Full Product Description
This is no longer the case. Today we can have a career, full-time or part-time, at home or away from home, or we can focus our energy and time solely on family and volunteer work. We can get married or stay single, have children - the 'regular way' or through adoption - or not. But choices do not necessarily make life easier - they often make life more difficult, because they produce guilt, self-doubt and stress.
With compassion and insight Ruth Haley Barton identifies the pressure exerted on Christian women - by church, culture and from within - and the radical call of Christ to each of us to be free. Exploring eleven freedoms available in Jesus, she shows how Christian women can respond to the genuinely liberating call of Christ on their lives.

Longing For MoreGuest reviewer, via The Good Book Stall
“No matter what our circumstances…we still need to ask ourselves, What have I come to the kingdom for?” says Ruth Haley Barton. In Longing for More, she examines what it is to be a Christian woman and what it can be. She begins with the suggestion that many women have problems simply because they are women, and may be longing for the freedom to understand and fulfil God’s purposes for their lives. The 11 chapters cover a range of subjects, including identity, careers, sexuality, motherhood and God’s view of women. The author is brilliantly honest about life and her own experiences and writes sensitively about tricky issues. I found her appendix about 1 Timothy 2:11-12 fascinating, but it might not be helpful for some readers. Likewise some may prefer a fuller biblical argument in favour of women in church leadership. But hats off to Ruth Haley Barton for tackling so many aspects of womanhood successfully, powerfully, using biblical examples and without generalising.

"I want to stand strongly and firmly on the side of courage, on the side of truth, on the side of goodness, on the side of the revolutionary gospel of Jesus. Longing for More challenges, encourages, motivates and empowers me toward that end." Lynne Hybels
