Transforming the Struggles of Tamars
Single Women and Baptistic Communities
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"This is a great book on a number of levels, and Andronovienė's warnings to the churches about the 'male-female imbalance' in the pews is as relevant here in the United States as it is in her native Lithuania."
--Nancey Murphy, author of Bodies and Souls? Or Spirited Bodies?
"Andronovienė has addressed the issues of singleness in evangelical communities. From pulpits we hear facile language about the church family, which excludes many in the church who are not within the nuclear family and feel alienated by the rhetoric of church leaders. This book offers profound observations on issues such as 'happiness' within the believing community and deserves to be read and acted upon in every church."
--Keith G. Jones, International Baptist Theological Seminary (IBTS), Czech Republic
"This is an essential study for all those concerned with issues of human sexuality and the making and sustaining of personal relationships."
--Paul S. Fiddes, University of Oxford, UK
"At a time of unprecedented social and cultural change, we urgently need intelligent and informed commentary on the realities of the single life. Lina Andronovienė's book offers a bold and constructive new theology for Christian communities today."
--Elaine Graham, Chester University, UK
"Deeply learned, this wide-ranging book explores a critical issue in the life of the church which has long been neglected. . . . I commend this richly textured work as a fine resource for scholar-practitioners who seek a more expansive understanding of the human condition."
--Molly T. Marshall, Central Baptist Theological Seminary, Kansas
