TGC Reviews Half the Church

Categories Ministry

Half the church The Gospel Coalition blog recently reviewed Carolyn Custis James' book Half the Church.

In the discussion that followed, Carolyn added her thoughts in the comments.

You can read the begining of the review and below, and find the rest here. (make sure to check out Carolyn's response!)

"It is no secret that women outnumber men in most church settings. Nor is it a secret that women across the world suffer unspeakable pain and injustice with no real way of escape. Both of these realities led Carolyn Custis James to write the book Half the Church: Recapturing God’s Global Vision for Women

James writes to expose the suffering of women worldwide and to call Christian women to action. She believes women in the American church are not fully realizing God’s call to them, and as a result are not at the forefront of helping women throughout the world who are suffering and oppressed.
