Denise George has done a wonderful job at articulating the hopes, hurts, needs and dreams of Women in the Church Today. Too many excellent Pastors have placed the true needs of the women in their congregations on the back burner. Given the life of a pastor the back burner NEVER is reached. I have know some Pastors who simply make a decision NOT to engage the women of their church on any meaningful level. Too often the result is a group of women, affected by the fall and having no male leadership who become manipulative, devisive and worse. THEN the pastor will get involved, the outcome Christ is not honored, God is not glorified, and the body is scarred........ Pastors PLEASE read this book.
