Courageous Spirit: Voices from Women in Ministry (Upper Room Books, 2005)

"What a rich collection of reflection and profound thought that not only celebrates fifty years of full clergy rights for United Methodist women but also witnesses to the depth of commitment that has brought us to this place. Each fall a new group of women come to [seminary]on their way to ordination. This collection will be a great resource to fill their heads with the words of those who have gone before them." -- Maxine Clark Beach, Drew Theological School
