Every woman holding an office in church should read  Jun 25, 2003
The book is informative and insightful. It gives solid and bible based ways to evaluate your leadership gifts.
It does teach spiritual principles of leadership for women.

I greatly appreciated the insight into the women of the bible Esther, Miriam, Deborah, Ruth etc.

Every church lady in an office should read this book
Beautiful!  Apr 30, 2002
I loved this book! I thought Dr. Porter revealed the true leadership of some of the greatest women in the Bible. She also gave enough history for those of us who are not as familiar with the Bible as others to understand what the woman did and where the reference could be found. The questions at the end of the chapter were really thought-provoking and challenged the way I traditionally thought about leadership.
Empowers women to claim their full leadership potential  Feb 8, 2001
Leading Ladies: Transformative Biblical Images For Women's Leadership introduces four biblical archetypes whose stories define the leadership roles played by women everyday within the home, the community, and the workplace. The "weaver" is one who braids together her vision for the future; the "midwife" helps birth ideas and dreams; the "choreographer" brings people together to celebrate; the "intercessor" advocates on behalf of others. Jeanne Porter draws upon the lessons of these ancient stories to explore the principles of what she calls "transformative leadership", an alternative to traditional styles of leadership that calls on women to lead from their spiritual core and empowers women to claim their full leadership potential. Each biblical story is complimented by stories of contemporary women whose action, ministry, and work model this leadership paradigm. Leading Ladies, with its multiethnic approach, is very highly recommended reading for women involved with church work, business, neighborhood groups, community activism, schools, women's studies, biblical studies, and individual self-improvement efforts.
Transformative thinking  Oct 12, 2000
Dr. Porter did an excellent job in giving us a transformative way of looking at leadership. To my surprise, it was not for Leading "Ladies" only but offers something to the heart of the very reader who will avail himself or herself to it.

Offering this reading as a group study will, in my opinion, enhance the relationship and identify the strengths of individuals, as well the strengths of the group.

Leading Ladies: a new vision of leadership  Oct 11, 2000
Recently, I had the pleasure of purchasing and reading Leading Ladies by Dr. Jeanne Porter. To my amazement, this book was absolutely thought-provoking, innovative and literally stirred my heart as I journeyed through the pages of it.

While taking a "sneak peak" at the various leadership styles (from the back of the book, of course!), I without a doubt identified myself as an intercessor. As I began to read the book and to study the corresponding scriptures, God began to unfold some things in me that needed to be birthed-the potential of the weaver, choreographer, midwife. I was oblivious to the fact that I had strongholds and preconceived notions about myself and about my leadership potential. But I thank God for removing the scales from my eyes and allowing me an opportunity to acknowledge and confront these archaic ideologies and release them to His teaching and healing power. As an intercessor, I am encouraged to go forward freely and confidently and to allow God to birth all He's placed in me (weaver, choreographer, midwife, etc.).

This book is not gender-specific and is a must-read for all that are ready to move forward. I believe that your very heart and mind will be transformed if you avail yourself to the message given in this book. It is, among other things, revolutionary and will challenge and entreat you to see your God-given potential to become man or woman that God has created you to be.

Thank you, Dr. Porter!
