Publisher's Summary

What does the Bible say about the value of women? Does the Bible teach that women are as valuable as men, or does it portray them as somehow more flawed, more suspect, or weak and easily deceived?

Beginning from Genesis and working all the way through the story line of the Bible, Worthy demonstrates the significant and yes, even surprising, ways that God has used women to accomplish his kingdom goals. Like men, they are created in his image, and their lives reflect and declare his worth. Worthy will enable and encourage both men and women to embrace this true and lofty vision of God’s creation, plan, and their value in his eyes.

Best-selling author Elyse Fitzpatrick and pastor Eric Schumacher together invite women to embrace a transformative and empowering view of their Maker, themselves, and the church. But this isn’t only a book for women. It is also a book for men, especially leaders, who want to grow in their understanding of God’s perspective on women, people who normally make up the majority of their congregations. Men might be wondering if they’ve missed something amid the abuse scandals that are rocking the church. Might the headlines they’re reading today about abuse have their roots in a denigration of the value and worth of women?

Worthy: Celebrating the Value of Women will help every listener see the value, place, and calling of women through study questions and a “Digging Deeper” section that will help men and women discover how to cherish, value, and honor one another for God’s glory.

Every Christian man should read this book.

Especially those of you that thing you don't need it. I can honestly say, you've never studied what the Bible says about women like this before.

Very helpful and eye-opening

This book has helped me see ways that I have wrongly jumped to conclusions about women without seeking to understand where they're coming from. It has helped me to really see how women have been de-valued by men or in our society, and really makes me want to learn more about womens perspectives, struggles and experience of life. I was especially encouraged by how they looked at God's value for women and men in the Bible as fellow humans made in God's image and partners in sharing the Gospel.

We needed this!

What a time-appropriate, thoughtfully, and genuine book. They address hard things and encourage us toward Christ in our responses. I'm so grateful I took the time to listen. I will surely be purchasing this one, and handing it out like candy.

Worthy is vital to more than just women.

Worthy is an incredible book that will leave the reader/listener different from when they started it. Regardless of where you land on the spectrum of egalitarianism and complementarianism, Christ is the author and finisher of our faith, and Worthy keeps Him at the center of this in-depth look at the role women have in Christ’s bride, the Church. From its spotlight on the seemingly standard and straightforward biblical accounts of women we all learn from an early age to the often skipped over deep theological passages that make us question women’s role in the church today, Worthy is a must-read.

A valorous clarification of a woman’s worth according to her creator

I am moved by the courage that both authors had to have in order to face their short sighted views on women. I am left feeling loved, affirmed, validated, and most importantly hopeful that God is able to grow redeemed men and women into a family! A must read.

Interesting read

I wish I had had the time to read this book for myself instead of listen to the audiobook. The recording felt very jerky. The content was heartfelt and comprehensive - perhaps even on the side of too much information.

Great recording

The narration was very well done by a male narrator and a female narrator, reflecting the authors' contributions.

Hard hitting

A challenging read, a lot of things to think through. An in the trenches perspective. May add to a them and us feelings. Useful nonetheless.
