This book features a number of autobiographical accounts as to how various persons have come to change their minds about women in leadership. Well-known evangelical leaders - individuals and couples, males and females, from a broad range of denominational affiliations and ethnic diversity - share their surprising journeys from a more-or-less restrictive view to an open inclusive view that recognizes a full shared partnership of leadership in the home and in the ministries of the church based on gifts, not gender.
This book offers a positive vision for the future of women and men together as partners of equal worth without competitiveness in the work of equipping this and the next generation of Christian disciples for "the work of ministry" and service in the Kingdom of God.

Production decisions could have made it better
I would recommend the book to a person who is just beginning to explore what the Bible teaches on the role of women in the church or a person who is open to learning more about interpreting the Bible. It may or may not be encouraging to women who are in ministry.
Favorite chapter title: "The Gospel does not change but our perception of it may need revision."
Not all the authors are "household names." It would have been very helpful if the brief bios that appear at the beginning of each chapter of the print version had been included in the narration. It also would have improved the narration if the chapters or sections written by women had been read by a female narrator and those by men by a male narrator. This would have added in particular to the chapters written by spouses.
