Christmas Day Book Release: Three Zondervan E-Books on Women in Ministry

Christmas Day Book Release: Three Zondervan E-Books on Women in Ministry December 20, 2012

On Christmas Day and Boxing Day, Zondervan will release three ebooks about women and ministry from their series Fresh Perspectives on Women in Ministry. All for just $2.99.

If all your family brought you for Christmas was a pair of dish washing gloves, a left behind novel, and some cigarette flavored ice-cream, then make up for it by buying yourself one of these books:

Bourgeois Babes, Bossy Wives, and Bobby Hair Cuts: A Case for Gender Equality in Ministry
Michael F. Bird (Christmas Day)

Bourgeois Babes, Bossy Wives, and Bobby Haircuts, an original digital short by author Michael Bird, offers an engaging, incisive perspective on biblical gender equality and the egalitarian view—a preference for allowing women to hold teaching and leadership positions in ministry.


Hearing Her Voice: A Case for Women Giving Sermons
John Dickson (Boxing Day)

This original digital short by scholar and cultural commentator John Dickson presents an entirely new and convincing biblical argument for allowing women to preach freely in churches.


Then finally, to round up the series, Katherine Keller (wife of Tim Keller) has her own book on a similar topic:

Jesus, Justice and Gender Roles: A Case for Gender Roles in Ministry
Katherine Keller (Boxing Day)

This original digital short by author Kathy Keller, co-founder of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, offers a personal and challenging perspective on biblical gender roles and the complementarian view—a preference for reserving certain leadership positions in ministry for men.

What Are Your Thoughts?leave a comment
  • I plan on grabbing all three. Although I’m interested in yours, let’s be honest, I’m really curious to read Kathy Keller’s.

  • John Dickson

    That’s right, no one likes the guy in the middle!

  • yvonne

    I have a Bobby haircut. Great new take on an old title!

  • Dirk

    Thanks Dr Mike (if I may). I’m really looking forward to Mrs Keller’s book. But I have to be honest, I’m saddened by your drifting away from complementarianism and your embrace of feminism.

  • Please could you tell us who the wives of Michael Bird and John Dixon are?

  • Mike Bull

    This is terrible news. I just read Doug Wilson’s, “Why Ministers Must Be Men.” By “men,” he doesn’t mean simply “male.” Men will only follow men. Denominations with female clergy inevitably decline, usually via the approval of practising gay clergy. Perhaps this is because both of these distortions ignore the obvious norms of Scripture in the same way. If a woman can represent the bridegroom to the congregation, anything goes when it comes to the next generation, despite our best intentions.

    • Arthur, excellent, thank Tamie for a thoughtful and fair review.
