What does the Bible say about the value of women? Does the Bible teach that women are as valuable as men, or does it portray them as somehow more flawed, more suspect, or weak and easily deceived? Beginning from Genesis and working all the way through the story line of the Bible, Worthy demonstrates the significant and yes, even surprising, ways that God has used women to accomplish His kingdom goals. Like men, they are created in His image, and their lives reflect and declare His worth. Worthy will enable and encourage both men and women to embrace this true and lofty vision of God’s creation, plan, and their value in His eyes. Bestselling author Elyse Fitzpatrick and pastor Eric Schumacher together invite women to embrace a transformative and empowering view of their Maker, themselves, and the church. But this isn’t only a book for women. It is also a book for men, especially leaders, who want to grow in their understanding of God’s perspective on women, people who normally make up the majority of their congregations. Men might be wondering if they’ve missed something amid the abuse scandals that are rocking the church. Might the headlines they’re reading today about abuse have their roots in a denigration of the value and worth of women? Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women will help every listener see the value, place, and calling of women through study questions and a “Digging Deeper” section that will help men and women discover how to cherish, value, and honor one another for God’s glory.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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
“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
