in the context in which we live, it is essential that the church recognizes and promotes the biblical understanding that leadership and service is based on the gifting of the Holy Spirit. The revelation of Triune God is the foundation of mutuality.
This is the fifth volume in the Women and Leadership: Research, Theory, and Practice series from the International Leadership Association.

The purpose of this volume is the provide a forum for women to theorize about women's leadership in multiple ways and in multiple contexts.
This recording summarizes the "New Creation" theme of the Bible and shows how this is not limited to the future but is inaugurated in the church and transforms Christian relationships. It challenges us to live in light of the new creation, welcoming the transformative work of the Holy Spirit, who gifts both women and men for ministry.
