Overview

Asian Christian female servant-leaders have faced painful and humbling experiences in their leadership development – at every turn and at every corner. Asian women who are evangelical servant-leaders rarely have any real “voice” in their community. In this book, Rachel Rajagopal enrols ten servant-leaders who, speaking as one, seek to have their collective voice heard, recognized and valued. The testimonies of these women’s encounters with the Lord Jesus Christ and their personal obedience to God’s call, despite their challenges as female ministry leaders, are powerful examples of God using women in his sovereign plan. Many of the hindrances these servant-leaders encountered were simply because God made them women. Dr Rajagopal’s rigorous examination of the Asian social, cultural and theological context in relation to women in Christian leadership allows these stories to jump off the pages and into readers’ hearts. This thorough study not only illuminates the Asian context but is eminently transferable to other parts of the world in pursuit of releasing women into their gifting from God.
