Promotional Information

Halee Gray Scott's timely book moves women beyond the gender debate zone to deal with the practical challenges women face in the often uncharted territory of ministry leadership. We need to get on with the work God is calling us to do and to call other women to join us. Dare Mighty Things is full of practical wisdom to help women leaders avoid the potholes in the road ahead that slow us down unnecessarily and cause avoidable casualties. This book is an important resource I will be recommending to women leaders I know. -- Carolyn Custis James, , author of Half the Church Halee Gray Scott dares women to discover how their lives matter, how they are gifted and called by God, and how they are needed as leaders today. She does not pit Christian complementarians and egalitarians against one another. Instead she finds points of collaboration: how women can be leaders, how spiritual gifts are not engendered, how all Christians---including women---have a responsibility to exercise and steward their giftedness, and how churches have a responsibility to ensure that women are able to exercise their giftedness in freedom. Scott's book is soundly biblical and theological, critical and creative, inspiring and practically applicable. -- Don Thorsen, , Professor of Theology, Azusa Pacific University Halee Gray Scott is a committed Christ-follower whose passion is that all humans---especially women---live out their influence. She models a life that dares mighty things and inspires others to take up the challenge for themselves. -- Elisa Morgan, , Speaker, Author, President Emerita, MOPS International Dr. Halee Scott's Dare Mighty Things is a much-needed book for all Christian women, especially women who sense a call to ministry work. Halee acknowledges and articulates obstacles of female leadership within the church, but she doesn't let us wallow there. She challenges us to redefine the meaning of leadership, to live with grit, to work hard, and to dare too much rather than too little. Dare Mighty Things invites women into the high call of living all out for Jesus and his kingdom work. -- Dr. Jackie Roese, , President of The Marcella Project I once heard a speaker say that many Christian women either fall into the trap of trying to "lead like a man" or "be nice like a girl." Halee Gray Scott offers an alternative. She calls for women to live as women in Christ Jesus. From the table of contents to the very last page, this book is inspiring and instructive, especially to those women who can feel a sense of destiny inside them. If you're female and you want to live for God, then dare mighty things, because God created women to show his greatness. -- Sarah Sumner, , author of Men and Women in the Church: Building Consensus on Christian Leadership Occasionally a book comes along with the power to inspire significant change. Dare Mighty Things qualifies---and I couldn't put it down. Halee tackles the key leadership challenges Christian women face today with researched insight, candor, and optimism. Over and over, I marveled at the wisdom of her beautiful young voice, calling women out of the shadows to experience the joy of leading for the Lord. I wish I could whisper these truths in the ear of every woman who wonders why she is here and how God wants her to spend her life. Dare Mighty Things provides a map that could revolutionize her world and rejuvenate the church. -- Dr. Sue Edwards, , Associate Professor of Educational Ministries and Leadership, Dallas Theological Seminary Reading Dare Mighty Things, I felt that Halee Scott knew me intimately and urgently spoke the truth I needed to hear. I've spent thirty years as a marketplace Christian leader, and now I serve as a nonprofit ministry leader. I've never heard anyone articulate so vividly the challenges we face as leaders and how God would have us stand in the face of them. This book activated new resolve and passion for the mighty things God is calling me to do. It will do the same for you! -- Tami Heim, , President and CEO of Christian Leadership Alliance Finally someone has filled the need for a smart, savvy, and balanced resource for women in leadership. Women who often find themselves emerging alone are now part of the honest conversation Halee Gray Scott brings. As a pastor who has worked with women for more than a decade, I have been waiting years for a resource like this. Thank you, Halee! -- Rev. Tracey Bianchi, , Pastor for Worship and Women, Christ Church of Oak Brook
