No Little Women

|
NLW.jpegAimee Byrd, co-host of Mortification of Spin and the Alliance's Director of Women's Initiatives, is passionate about encouraging women in the church to grow in the wisdom and knowledge of the Lord. Her latest book No Little Women: Equipping All Women in the Household of God (P&R Publishing, 2016) "aims to help the whole church by examining the initiatives for a group that fills over half of our congregations - the women." Don't miss that point, this is a book written for women in the church and church officers, as well as laymen.

Some questions addressed in No Little Women are:
How Does God describe women?
Should the church have women's ministries?
How does the church minister to every member?
Are women in the church being properly equipped in the Word?
Can men learn from women?
What is our responsibility in sitting under the Word?

A women's sphere of influence is vast - home, church, work, and beyond.  It is important for the Church to invest in them and equip them to be discerning; recognizing bad doctrine and understanding that theology has practical application in their everyday lives. Aimee shows in this book how strengthening women in the church strengthens the whole Church.

"Women are our most committed resource for doing the work of the kingdom, and they deserve our best thinking and support. . . . Aimee Byrd writes with wit and wisdom, biblical clarity and theological maturity." - Liam Goligher, Bible teacher, No Falling Word

Have you ever had your doubts about God? In the storms of life have you ever wondered if you could truly trust Him and His sovereign plan? Do you have questions for Him that seem to go unanswered? 

Ecclesiastes is for people who have their doubts about God, but can't stop thinking about Him. The author of Ecclesiastes had his doubts too, and these very doubts enabled him to speak to skeptics as well as believers down through the centuries.

Ecclesiastes is a book rich in literary artistry and multi-layered depths of spiritual meaning. In his new book Why Everything Matters: The Gospel in Ecclesiastes, Philip Ryken, Bible teacher on weekly broadcast Every Last Word, explores this wonderful Old Testament book and reminds us again of the need to trust God with the questions even when we do not have all the answers. 

The Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals has several copies of Why Everything Matters: The Gospel in Ecclesiastes to give away. Sign up to be in our drawing or pick up your copy today at Reformed Resources.org.
