First of all let’s get this out in the open ... this is NOT a book saying women should be preaching from every pulpit. That is not the mission Roese is going for. Instead the focus is on her story alone. After all not all women are created the same. Jackie describes women in colors. Throughout evangelical history the church expects women to be "light pink". And she writes, "we need light pink ladies who remind us that God is peace and beauty. But we also need every color, every shade of color and colors we haven't even seen --yet-- to remind us of everything else God is". In her own description she has never been pink and no matter how hard she tried she couldn't become pink. And even if she could ... wouldn't that be denying who God created her to be? Her story is inspiring and heart-tugging. She's a brave woman. It's important to point out for those skeptics that her fight has never been for the "right" to preach. Her fight has been to end injustice and inequality for women - that transcends the globe. She talks many times about paving a new path for girls like her own daughter, Madison. "Before walking up to the stage, I turned to my daughter to let her know that just like Jill (Briscoe) had chopped a few vines, so too was I about to chop a few to forge a path for her generation. She knew I meant something beyond a woman preaching from the pulpit. Madison knew I believed God was moving - globally - to address the gender injustice of women. Whether it was covert gender injustice like what goes on in the American church, or overt gender injustice like what we see in sex trafficking or in female genital mutilation, or the myriad other forms of female oppression, God was calling out what happens to his women and girls around the world." So if that entices you, confuses you or ticks you off go check out Dr. Jackie Roese' book Lime Green. It is a fascinating read that is easy and enlightening. The world is changing. Everywhere. We need to “test all things” for sure, but we also need to be unafraid to change. God warns us about fear. We need more women like Jackie to step on that fear, uncloak it and shine some Light of Jesus on it. We might be surprised what we find. Thank you to Jackie Roese and Icon Media Group for the opportunity to review this book. I received a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion
