I Have A Thing For Women

My next book is called The Resignation of Eve what if Adams Rib is No Longer Willing to Be The Church’s Backbone published by Tyndale and Barna Books. I’ve gotten even more excited about it’s chances at getting wider exposure since Lynne Hybels (yes that Hybels) just agreed to write the foreword. Here’s a sneak peek at what Lynne had to say “I am convinced that women are our greatest untapped resource—in local communities and in the church.  Unfortunately, I fear one of the unintended results of the debate about the role of women in the church is that some women fail to take themselves seriously. “

So I admit it, following in the footsteps of my master The Lord Jesus who went out of his way to honor, and open doors of influence for them I also have a thing for women. Smart, insightful, Jesus following women really get to me. Read the stories of these women in Resignation of Eve, online and in bookstores, February 2012.

  1. I’m very much looking forward to reading this book! As a young woman in the church I was told that I shouldn’t or couldn’t lead many things (because I was a female) and when I started a prayer group my pastor told me I should step down when a male became interested in leading one. I still go to church occasionally, but if it weren’t for attending with my family (though I’m in my late 20s I live in the same town) I wouldn’t go at all probably. I’ll be sure to pre-order this and review it on my blog/twitter. Can’t wait! I’ve attended a couple of your events including the conversation with W. Paul Young in Seattle about a year ago. I have a lot of respect for the work you do.

  2. PD

    Thanks for noticing me. Im sorry about your church experience with the whole “you need a man to lead a prayer group” thing- how lame is that- can you even imagine Jesus saying something like that to any of the women he worked with.
