This book is absolutely amazing!!! It not only speaks to women in ministry, but it also speaks to the body of Christ as a whole. This book reveals the truth about ministry, finding your calling, waiting on and trusting God, pulpit etiquette and so much more! My favorite chapters in this book is "Holywood," "Waiting is Gain", and "Healing for the Spirit, Soul and Body." I am a 25 year old woman and I am NOT a lady preacher nor am I in ministry, but this book STILL ministered to me. It has completely changed the way I view life and it has shown me the importance of trusting God for my future. The chapter, "Waiting is Gain," ministered to me in a way I can't even explain. I read this book in two days and I'm reading it over again! It is a must read!!!!!!!

Lady Preacher by Brenda Carradine is about women preachers who are called to preach about God. The book speaks about how initially this post is accepted with a lot of reluctance due to doubts of being able to be eligible and qualified to preach. This book can be seen as a starter for women who want to get into it. These are people chosen by God to spread the message and it is a call of the divine. The book also tells you how to manage your life as a preacher, mother, wife, and daughter. The book tells you that by choosing this post, you move closer to God.
I found the book profound and intensely focused. Not many of us get the divine calling and so it is a very enriching book for all women. The book is a guide also for many women working in the ministry. The author throws light on the various areas of the ministry which people do not know about. The author’s experiences, ideologies, and observations are all valuable to the reader.
Lady Preacher can be used as a guide for everyone who believes in the power of God. The lessons are not complicated or difficult. The messages are simple and anyone can understand what the author wants to convey. God’s grace, compassion, and love for all is discussed in detail here and the duties of those in the ministry are very clearly described in the book.

Lady Preacher is a source of truth and a picture of reality that Women in Ministry face and are challenged to change about ourselves. This book has truly been a blessing to me and has helped me to seek and trust God more for His leading in my life. The chapters that spoke to me most was "Wating is Gain, and The Cloning Effect!" God has a dynamic way, His way of showing us who we are, delivers us from what cannot go to the next level, and shows us that the gifts He has given us are to Glorify him, and to walk in that gifting which He gave to us. Go out and order Lady Preacher as it will truly bless and help you!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I have read many Christian books where the Author starts out strong speaking a FRESH, Life Changing word and then toward the end of the book, things begin to repeat itself. Well in Lady Preacher you won't get the same thing over and over. Every paragraph, every chapter has something new, refreshing, exciting, and giving you that anxiousness of wanting more and more. This book doesn't "sugar coat" the issues women face in ministry and personally, but it speaks boldly in such a way that had me saying "Girl, you can do it" "You are somebody" "You will have a great future." One of my favorite chapters was Healing for the Spirit, Soul, and Body. It ministered to me like none other. Co-Pastor Carradine addressed quieting the spirit within, getting away, journaling. Oh how this Blessed my Soul!!! So many times we as people (women) are the do all, be all and never really take time to hear from God due to trying to hear everyone else. She so eloquently allows the reader to begin truly seeking to bring balance and order in their life, but at the same time being able to experience fun and laughter. From the beginning to the end, Lady Preacher will have you encouraged and inspired, ultimately setting you up for great VICTORY in your life!Was this review helpful?

Rarely do I find a gem in Christian literature that does not repeat the same old cliches, or patronize us into thinking that the walk of a Woman of God is easy. Finally this breath of fresh air has arrived! Brenda Carradine speaks frankly, matter of factly, and truthfully about the plights of being a woman that carries the word of God. I am not an ordained minister or seeking to operate in that call, but as a lay woman I find that God uses me to minister his word person to person. Mrs. Carradine gets right to the heart of the matter, as a woman . The chapter about cloning changed my way of thinking!!! I realized that I could no longer try to do what I have seen my minister sisters and friends do, but I must allow God to use me in all of my uniqueness, which starts by loving the me that HE created. Get this book, it is worth every dime, and you will refer to the wisdom again and again!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
