As I mentioned last week (Are we silencing half the church?), we’ll be spending some time in the next few weeks reviewing and discussing Carolyn Curtis James new book Half the Church: Recapturing God’s Vision for Women.
And, thanks to Zondervan, we have a copy of the book to give away (see instructions below).
According to the publisher’s description:
Women comprise at least half the world, and usually more than half the church, but so often Christian teaching to women either fails to move beyond a discussion of roles or assumes a particular economic situation or stage of life. This all but shuts women out from contributing to God’s kingdom as they were designed to do. Furthermore, the plight of women in the Majority World demands a Christian response, a holistic embrace of all that God calls women and men to be in his world.
And, here’s the promo video for the book.
We’re going to try something a little different with this giveaway. If you’d like to win the book, here are the various ways that you can enter the contest:
- Leave a comment below indicating that you’d like to win the book. You can only enter once this way, but I’ll count it as two entries if you also offer your answer to the following question: How do you think your church is doing at encouraging all women to be actively and fully engaged in the life and ministry of the church?
- Blog about the giveaway and link to this post.
- Tweet about the contest using the hashtag #western_thm. (One entry per tweet; enter as many times as you want.)
- Mention the giveaway on Facebook and tag “Marc Cortez” in your comment.(One entry per comment; enter as many times as you want.)
I’ll randomly pick a winner when we post the reviews of the book in April.
