As long as there have been Baptists in America, there have been female Baptist ministers and preachers. Unfortunately, some Baptist denominations have not always been kind to them. Due to theological debate, often the existence of these female ministers has been ignored, and their words have not been recorded. This book of sermons seeks to record the words, insights, and experiences of several women ministers and preachers so as not to become part of the lost generations of women who have gone before them. Even when the denomination and some churches have looked unfavorably on women preachers and ministers, God has consistently called their daughters to ministry and service. It is hoped that others can be inspired by the wisdom and creativity of these women, and be challenged by fresh perspectives on biblical texts. The women who contributed sermons to this book represent a wide variety of ministerial roles and vocations. Among the writers are denominational leaders such as Carolyn Weatherford Crumpler (former executive director of Woman's Missionary Union and former moderator of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship), Pam Durso (executive director of Baptist Women in Ministry), and Colleen Burroughs (executive VP of Passport Camps, Inc.). College and seminary professors include Helen Lee Turner (Furman University), Libby Bellinger (Baylor University) and Tracy Hartman (Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond). Pastors include Mimi Walker (Druid Hills Baptist Church, Atlanta, Georgia) and Sarah Jackson Shelton (Baptist Church of the Covenant, Birmingham, Alabama). This book is practical in its arrangement for classroom use or group readings.
