No Little Women

Equipping All Women in the Household of God

Why are so many well-intentioned women falling for poor―even false―theology? The Devil has been effectively targeting women from the beginning, so why are they often left to fend for themselves in so-called women’s ministries?

Strengthening women in the church strengthens the whole church. Cultivating resolved, competent women equips them to fulfill their calling as Christ’s disciples and men’s essential allies.

Writing to concerned women and church officers, Aimee Byrd pinpoints the problem, especially the commodification of women’s ministry. Aimee answers the hot-button issues―How can women grow in discernment? How should pastors preach to women? What are our roles within the church?―and points us in the direction of a multifaceted solution.

“Unfortunately, many of the answers offered to women today about their place in the church are the result of asking the wrong questions. Fortunately, Aimee Byrd is asking the right questions–tough questions, to be sure, but questions that are much needed and long overdue. No Little Women steers the discussion about women and the church back to its rightful place by uniting a high view of scripture and a high view of women.

“Aimee Byrd fearlessly takes on a range of problems that are not often addressed in the same work—women’s ministries and women themselves who lack proper theological training; pastors who neglect the training and the gifts of the women who could be deployed in the kingdom to great effect; and the hyper-complementarianism that is itself bad theology. May all those who need to hear her message give it heed.”
