About this product
- DescriptionChaplain Dawn Garrett has a message for all women considering leadership in ministry. Beyond praying and asking God for guidance, she counsels building a strong scriptural foundation, being prepared to defend it, and embracing opposition as an opportunity to educate. In this book, Chaplain Garrett offers a common-sense approach to the issue of women in leadership that takes into account the bigger picture surrounding the foundational writings of Christianity and the influence of Judeo-Christian values on America's democracy. She begins by describing the faith of the Founding Fathers and identifying how it informed their crafting of the Constitution. She then examines women's roles in the Old Testament. At the heart of the book, she references the New Testament to show that Christ clearly supported, empowered, and released women to pursue their callings and that Paul carried Christ's message to women forward through the epistles. This easy-to-read book may ruffle a few feathers but it will also serve to open people's hearts and minds to the liberating truth that women and men are equally subject to Christ, the ultimate high priest.
