The reality of a stained glass ceiling is familiar to most women called to the pastorate. Despite being more likely to be seminary educated, female clergy constitute less than 10 percent of Protestant leading pastorates—and those who do hold such pastorates are generally paid less than their male counterparts. In light of such statistics, Pastor Chris Smith explores how to overcome the challenges in breaking through the stained glass ceiling—and she goes a step further. She shares the lessons learned and best practices of the success stories—those women who are currently serving in solo or senior pastorates. Based on a national survey of female clergy, this volume is rich in insights based on data as well as personal anecdotes—insights that will empower not only women called to the pastorate but their male colleagues and denominational leaders who want to support them.

Meet the ministers and laypeople driving foundational Christian theological change and restoring awareness of the sacred value of women and girls. “The Bible teaches that we are made in the image and likeness of God; therefore, I must believe that there is a male and female expression of God…. Claim your divinity and walk in it every day, because you are fearfully and wonderfully made.” —Rev. Dr. Susan Newman, “Claiming Our Divinity” In a world filled with injustice and violence, we long for a new sacred symbolism to inspire transformation. Our yearning includes a widespread hunger for visions of the Female Divine in church life and worship to restore gender-balance and finally achieve just, equal and inclusive faith communities. This collection of engrossing narratives of women and men trying to change the institutional church—and society—illuminates how reclaiming multicultural female images of God extends beyond the sanctuary and into the community. Whether you’re searching for your own place in the church or you want to explore this growing movement, these fascinating pioneers invite you to join the adventure of creating rituals that include Her, affirming the sacred value of all people and all creation.

Gender Inequality in Our Changing World: A Comparative Approach focuses on the contemporary United States but places it in historical and global context. Written for sociology of gender courses, this textbook identifies conditions that encourage greater or lesser gender inequality, explains how gender and gender inequality change over time, and explores how gender intersects with other hierarchies, especially those related to race, social class, and sexual identity. The authors integrate historical and international materials as they help students think both theoretically and empirically about the causes and consequences of gender inequality, both in their own lives and in the lives of others worldwide.

Nearly all pastors sent to rural congregations were nurtured in larger urban congregations, and nearly always educated in urbanized seminaries. A wide culture gap between leaders and members often emerges among the church leaders in rural congregations. This book is designed to address and study the issues that arise when ordained and lay pastors are called or appointed to rural congregations. This handbook will orient seminary students and pastors who are doing ministry in rural congregations. It focuses on the nature of congregational life in such a setting, showing ways to deal with the issues and challenges specific to rural culture. The authors tell how to best engage in evangelism and mission in the particular locations in which these congregations find themselves. Rural Congregational Studies: A Guide for Good Shepherds outlines features of different rural settings that affect life and church life. Each chapter contains a section of "resources" (sidebars, ideas, programs, and so forth) that tie it to the chapter theme.

Emily Brontë: Sturmhöhe (Wuthering Heights) • Entspricht rund 400 Buchseiten • Neu editiert, mit aktualisierter Rechtschreibung, ohne den Charakter des Textes zu verfälschen • Voll verlinkt, und mit zusätzlichem Hypertext- Inhaltsverzeichnis • Mit einem Stammbaum der Earnshaws und Lintons, sowie einer Timeline mit den Lebensdaten der Hauptpersonen – angefertigt vom britischen Brontë-Experten Paul Thompson »Sturmhöhe« gehört zu den großen epischen Familienerzählungen, und ist in eine Reihe mit »Vom Winde verweht« oder »Doktor Schiwago« zu stellen. Die Geschichte ist so bewegend, weil sie – wie jeder dieser großen Romane – archaische menschliche Gefühle zur Triebfeder macht: Liebe, Hass, Schmerz, Sehnsucht, Ehrgeiz, Stolz. – In »Dr. Schiwago« ist es die Liebe, in »Vom Winde verweht«, sind es Sehnsucht und Stolz, doch in »Sturmhöhe« ist es das zerstörerischste aller Gefühle, der Hass. Shakespeare ́sche Züge, sagten Kritiker, habe der Roman, andere fühlen sich an die griechische Tragödie erinnert. In jedem Fall ist es ein ganz großer Wurf, der der jungen Emily Brontë (1818–1848), der literarisch bedeutsamsten der drei hochbegabten Brontë-Schwestern, hier gelang. ---- eClassica – Die Buchreihe, die Klassiker neu belebt.
