Uncovering the Biblical Perspective on Women, Work and the Home
Women’s roles are changing, but are Christian women caught in a “no win” situation? Can a woman be feminine, godly and ambitious? Is there room in the church for stay-at-home moms and aspiring female executives? How does a modern woman’s productivity differ from a man’s? Author Carolyn McCulley examines women’s changing roles in light of unchanging scripture in The Measure of Success: Uncovering the Biblical Perspective on Women, Work and the Home (B&H Publishing Group, February 2014). Providing a blueprint to guide women of all ages—whether married or single, and whether working inside the home or in the marketplace—The Measure of Success points to a deeper understanding of the biblical call of female productivity.
American women are currently being encouraged to “lean in” and build their careers, yet Christian women acknowledge there is a faith element to be included in this discussion. McCulley offers an in-depth look at what it means to be a productive, godly woman in the workplace or in the home—and suggests guidelines for living a life that glorifies God. By examining the historical role of working women have held and the role the church played in shaping profession and home, she creates a context for the modern Christian woman. McCulley fleshes out the theology of work—what God says about being productive, and how it relates to a woman’s concept of identity whether old or young, working outside of the home or within.
