In Good Company: Women in the Ministry

Front Cover
Lesley Orr Macdonald
Wild Goose Publications, 1999 - Ordination of women - 189 pages
A unique collection of personal stories by women from many denominations about the struggle for equality by women in the ministry and those still excluded from it. They tell of stereotyping, assumptions, tokenism, discrimination, trivialisation; abuse, isolation and the 'stained glass celling' created by the church's obsession with power, rank and position. This book makes clear the kinds of obstacles in the way of women and gives a glimpse of the faulty theology that underlies opposition to them. It highlights the challenge that women bring to existing church structures and offers hope for a truly all-inclusive, all-affirming and empowering ministry.
