Women, Church, and Leadership: New Paradigms
Essays in Honor of Jean Miller Schmidt
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This is a book befitting the pioneering scholar and leader it honors. These essays advance the essential conversations required for contemporary church leadership with scholarly integrity and pastoral sensitivity."

"In anxious and disorienting times, these essays provide refreshing and bold paradigms for the future leadership of the church. As befits the honoring of Jean Miller Schmidt, this is a clarion call that pulls us deeply into the leadership of God, that honors the fruit of our heritage, that focuses on the edifying experience of women and others whose witness has been marginalized as a way to the future. This volume is filled with grace, confidence, and vibrant hope."
--Rev. Dr. Mark A. Fowler

"This volume is a welcome and much-needed addition to our discussion of church leadership, which is too often dominated by a single perspective. Eunjoo Mary Kim and Deborah Beth Creamer have collected a rich variety of voices who examine new experiences and paths of leadership, yet at the same time keep us grounded in faith and tradition. This book will be widely used and discussed in classrooms, churches, and denominational offices."
