Why Complementarianism Is Crucial to Discipleship

By Jonathan Leeman | 9Marks Journal: Pastoring Women | 07.01.2010

Resources for Today's Biblical Women

Book Review: Radical Womanhood, by Carolyn McCulley

Review by Kristin Jamieson | 9Marks Journal: Pastoring Women | 06.25.2010

womanly dominion

Book Review: Womanly Dominion: More Than a Gentle and Quiet Spirit

Review by Owen Strachan | 9Marks Journal: Pastoring Women | 06.25.2010

Miscellaneous Book Reviews

shepherd leader

Book Review: The Shepherd Leader: Achieving Effective Shepherding in Your Church, by Timothy Witmer

Review by Phil Newton | 9Marks Journal: Pastoring Women | 06.25.2010

I found this book so helpful that I’m asking all of our elders and pastoral interns to read it.

the color of church

Book Review: The Color of Church: A Biblical and Practical Paradigm for Multiracial Churches, by Rodney M. Woo
