Two Millennia of Memorable Christian Women : Showing Strength Without Power Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


For over 2,000 years, Christian women have struggled with inequities between the genders. This certainly has been true in matters religious. Christian women have shown ethical, moral and spiritual strength, while being deprived of leadership or power positions reserved for their male counterparts. In this tome, the authors celebrate a wide variety of such female heroines, drawn from early Christian, Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Pentecostal and Charismatic groups, as well as a sprinkling of so-called "heretical" individuals. These women often have become saints, martyrs, visionaries, missionaries, and spiritual voices-models to all generations. At the same time, it must be remembered that many of them also carried and gave birth to children, raised them, and fulfilled the other functions required of them in their social contexts. The emphasis is on celebrating these memorable individuals.
