Henderson (Jim and Casper Go to Church: Frank Conversation about Faith, Churches, and Well-Meaning Christians) tells the stories here of many women who, despite their predominance in the life, membership, and mission of most churches and denominations, are routinely rebuked and squashed, if not worse. Henderson's crucial insight is that the central feature of Christianity is-ought to be-"giving power away, particularly to those who lack it", not craving or needing power or keeping it from women.
Verdict: Insightful and moving, Henderson's book is a mirror of what Christian spirituality ought to be; good for church groups and pastors as well as individual readers.

In talking with women around the country, Jim Henderson has come to believe that there is an epidemic of quiet, even sad resignation among dedicated Christian women who are feeling overworked and undervalued in the church. As a result, many women are discouraged. Some, particularly young women, respond by leaving the organized church... or walking away from the faith altogether.
Containing personal interviews with women and new research from George Barna, The Resignation of Eve is a field report on what women have to say about how they’ve been affected by their experiences within the church.
It is crucially important because, across the board, the research shows that women are driving changes in the church... so what will happen if they resign?
Inviting women to speak for themselves, The Resignation of Eve is a must-read, life-changing book for women who have been engaged in the Christian church as well as their pastors and ministry leaders.
