The Resignation Of Eve by Jim Henderson

  This book is a great eye opener and very thought provoking. What would happen to our churches if one week all the women decided not to show up?
   We would have a small if even existent choir. We would perhaps have no backup staff. Only the pastor and a few men. 
    Let's face it, women are the backbone of most minisrties. This book is subtritled  "What if Adam's Rib Is No Longer Willing To be The Church's Backbone?"  Henderson offers in short story form the problem and the solution. He interviewed many women in the setting up of this book. He allows them to express themselves freely.
     This book I recommend for all leaders in the church. We need to appreciate more the women we do have working in our church in what ever area.
   You may not agree with every point. You don't have to. It will stretch you if nothing else.
   It is published by Barna, an imprint of Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.

  1. Thanks for the kind review of Jim's new book, The Resignation of Eve. In writing this book, Jim was hopeful it was stimulate conversation about this topic. So often, we always do what we have always done without thinking about why we do it.

    This is an opportunity to have that conversation about women's roles in church.
