Editorial Reviews

Aimee Byrd calls for men and women in the church to take the discipleship of women seriously. Some pastors have a bad habit of failing to scrutinize and engage women in the church, and male church leaders often fail to be open to contributions from women in the church. This book offers several practical ways that pastors can do better to overcome the separation of women’s ministries has resulted in a sort of pink and flowery ghetto of theology.
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---women’s 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.
Aimee Byrd equips readers in the lost art of discernment. You don't need to agree with Aimee on all of the fine points to learn from her. Aimee provides practical tips for reading, learning, listening, and discerning.
