Simply put: I just read the most theologically challenging book: Men and Women in the Church by author Dr. Sarah Sumner. By far, the most important book I’ve read in a long time (except the Bible, to me there is absolutely nothing better than God’s Word ever).
I read this as a textbook. It wasn’t a walk in the park mentally. I wrestled through it and with it. I was faced with questions I wasn’t ready for, and some of them quiet honestly I was scared of the answers. I was given a mirror at times and saw within my heart some deep prejudices that I did not even know I had. At many points throughout the text I was deeply convicted.
Here are two quotes from people who have praised this book:
Dallas Willard, Professor of Philosophy, University of Southern California, and author of The Divine Conspiracy
“This book is a tribute to Sarah Sumner’s academic devotion and puts to good use her theological training. Her analysis is fresh and much on the mark. Helga and I are praying that her ministry will have a great and holy impact.”
Carl F. H. Henry, Founding Editor of Christianity Today, and author of the 6-Volume God, Revelation and Authority
