Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women
Bestselling author Elyse Fitzpatrick and pastor Eric Schumacher argue convincingly that the Bible asserts and celebrates the value of women from Genesis to Revelation. Worthy--a book for women and for men--will transform how you see women in every facet of life.
"In a world where womanhood is simultaneously worshiped and despised, Elyse and Eric explain a woman's worth, straight from Scripture. With chapters filled with compassion and hard questions, they challenge readers to develop a robust view of women in redemptive history."--EMILY JENSEN and LAURA WIFLER, coauthors of Risen Motherhood: Gospel Hope for Everyday Moments
"This book, authored by two respected and wise Christian leaders, can help the church celebrate the gifting and calling of women within the Body of Christ. As you read this book, pray that God would show you how best to respect and uplift the women and girls in your church and community."--RUSSELL MOORE, president, the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
"With candor and wisdom, Elyse and Eric shine a light into the biblical text, showing the ways God has cared for and worked through women to bring about his purposes in the world. Then they shine a light into the church, addressing the significant questions women have about how God cares for and intends to work through them today."--NANCY GUTHRIE, author of Even Better Than Eden: Nine Ways the Bible's Story Changes Everything about Your Story
