Much has been written to counter the idea that women should assume leadership roles, whether in the church, home, or workplace. Little, however, has been written to show how, in avoiding leadership, women might be abnegating their God-ordained role as coleaders with men. Women who want to know that they are walking in the fullness of God’s will for their lives will need to answer this question for themselves: is it a sin for women to lead?
In Head of the House, Merelyn Webber addresses the question: is it a sin for women to lead? She contends that the issue of equal opportunity for women and men to rule needs to be examined soberly by all and not swept under the carpet. Derived from her personal relationship with Jesus, her years of experience of marginalization in ministry within the church setting, her years of study toward her MDiv and her call to ministry, Merelyn offers a Biblical perspective of women in ministry.
Head of the House is a book about women. It is to women and for women. It is designed to help them understand for themselves what God and his word have to say about what he intends their roles in society to be.
