In this book, edited by Mary Swartley and Rhoda Keener, women tell how God has called them to leading roles in church ministries.
Just as the church has told the stories of women in the Bible, we can learn from the experiences of these Mennonite women of faith who responded to God's call. As you read their stories, you may begin to see God working in your life in new ways. God may be calling you to be courageous and willing to risk the unknown, with the confidence that God will also be your strength and guide.
These dramatic stories of Mennonite women theologians, pastors, educators, and administrators speak to issues of denominational change and struggle -- and also generally to interrelations of women, men, and faith.
