Westminster Handbook to Women in American Religious History by Susan Hill Lindley

Book Description

During the past four decades, large numbers of women have entered ordained leadership positions in American religious bodies, resulting in changes in aspects of church life from liturgy and theology to pastoral leadership. At the same time, an explosion of scholarship about women in American religious history has demonstrated that women have always played important roles in shaping and even leading American religious institutions. This is so despite their lack of access to formal ordination, and even though their roles were often undervalued by contemporaries and neglected by historians. The Westminster Handbook to Women in American Religious History provides students, teachers, pastors, and scholars with an accessible reference to more than 750 outstanding individual women and women's organizations.

You Have Stept Out of Your Place by Susan Hill Lindley You Have Stept Out of Your Place, Paperback (December 1999)

Susan Hill Lindley presents the story of women and religion in America from the colonial period through the mid-1990s. She demonstrates that just as religion in the traditional sense has influenced the lives of American women, so have the women themselves had a significant effect on the shape of American religion through the years.
