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

Do you ever feel like life doesn't get any easier? The world is throwing you punches and all you can do is duck and dodge? Do you feel like just living day-to-day is like a climb uphill?


Your spiritual life should be a battle! The writer of Hebrews tells us to "hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering" (10:23 ESV). What (and whom) do we need to meet this challenge? How does simply "holding fast" turn into such a workout of faith? The Alliance's own author, speaker, and blogger, and Mortification of Spin co-host, Aimee Byrd, invites us to join her in some "theological fitness" training as she unpacks our call to perseverance and explores the great metaphor that physical fitness lends to theology. Learn about the "fighting grace" God has given us, and discover how we are equipped to live lives of obedience even amidst the suffering and irritations of ordinary life.

If you feel like you need some extra perseverance in your theological fitness, then this book is for you!

"If you think all exercise is drudgery, you're not doing it right. On the other hand, if building strength and stamina exhilarates you, you're more likely to persevere and achieve a greater measure of fitness. That's as true of our souls as it is of our bodies. If the pursuit of theological fitness sounds tedious to you, you're in danger of becoming a spiritual couch potato.

Aimee Byrd is... the very best kind of theological sensei--an enthusiastic encourager, not a dour drill sergeant. She knows the joy of biblical and theological understanding, and it's an infectious delight. She shows how to gain and maintain theological fitness--and how to find great enjoyment in the exercise."  
--Phil Johnson, Executive Director, Grace to You

Aimee Byrd, Todd Pruitt, and Carl Trueman, hosts of the Alliance's Mortification of Spin podcast, recently sat down with PlaceForTruth.org's Jonathan Master, Dean of Cairn University's School of Divinity, to talk about the podcast. The conversation covered a wide range of topics as the hosts took some time to reflect on their experience with the podcast so far, some of the impetus behind its creation, how it fits in with their broader ministries, and a few of their favorite episodes. 

Our thanks to Cairn University for hosting Mortification of Spin and producing this video.

Our own Aimee Byrd, of Mortification of Spin, was interviewed on prayer by David Livernois at Credo Magazine. Credo deserves to be regularly visited (ignoring the early piece here with Sam Storms suggesting one ought pray in tongues). But hearing Aimee speak openly and honestly about the challenges of the Christian prayer life is worth the read, and then worth sharing!

And speaking of Mortification of Spin, the gang raged on the campus of Cairn University today! We thank Cairn's president, Todd Williams, and his entire team there for their hospitality. And the live recording with Place for Truth's Jonathan Master, with students joining in the fun was great! Let us know should your school wish to host a live event.

The Mortification of Spin podcast has been airing for a year and a half, attracting tens of thousands of listeners each week. And while there are some issues and certain episodes that we are asked to avoid, remove, or apologize for - we've not succumbed to any of that. BTW - the one thing we hear most often is for more. For more of Carl Trueman, Todd Pruitt and Aimee Byrd - but we suspect they really mean more of Aimee.


So while the actual podcast schedule can't change - it will continue to air each and every Wednesday - we can bring you more content from the hosts. The blog content of Carl from reformation21.org, of Aimee from HousewifeTheologian.com and of Todd from his blog known as 1517 will all be combined at Mortification of Spin.


There it will sit alongside the podcast, it's archives, the huge archives of these three prolific writers, and soon, new and fun content extras! So the web address will not change - MortificationofSpin.org and HousewifeTheologian.com - but the causal conversation about things that count will grow!


The Mortification of Spin is a ministry of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals. The Alliance is a coalition of pastors, scholars, and churchmen who hold the historic creeds and confessions of the Reformed faith and who proclaim biblical doctrine in order to foster a Reformed awakening in today's Church. Learn more about the Alliance at AllianceNet.org.


The Alliance, and all of its ministries, including Motification of Spin is supported only by its readers and gracious Christians like you. Please prayerfully consider supporting Mortification of Spin and the mission of the Alliance. Please donate here.
