They were preachers, pastors, and evangelists; reformers, missionaries, and Christian educators some sixty years before women were allowed to occupy those positions in most mainline Protestant denominations. Debra Hull's sweeping narration of the legacy of Disciples of Christ foremothers is powerful and informative. The women whose lives and work are celebrated here inspire with their courage and point the way for women today to carry on their own vital leadership roles. Each chapter closes with a helpful practical focus on "opportunities to respond."
