Presenting Half the Church by Carolyn Custis James

Categories Ministry

This month, Zondervan is publishing what we think is an incredibly important book—Half the Church by Carolyn Custis James. Put simply, you might think of the book as a Christian response to—or a wrestling with the issues raised in—the bestselling and influential book Half the Sky.

Sheryl WuDunn, coauthor of Half the Sky, had this to say about the book:

"Carolyn Custis James has written an unusual and compelling book, mixing her personal story with the dramatic changes in today's world and her thoughtful interpretations of the Scriptures and how women can respond with greater fervor to the Bible's call for change and betterment of the world."

Christopher J. H. Wright praised Half the Church, saying:

“Carolyn Custis James combines passion for the suffering women of our world with rigorous biblical observation and exegesis. The result is a prophetic word that challenges both our apathy and ignorance in the face of terrifying facts, and our theological shallowness in the face of abundant biblical teaching. The title and subtitle only tell half the story. For this is a book for the whole church and urges us to see God's global vision for men and women. Half the church badly needs to think again about the message of this book. So does the other half. Otherwise both halves are the tragic losers.”

Next week we are excited to be joining with numerous bloggers in a blog tour for Half the Church. Stay tuned for more info!
