Jann Aldredge-Clanton's autobiographical book is a must read for those on both sides of the Women in Christian Ministry debate. Her story mirrors those of the many women of our day who have hear the call to full time vocational ministry, but must overcome denominational prejudice in order to have God's call recognized on earth. Her slow awakening to the call, her determined pursuit for justice, not only for herself, but for thousands of women like herself who have been denied the blessing of ordination because of differing views of biblical and theological interpretations, is a revelationary story worth the reading. Her story is at times humorous, and at times sad, but always inspiring. The emergence of the self styled Louisiana "dumb blond" Baptist preacher's daughter to the well educated Professor/Preacher and then to being one of the most powerful voices for freedom for all humankind is the stuff of legends. The only drawn back is that the book has no index to assist in keeping up with the large cast of supporting characters. Dr. Aldredge-Clanton redefines the word Baptist to include all who stand on the denominations historic doctrine of priesthood of all believers and soul freedom. Five Stars!!
