Let her be her. And let her be heard. For Pastor Brady Boyd, these are the two main wishes for his young daughter and the world she'll encounter as a woman. In Let Her Lead, Boyd calls on the church and the wider world to let women be who they are and speak their voice with confidence and conviction.
The question of women in leadership remains touchy for many people, especially church people. In this brief and engaging book, Boyd defuses the tension by offering a fresh, practical, and biblical perspective and revealing the leadership roles women play at New Life Church in Colorado Springs. Through it all, Boyd imagines a bright future that could be awaiting his daughter and what she may be invited to do. And he shows all of us—men and women alike—the roles we can play to create that better reality.
"I am so gratified to know my friend, Brady Boyd, is standing with those in the larger church community who see women in ministry leadership as timelessly intended by God and thus wholly consistent with the Holy Scriptures—both Old and New Testament. I urge leaders and other workers in today’s church to read, be nourished, and join in seeing the whole Body of Christ activated for ministry." —Jack W. Hayford, Chancellor, The King’s University–Dallas/Los Angeles
"In this landmark book, Brady Boyd expresses what Dr. Paul Yonggi Cho learned many years ago when 47,000 of his 50,000 cell leaders were women. His elders refused to help him when his health had broken, but his women (who excel at nurturing) rose up and built the largest church in the history of the world. Let's release this mighty multitude: 'The Lord gives the Word; the women who announce the news are a great host!' (Ps. 68: 11, ESV)." —Larry Stockstill, Pastor, Bethany Church
I've walked the halls of Brady's offices hearing his female staff members rave about how he lets them lead. I've also walked the halls of corporate America, wishing for more men like Brady who would let women lead. This small book is big on wisdom for the church and the marketplace. —Lynette Lewis, Speaker, Business Consultant, Author of Climbing the Ladder in Stilettos
I am really glad that my friend Brady Boyd decided to write this book! So many books that deal with controversial topics try to score points or win a debate, but that isn’t what Brady does here. He simply wants to see what the Bible says about women in leadership. He deals with this very sensitive issue with understanding and love. What he finds is so encouraging—this is a book that everyone should read. —Greg Surratt, Lead Pastor, Seacoast Church; Author of Ir-Rev-Rend
The role of women in the church has long been a confusing and hotly debated subject. In Let Her Lead, Brady Boyd passionately tackles this subject with both delicacy and insightful truth as he shares stories from Scripture and his own life. He takes an in-depth look at what God’s Word has to say about women in leadership and skillfully applies it to our lives and culture today. You’ll be challenged and inspired as you look at leadership from a whole new perspective. —Robert Morris, Senior Pastor, Gateway Church; Best-selling author of The Blessed Life, From Dream to Destiny, The God I Never Knew and The Blessed Church
Let Her Lead is a long-overdue book that deals with an issue that has haunted the church for centuries. It's time for the church to get it right as it relates to a woman's role in marriage, the church and society. As this book heals wounds in the hearts of women, it will bring understanding to the minds of men. —Jimmy Evans, Founder and co-host, Marriage Today; Senior Elder, Trinity Fellowship
Brady Boyd delivers a refreshing and uplifting take on the role of women in ministry. His words are expressed with such common sense and compassion that it begs the question of why such gender issues exist in the first place. Through scripture, personal experience, and rational consideration, Let Her Lead paints the picture of the competent, insightful woman in the professional world. Women of God have such great influence over the direction their church takes and the lives of its members, and this book will make it clear once and for all just how crucial is the role women play in the modern church. Whether her calling is to raise a family or to make crucial executive decisions, this enlightening read will inspire the women of the church to embrace their talents and use them to value any ministry, whatever those talents may be. —Pastor Matthew Barnett, Co-founder of The Dream Center
