More Questions and thoughts...
I've been emailing with a publisher at Abingdon Press about the need for resources for and by women in the emerging church. With his permission, I wanted to post some of the questions he has asked because I would love to here the responses you all would give. I know there is a wide spectrum of women here and it would be good to hear all different opinions.
The questions are -Can you say a bit more about exploring women in scripture?
What new angles of vision are EW using that are helping them recover
women's stories in scripture?
What are the topics that women would like to see equal representation on?
Who are the authors/writers that emerging women would read or like to hear from?
Some practical questions: How can we show that there is an audience for these
books? What contexts can we envision the books being used in?
Please give your thoughts.
On a related note, I posted some thoughts on Emerging Women at the Emergent Gathering here
at my blog. Perhaps thinking through the various responses/roles of women in the emerging church can help us think through what resources might be helpful.
