Be your true self—and get ready for a dynamic friendship with the Divine. It’s time for women of faith to quit apologizing—for who they are or who they’ve been, for what they feel and know, and for their powerful ability to connect with spiritual reality. When a woman is free to be herself and to express to God—without fear—her loves, dreams, pains, and passions, she can embark upon a friendship that is stunning in its wisdom and delightful in its daily unfolding. Using Scripture, meditations, stories, and written exercises, Days of Deepening Friendship encourages women to radically rethink their approach to friendship with God and to explore the deeper regions of this very special relationship. Throughout forty brief chapters, author and spirituality-workshop leader Vinita Hampton Wright taps the proven wisdom of Ignatian spirituality by employing prayer, imagination, action, and reflection, making the book an ideal spiritual workshop for women. Days of Deepening Friendship will free any woman to fling wide open the door to the Divine and become friends with the God who has loved her all along for who she really is.

Willhauck has heard the church say to women: "Don't give me any Back Talk!" Too often, she contends, women have been told what to do in order to get ahead. In Back Talk!, Willhauck will use this admonishing term in a positive way to help the church change for the better. She effectively discusses gender issues in leadership - recent changes as well as current changes - and identifies key areas in which change is needed and how women leaders have made changes. In particular, the book examines the growing leadership of ethnic women in the church, especially Korean, Latino, and African American women, and also shows how feminist, womanist, liberation, and Asian theologies serve as a resource for analyzing data concerning change.
