The rich history of the church is built upon the shoulders of countless women, most of whose stories are rarely told. The lives of such women testify to the Gospel’s power to shatter barriers that divide us by gender, socioeconomic status, and ethnicity. In Carrying On the Great Tradition, six heroines answer God’s call despite the costs. Their tenacity and sense of purpose inspires men and women alike.

Jennifer Dunham is a recent graduate of Bethel University, where she earned a BA in biblical and theological studies. She is currently on staff at Christians for Biblical Equality.

No Time for Silence: Evangelical Women in Public Ministry around the Turn of the Century

  • Author: Janette Hassey
  • Publisher: Christians for Biblical Equality
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 254

No Time for Silence documents evangelical women who taught at Bible institutes, preached at conferences, served at local churches, and led revivals more than 100 years ago. Debate over women’s public ministry tends to focus on biblical and theological issues while ignoring church history. Janette Hassey counters the popular but misleading claim that evangelical feminism is simply an accommodation to recent secular feminist and theologically liberal movements for women’s rights. Since the mid–nineteenth century, those who endorsed women’s public ministry were convinced that a literal approach to the Bible, and especially prophecy, demanded such leadership by women.

Janette Hassey earned an MA in New Testament theology from Denver Seminary and a PhD in history of Christianity from the University of Chicago Divinity School. She is ordained by the Christus Victor Church, and works in church and school ministry. Hassey has been a visiting instructor in church history at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

Partners in Marriage and Ministry

  • Author: Ronald W. Pierce
  • Publisher: Christians for Biblical Equality
  • Publication Date: 2011
  • Pages: 120

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Does the Bible prescribe gender roles for men and women? Are men uniquely called to exercise authority in marriage and church ministry? Is submission for women only, or has God created us to live together in a partnership? Partners in Marriage and Ministry answers these questions by clearly presenting what the Bible teaches about understanding gender, building a strong and intimate marriage, and serving God in ministry.

Ronald W. Pierce earned a PhD from Fuller Theological Seminary and has taught biblical studies and theology at Biola University since 1976. He is coeditor of Discovering Biblical Equality: Complementarity without Hierarchy.
