Running on Empty: The Gospel for Women in Ministry
6 in stock
As women, ministry pushes us to moments of insufficiency, exposes our weaknesses and tests our patience. Some days it feels like a little more sleep, a lot more coffee, and a pat on the back might sustain us. But deep down, we know these things can never fuel our ministries.
In Running on Empty, Barbara Bancroft draws from her experience as a missionary woman and pastor's wife to demonstrate how the gospel must be our message to ourselves as well as others.
Along the way, she confronts the 'mythic ministry model of Proverbs 31' and other stereotypes and expectations that hinder women from enjoying and displaying the gospel each day. Offering more than crisis management tips or how-tos, Running on Empty reorients women's hearts and minds to the joy of belonging to Christ and being a part of his kingdom work.
