Publisher's Description

The managing editor of Christianity Today and founder of the popular Her.meneutics blog encourages women to find joy in vocation in this game-changing look at the importance of women and work.

Women today inhabit and excel in every profession, yet many Christian women wonder about the value of work outside the home. And in circles where the traditional family model is highly regarded, many working women who sense a call to work find little church or peer support.

In A Woman’s Place, Katelyn Beaty, print managing editor of Christianity Today and cofounder of Her.meneutics, insists it’s time to reconsider women’s work. She challenges us to explore new ways to live out the Scriptural call to rule over creation—in the office, the home, in ministry, and beyond.

Starting with the Bible’s approach to work—including the creation story, the Proverbs 31 woman, and New Testament models—Beaty shows how women’s roles in Western society have changed; how the work-home divide came to exist; and how the Bible offers models of women in leadership. Readers will be inspired by stories of women effecting dynamic cultural change, leading institutions, and living out grand and beautiful vocations.

Far from insisting that women must work outside the home, Beaty urges all believers into a better framework for imagining career, ambition, and calling. Whether caring for children, running a home, business, or working full-time, all readers will be inspired to live in a way that glorifies God.

Sure to spark discussion, A Woman’s Place is a game-changing look at the importance of work for women and men alike.

Editorial Reviews

"Women have always worked and in her fully Christian book, Katelyn Beaty celebrates and affirms the work of women in every sphere,generation, vocation, season, and role as good. With the mind of a journalist and the heart of a disciple, she skillfully sets us free to pursue and enjoy your work as image bearers of God. A Woman's Place will ignite a long overdue and healthy conversation in our churches about women and work. I loved this book and I wish I could put it in the hands of every woman I know - there is freedom and permission and celebration on each page."
"A thoughtful biblical perspective on women and work has been long overdue, but thanks to Katelyn Beaty’s excellent A Woman’s Place, the wait is over. May this thorough and provocative treatment of a tremendously important subject find the widest possible audience.”
"As this excellent book evidences, a woman's place is throughout the culture. Indeed, where women are not present the world lacks itsfull depth. Katelyn puts words to what I've seen each year through the female entrepreneurs we support -- women bring unique stories, competencies,convictions, and a holistic way of seeing life that all of us need to truly flourish."
"Advocatingfor the empowerment of women to fulfill their God-given roles, Katelyn Beatylooks throughout Scripture and history for insights. What she finds is anencouragement to every woman who feels called to work—both inside and outsidethe home."
"Long needed, Beatyoffers a thoughtful integration of secular and Christian thought about theemerging possibilities and continued challenges facing women in America’sprofessional workplace."
"…certain to generate lively discussion and some personal soul-searching"

 
"Work is an essential part of being madein God’s image, and women are essential image-bearers. Katelyn Beaty’s “AWoman’s Place” brings reflection on Scripture and an informed mind to helpanswer the question implied in the title—a woman’s place is to be an agent ofshalom working with dignity and strength in all spheres of God’sredemptive plan for a flourishing creation."
We all work—and Katelyn Beaty has written a theology of work for all of us. Whether you are a man or a woman, whether you work at school,office, or home, A Woman’s Place will inform, challenge, and inspire you as you pursue faithfulness and fruitfulness in your labors.
"Shows, not merely tells, what it means for women to take their places alongside men in fulfilling God’s command to cultivate the world... Convincingly calls each of us, female and male, to a wiser, fuller, and healthier life."
"With characteristic transparency, elegance, and prophetic strength, Katelyn Beaty has given us a book that I pray will have a profound influence on women and men alike."
"Insightful... Incisive commentary on how cultural mores have been overlaidon biblical texts should help the Christian community pry off those faulty, 'how-it-is' assumptions and free us to explore the reforms needed to get to 'how-it-ought-to-be.'"
"Women in all life stages will benefit from Katelyn Beaty’s holistic and positive theology of work,whether that work is carpools or corporate board meetings—or both. Men also need to read this so they can encourage their wives, daughters, nieces,neighbors and sisters in Christ to reach their God-given potential."
“With adroit hands and an authentic heart, Katelyn Beaty opens our eyes to the central place work has for every image bearer of God. Skillfully utilizing historical, theological and cultural lenses, a multifaceted and compelling picture is painted of why human work matters. While the focus of her writing serves as a persuasive apologetic for the goodness and rightness of a woman’s place in the workplace, it is a must read book for both women and men. A Woman’s Place is a welcomed an essential contribution to the dynamically growing faith and work movement. I highly recommend it!”
In A Woman’s Place, Katelyn Beaty lays out a comprehensive vision for Christian women to be fruitful in their vocational calling, and for the church to equip them to flourish. Whether you are a man or a woman, it will challenge your thinking and encourage you to a better and deeper view of vocation."
