Introduction: The Role of Women in the Church 19

1 The Journey 23

God wrote into the fabric of your life a specific plan. Part of discovering that plan is surrendering to His will.

2 Secret Pain 41

Undealt-with pain can destroy your destiny. You must deal with your "beasts in the basement."

3 Dear God, I Need a Friend 61

God wants to be Lord of your friendships. God-ordained friendships cultivate greater fruit in the lives of both parties.

4 Women of Destiny 81

God has ordered the seasons of your life to equip you for your destiny. If you are being pulled back right now, He is only refining you for greater impact when you are released into your call.

5 Heroines of the Faith 105

God's hall of faith provides many heroines who have paved the way for you. God could be calling you to pattern your life after one of them.

6 Moms and Other Great Handmaidens of Faith 121

Godly mothers and other unsuspecting women have changed nations through the lives they have affected. Your role as a woman carries great influence.

7 Gender to Gender 145

The complete image of God will only be manifested in its full expression when men and women stand side by side in the Church.

8 The Woman Question 169

What is the role of women in the Church? Do we really believe God's Word, which says that there is neither male nor female?

9 Domestic Authority (Headship and Submission) .203

God has set up headship within the home, but not every man is head over every woman in the Church.

10 Oh, Those Difficult Passages 223

Exploring difficult passages within their context and culture rather than our own biases helps us to rethink the role of women in the Church.

11 Anointed to Serve (Spiritual Authority) 243

If God has called you to ministry, He will equip you and anoint you for the task.

12 The Cultural Reformation 265

Jesus came for the lowly, the oppressed and the downtrodden. He went out of His way to proclaim their worth. The good news of Jesus Christ wrought a cultural reformation that continues to reshape our understanding today.
