The managing editor of Christianity Today and founder of the popular Her.meneutics blog encourages women to find joy in vocation in this game-changing look at the importance of women and work.
Women today inhabit and excel in every profession, yet many Christian women wonder about the value of work outside the home. And in circles where the traditional family model is highly regarded, many working women who sense a call to work find little church or peer support.
In A Womans Place, Katelyn Beaty, print managing editor of Christianity Today and cofounder of Her.meneutics, insists its time to reconsider womens work. She challenges us to explore new ways to live out the Scriptural call to rule over creationin the office, the home, in ministry, and beyond.
Starting with the Bibles approach to workincluding the creation story, the Proverbs 31 woman, and New Testament modelsBeaty shows how womens roles in Western society have changed; how the work-home divide came to exist; and how the Bible offers models of women in leadership. Readers will be inspired by stories of women effecting dynamic cultural change, leading institutions, and living out grand and beautiful vocations.
Far from insisting that women must work outside the home, Beaty urges all believers into a better framework for imagining career, ambition, and calling. Whether caring for children, running a home, business, or working full-time, all readers will be inspired to live in a way that glorifies God.
Sure to spark discussion, A Womans Place is a game-changing look at the importance of work for women and men alike.
