Overview

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase, "women in ministry?" A. Nursery-worker, B. Children's leader, C. Pastor, D. It's complicated… If you are like most, your answer would be, "It's complicated." Many believers are still confused about the proper place for women in the Church. Powerful and Free is a call to address the structural message of inequality. It is not a theological treatise on the biblical case for female leaders (there are many excellent resources for this already). It is not a political program to implement some kind of affirmative action in our leadership teams, because that doesn't work. Rather, it is an appeal to the hearts of men and women to recognize the existence of the glass ceiling for women and to challenge themselves to align more fully with a Kingdom vision for gender-blind leadership in the Body and equal male-female partnership in the home.

Meet the Author

Danny and Sheri Silk serve on the Senior Management Team at Bethel Church in

Redding, California. Danny directs the Global Transformation Institute—a leadership

development team—oversees Bethel’s staff development, and together with Sheri, is the cofounder

Loving On Purpose Educational Services, an international ministry dedicated to

communities and families.

Danny’s life mission is to strengthen inter-personal relationships within the Church

Body. His vision is to build and sustain a culture of honor by challenging traditional paradigms

that subjugate disempowered subcultures such as those who have made mistakes, those held

to a “sinful” past, women, and children. These subjects are discussed from a “heart-focused”

perspective rather than a theologically-based study in his previous two books: Loving our

Kids on Purpose, 2008 (Amazon rank 8,201 in books on 10/26/12), and Culture of Honor,

2009 (Amazon rank 7,968 in books on 10/26/12), and explored further in Powerful and Free:

Confronting the Glass Ceiling for Women in the Church, which will be released by Red Arrow

in December, 2012.

I bought this book when I was at Bethel recently and thought 'great, this will affirm me' as I am very pro women in leadership in The Church. Little did I know that I have been complicit to upholding the patriarchal paradigm in the way I do life and how I view my calling. This book has been, and is, the most important book I have ever read. I bought it to enable me to release women into their destinies and I am finding that it's releasing me into mine. I can't recommend it highly enough, it's one of those books that I am going to buy for people, lot's of people, as this message of liberation needs to be heard.
