About the Book

Brave Women of the Early Church is about the setting of the early church and the opposition that women as home church leaders would have faced and had to overcome. I explore seven brave women, from Mary Magdalene who worked with Jesus to others who started churches and worked with Paul. I compare the courageous actions of these women to ways that women today can be a powerful influence for transformaiton in culture and Christian life.

About the Author

I am a midwife, mother, and George W. Truett Seminary graduate. During my seminary training, I came to see that these brave 1st century women were instrumental in hiding the church and sending it into the Christian era. These brave women not only inspired me, but reminded me of the women I had helped during pregnancy and birth. The endurance and fortitude of these church founders would advance the message of salvation through Christ. Their courage enabled the missionary efforts of the Apostle Paul.
