The title says it all! A person experiencing abuse needs to have courage and needs someone to coach and encourage them through the process. A coach helps them be prepared to admit the possibility that they are in an abusive situation and shows them the steps to take toward freedom.  Read more
Find Your Brave is not an explicitly egalitarian book. It does not address issues such as women in church leadership or the relations between the sexes. Instead, Holly Wagner exhorts her readers to remain strong during times of adversity by drawing upon the strength of God. Her message is applicable, therefore, to every Christian, no matter what doctrinal position they hold concerning the role of women in the church. Read more

Everbloom: Stories of Living Deeply Rooted and Transformed Lives is a book meant to be sipped and savored. At first glance it looks like it might be a book of writing prompts, but it is really a collection of forty-two short essays and poems written by women from a large variety of life stages and experiences, and it is also an invitation to reflect on one’s own life experiences.   Read more
Does your church have a mission statement? Is it concise or very vague? Do you know how to build up your church’s leadership? Dr. Jeanne Porter King has developed this handbook, Building a Church Full of Leaders, to help each congregation not only write a clear mission statement but develop a strategy to empower and equip a church full of leaders.

Strong-Willed Woman. What is your reaction to this phrase? Cynthia Ulrich Tobias, author of the book, A Woman of Strength and Purpose, and a self-proclaimed strong-willed woman, believes that if you have a negative reaction to the term “strong-willed woman,” you’ve probably encountered a woman who has let her strong will go sideways. The purpose of Cynthia’s book is to teach Strong-Willed Women (or as Cynthia abbreviates, SWW) to not let their strong will go sideways, but to direct their strong will to improve relationships, expand influence, and honor God.

The Gender Conversation is a book that emerged as a result of a symposium hosted by Marling College in 2015. The purpose of the symposium was to "deepen mutual understanding and respect, highlight common ground, clarify points of difference, and unite us all in a quest to learn from the Scriptures and live in the light of the gospel."

In the end, I find that Marry Him and Be Submissive stands as a good account of the author’s life and opinions but in no way reflects biblical instruction on marriage and/or submission. As a fun read about someone’s life = A- As a book about Christian marriage = D Read more

Each story in I Will Follow Jesus: Storybook Bible is retold in an accurate and child- friendly way. Stories are accompanied by a short lesson that relates the Bible to a child's life and experiences Read more

The view that only men can use their gifts in service to the Lord is too widespread in our churches today and should be countered by the evidence. I believe that Eminent Missionary Women, though gently written, is an antidote to unscriptural teaching by patriarchal groups. It is tragic that in our day so many people in the church actually believe that women are only called to serve men in the home.  Read more
