Publisher's Description

A practical and inspiring guide to living an empowered life-from the woman described in the New York Times as "Billy Graham and Oprah rolled into one."

Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook-known to thousands as "Dr. Sujay" and "the Wall Street Pastor"-is one of the most accomplished and highly regarded ministers and spiritual teachers of our time. She is an in-demand speaker around the country, and continues to lead her legendary, standing-room-only weekly Wall Street lunch empowerment worship services. Her pages-long résumé reveals that she has achieved impressive goals and overcome great obstacles.

Drawing on the lessons from her own life and the lives of the thousands she teaches weekly, Dr. Sujay offers the ideas and practices that have delivered her from pain to power in a practical and inspiring guide for women of all ages and races. She uses the biblical story of Deborah as the foundation-Deborah the judge, Deborah the prophetess, Deborah the warrior, and Deborah the wife-to show today's woman how to start winning where they are now, and how to build a life of stepping-stones rather than stumbling blocks. She distills all of these life lessons and experiences into the path of destiny for each woman-the path of success and spiritual fulfillment.

With timeless biblical principles as a foundation, as well as transformative modern-day examples, Dr. Sujay illustrates that every woman is destined for a remarkable life. In Becoming a Woman of Destiny, she explains how women can release themselves from their prisons of fear, failure, and a painful past and move forward confidently into their own greatness. Also included in this life- changing book are guidelines for creating "Destiny Circles"-powerful groups of women who come together for support, inspiration, and encouragement.

Becoming a Woman of Destiny is a groundbreaking book that will help any woman wanting to live her fullest present and future.

Author Bio

Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook is one of the most distinguished pastors in the nation. She was the first black woman: to serve as president of the 10,000-member Hampton University Ministers' Conference; to be elected the senior pastor of the 200-year-old American Baptist Churches of the USA; to be appointed Chaplain of the NYPD; and to receive a White House Fellowship. A graduate and faculty member of Harvard University, she has worked closely with NBC, ABC, and CBS, and has been featured everywhere from Time Out New York and Ebony magazines to Good Morning America and The Tavis Smiley Show.

Publisher's Weekly

In this short but spirited volume, Cook, first female president of the Hampton University Ministers' Conference, presents the biblical judge and prophet Deborah as a model for women looking for purpose and fulfillment in a new season of life. As she examines what she calls the four pillars of Deborah's personality--intelligence, spirituality, action, and community–Cook creates a bold and meaningful template for self-actualization among women over fifty, replete with personal stories of "women of destiny" of her acquaintance, told skillfully and with respect and admiration. Although the focus of the book is narrow, with too many of her illustrative stories revolving around women in the ministry, its clear central metaphor and logical organization are strengths, as is its practicality: discussion questions and checklists are included at the end of every chapter. Cook herself is a strength; her experience in religious counseling, as well as her clear, optimistic take on Christian values and her obvious enthusiasm for the subject, will leave readers in all phases of life inspired. (Sept.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

Editorial Reviews

"Becoming a Woman of Destiny brings to mind my mother, Coretta Scott King. The four pillars discussed in Becoming a Woman of Destiny reflect the life [my mother] lived and the lessons she taught as she moved into the second half of her life after my father's assassination. To all mature women, this is a must read to accompany you on your journey to become one of the Wisdom Women."
--Bernice A. King
