From the blog to the book, with humor and righteous outrage, Shirley Taylor gives you a look at leadership roles for today's Christian women. Women are told they are equal-but they have different functions. That theology is not found in the Bible. But it determines the roles women are allowed in church, and even extends inside their own homes. Women are told they are created by God's grand design to graciously submit to their husbands because by doing so, they are actually submitting to Jesus. We know women have different functions, but whether or not they lift the toilet seat is not a spiritual function, and should not be the criteria for leadership roles. The church, which should have been the first to recognize women's equality, has proven to be the last holdout against women. Women are beginning to question this theology. This book gives insight to what pastors are saying about women, and what they are preaching on Sunday morning. It calls them to account for their teaching. It also calls women to account for neglecting their responsibility to themselves and to other women. You will be challenged to get off your equal-but and speak up and do something. Men will be challenged to take their place alongside women, not in front of women. Originally written as blog posts on www.bwebaptistwomenforequality.wordpress.com, the content has been edited, updated, expanded, and revised. This book is written for Christians, but anyone who has a sense of justice will be outraged at what Christians are doing to each other when they deny women full equality in the church and in the home. Shirley Taylor is the author of the companion book Raising the Hood: A Christian Look at Manhood and Womanhood.
