This book is an important guide for seminary students preparing for ministry and pastors who want to reach the entire congregation. Drawingon her many years of speaking to women, men, and preachers, Alice Mathews explores both themyths and the realities of women as listeners. She considers the ways women think about themselves, make ethical decisions, handle stress, learn, and view leadership and power andapplies the results to the task of preaching. Mathews urges preachers to be mindful oflanguage and advocates the use of anecdotesthat do not ignore women or merely typecast women in narrowly defined roles.
Alice P. Matthews (Ph.D., Iliff School of Theology and University of Denver) is LoisW. Bennett Distinguished Associate Professor of Educational Ministries and Women's Ministries at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.Previously, Alice served as a missionary in Europe forseventeen years, taught at Denver Seminary, and was dean of the Seminary of the East (Philadelphia Center). She is a writer and co-host (with Haddon Robinson) of the daily Bible-teachingprogram Discover the Word. She is author of A Woman God Can Lead, A Woman Jesus Can Teach, and A Woman God Can Use.
In most twenty-first century congregations, women outnumber men by as much as fifty percent or more. Unfortunately, masculine anecdotes and a lack of understanding of the different ways women and men listen, learn, and perceive ideas of leadership and power leave many women feeling detached from the messages conveyed from the pulpit.
How can a pastor effectively minister to both men and women? How do the ways in which women understand sermons differ from those of men? Preaching That Speaks to Women invites preachers to consider how gender affects the way sermons are understood and calls them to preaching that relates to the entire congregation.
Drawing from her experience as a teacher of ministry students, as well as her experience as a missionary, conference speaker, and radio Bible teacher, Alice Mathews explores both the myths and legitimate boundaries for speaking about women as listeners. She considers the ways women think about themselves, make ethical decisions, handle stress, learn, and view leadership and power and applies the results to the task of preaching. Mathews advocates effective preaching that does not ignore women or merely typecast women in narrowly defined roles.
