Why are so many well-intentioned women falling for poor - even false - theology? The Devil has been effectively targeting women from the beginning, so why are they often left to fend for themselves in so-called women’s ministries?
Writing to concerned women and church officers, Aimee Byrd pinpoints the problem, especially the commodification of women's ministry. Aimee answers the hot-button issues - How can women grow in discernment? How should pastors preach to women? What are our roles within the church? - and points us in the direction of a multifaceted solution.

Aimee Byrd writes with wit and wisdom; biblical clarity and theological maturity. What she writes about here is a matter of urgent pastoral concern to every minister and elder. There are movements and ideas around which are offering solace and encouragement to those who would hold back our sisters in Christ from being all that they could be for Him. Women are our most committed resource for doing the work of the kingdom and deserve our best thinking and support. It is our solemn duty to guard all the flock of God; to nurture and use their spiritual gifts and Aimee helps us to identify and address the issues head on.
Aimee Byrd fearlessly takes on a range of problems that are not often addressed in the same work---womens ministries and women themselves who lack proper theological training; pastors who neglect the training and the gifts of the women who could be deployed in the kingdom to great effect; and the hyper-complementarianism that is itself bad theology. May all those who need to hear her message give it heed.
Unfortunately, many of the answers offered to women today about their place in the church are the result of asking the wrong questions. Fortunately, Aimee Byrd is asking the right questions--tough questions, to be sure, but questions that are much needed and long overdue. No Little Women steers the discussion about women and the church back to its rightful place by uniting a high view of scripture and a high view of women.
