Women's Ministry in the Local Church

Crossway Books, 2006 - 175 Seiten

Susan Hunt and Ligon Duncan walk through the Scriptures to help readers better understand what it means to have an effective, biblical women’s ministry in the church. The benefits of women’s ministries are great: training and discipling, evangelizing, and reaching out to the poor and needy. This book, written by seasoned ministry leaders, provides many proven tools to help start a women’s ministry in your church.

“What sets this book apart is not only the authors’ careful thought but their compelling personal examples. The result is a deeply biblical yet intensely practical guide that will greatly benefit not only women, but pastors as well.”
C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries

“In this day and age, we need more courageous visionaries who seek to release women in ministry while honoring the complementarian framework of God’s Word. This is a helpful resource for all who wish to join in this pursuit.”
Mary A. Kassian, Distinguished Professor of Women’s Studies, Southern Baptist Seminary, Louisville

Women’s Ministry is a biblically rich reflection of the authors’ very thesis—when men and women humbly and joyfully complement each other’s God-given roles and gifts, spiritual grace flows for the nurture of His Church.”
Peter Lillback, Senior Pastor, Proclamation Presbyterian Church; president, Westminster Theological Seminary

“Finally, Ligon Duncan and Susan Hunt have given the church a clear theological framework from which to build an effective women’s ministry.”
Randy Stinson, Executive Director, Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
