"A Church Of Her Own" sheds light on both their struggles and triumphs, from trying to land at least one normal date, to dealing with relentless comments about their clothing, bodies and sexuality, to winning over tough congregants. In sharing their experiences with author Sarah Sentilles, these women help illuminate a way that the church can change to embrace what they have to offer. And in their inspiring determination to perform the creative, life-giving ministry to which they are called, no matter what the obstacles, might well lie the future of the church itself.
Sarah Sentilles earned her master of divinity degree from Harvard and is the author of "Taught By America: A Story of Struggle and Hope in Compton." She lives in Carmarillo California. "A Church of Her Own: What Happens When A Woman Takes the Pulpit" Harcourt Books. April 14, 2008. $25.00. ISBN978-0-15-001392-0.
