Canadian Baptist Women
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This volume of inspiring and sometimes startling essays contributes to the ongoing task of expanding and deepening the historical portrait of the Canadian religious experience. Dr. Bowler and her authors trouble the waters of male-dominated institutions and narratives as they introduce us to robust and faithful women who crossed multiple boundaries to help shape the church and the many contexts in which they lived, thought, prayed, and worked."
--Sandra Beardsall, Professor of Church History and Ecumenics, St. Andrew's College, Saskatoon
"This collection of stories of Canadian Baptist women inspires. The recapturing of women's lives, previously lost to historical memory, brings depth and breadth to our understandings both of Baptist denominational history and of the broader history of the church in Canada. Readers will be captivated by these women who challenged gendered norms as they confronted institutional boundaries and crossed ethnic and geographic lines."
--Lucille Marr, Adjunct Professor, McGill University, School of Religious Studies; President, Canadian Society of Church History
"The long-neglected contribution of women to Canada's Baptist movement is addressed in this eclectic collection of essays. As editor Bowler explains, the volume is neither exhaustive nor encyclopedic, yet it contributes substantially to rectifying this glaring gap. As a seminary educator, I am thankful for the mass of useful information this volume provides as I rewrite some courses."
--C. Mark Steinacher, Assistant Professor of Christian History, Tyndale Seminary
