My new book, The Silent Queen: Why the Church Needs Women to Find their Voice, comes out today!
In The Silent Queen, I reveal God’s original plan for men and women to rule and reign in partnership. I show how God’s partnership plan runs like a golden thread throughout the tapestry of scripture, and I address those scriptures that have been misused to sabotage that plan.
Women have been told they are subordinate and men have been told they must rule alone, but that’s not what our Father said. In this book, I tackle the tough questions undermine our marriages, families, and churches:
- Should women stay silent in church?
- Can women teach, preach and pastor?
- What did Jesus think about women in leadership?
- Are wives helpmates?
- Should women submit to male leaders?
- Should wives submit to bad husbands?
- Are women more easily deceived?
- Is infidelity the only excuse for divorce?
- And much more!
I’ve been working on this book for two years and I can’t wait to share it with you. Here is some of the feedback I have received so far:
“You better repent of your false teaching!”
“It’s clear from scripture that women can’t lead.”
“You are very wrong. Your writing is dangerous, brother.”
Apparently this is a dangerous book!
Full disclosure: this book challenges traditional (i.e., unbiblical) ideas we have about women and their place in the world. It draws a line between what God said and what man made up.
One of my favorite comments came from a (male) beta reader: “This book removed blinders I did not know I was wearing.” That is my story too. I did not know I had blind spots until God revealed them to me.
For the first time ever, I am releasing a new book in three formats:
Grab a copy of The Silent Queen for yourself and another for your pastor, mother, sister, daughter, son, and anyone else with a story or song to share.
Happy Christmas, and happy reading!
