“Women who follow Jesus are passionate and dynamic, forging ahead and unafraid of putting their faith into practice. In their every walk of life, they are God’s agents of change.”
We live in a scary world, torn apart by them-and-us thinking and threatened by disease, violence and environmental destruction. How does God shape women to be pro-active in society as Christian disciples, equipping them to build community and change the world around them?
Jesus calls men and women alike to be ambassadors of God’s kingdom in society. What kind of spiritual journey can strengthen them to rise to this challenge, engage in the public arena and thrive as the strong, significant players in mission that God calls them to be? This is the question that lies at the heart of this book.
Reflecting on the parable of the yeast and weaving together the stories of women from the Bible with those of Christian history, the author reflects on the experiences of women such as Alice Domon and St. Perpetua, Sojourner Truth and Amy Carmichael. She offers inspiration and encouragement to all women of today who seek to become passionate followers of Christ, faithful to the values of God’s kingdom in every aspect of their daily lives.
