Women, Leadership, and the Bible
How Do I Know What to Believe? A Practical Guide to Biblical Interpretation
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Engaging, eminently helpful, and completely accessible. Most delightful 'how-to' book you'll ever read. Natalie's brilliant five steps empower women (and men!) to bring the Scriptures alive in the power of the Holy Spirit. She reminds us of the great chef Emeril Lagasse. She passionately takes us into the kitchen of God's word and teaches us to feed the people of God the real food of God. We can almost hear Natalie, like Emeril, shouting, 'BAM!'"
--Erilynne Barnum, founder of call2disciple ministries and Anglican deacon, and Thaddeus Barnum, Anglican bishop and author of Real Identity
"I have heard women tell me their one life wish is to study the Scriptures. I am delighted to be able to say they finally can, without going to seminary. Natalie Eastman dignifies women's minds with her careful steps for understanding the Bible. You will finish prepared to face those 'problem passages' not just about women's roles but about everything. Natalie Eastman is an ideal guide because she refuses to tell you what to think; instead, she delivers the tools that all teachers of the Bible use to unlock meaning and application."
--Jonalyn Fincher, author of Ruby Slippers, Vice President of Soulation.org
"In a Christian world, where all too frequently women are discouraged from the serious study of biblical and theological issues, this slender volume provides encouragement for the use of discernment. It provides practical encouragement for women to be fully engaged in the educational life of their churches, and to exercise their gifts."
--Robert Norris, Senior Pastor, The Fourth Presbyterian Church
