KochStrongsville, OhioAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I found the book very interesting. I also found that my Pastor pretty well fills the needs of the women in our church and also many of the subjects presented in the book. I did give the book to my Pastor after I finished it.
Cindy4 Stars Out Of 5August 29, 2009CindyDenise 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.
Rick Stafford4 Stars Out Of 5August 9, 2007Rick StaffordAs a pastor over 6 churches, I can say this book was an eye opener for me. It has inspired me to use it in open discussions with the women in order to encourage them to respectfully and honestly express their feelings and needs.Since it is a survey of hundreds of woman, its findings give outstanding insight. I highly recommend it to all church leaders.
Howard Rich1 Stars Out Of 5May 3, 2007Howard RichThe pages of this book are filled with the real reason women in our churches are frustrated; men are disengaged. I have given the book an above 0 rating only due to the fact that Mrs. George accurately reports on what women are saying. I do recommend reading this book as it relates to what women are experiencing. Pastor, the solutions can be found in helping the men of your church find Christ and mature in Him. If our churches truly want to minister to women and children it is imperative to re-engage men. Check out Why Men Hate Going to Church by David Murrow.
