This book will challenge everything you thought you knew about the Bible’s teaching on gender equality and women’s place in ministry.
As we enter the third decade of the 21st Century our societies are still wrangling over the role of women in the world.
Many advocates of male superiority have based their opposition to emancipation on various readings of Bible verses, but scripture actually reveals itself as the one true pathway to emancipation and progress.
The age-old belief that leadership is male, no longer stands up under scrutiny. Misogyny has no place in God’s kingdom.
With a blend of personal story and teaching grounded in historical and biblical research, this revelatory book is brimming over with truth and an invitation to enter into the love of God the Father.

About the Author
He has served as Pastor at two churches in Staffordshire (England)and Glasgow (Scotland). In addition he has been involved in and led prophetic ministry, healing ministry as well as having served in various leadership roles in local church.
In 2005 he had an encounter with the Lord which had a profound effect upon him. After a process with God he heard the Lord call him 'Son' and that encounter (which is ongoing) has revolutionised his whole life and ministry.
John is convinced that Sonship, living as Jesus did, is the call and core of Christian life.
Jesus only did what he did out of his relationship with His Father (John 3:16; John 5:19; John 14:10) and if we want to be like Jesus then it is important for us to live in the same relationship with Father as Jesus did. In fact it is the Father's desire to conform us to the image of his son (Romans 8:28, 29) and it is something HE does (Philippians 2:13) through an ongoing outpouring of love into our hearts.
