Women thirst for intimacy and long for meaningful activity. They often come into churches looking for truth, relevance, and relationships--three things that a healthy women's ministry can provide if it is centered around genuine study of the Word of God, the place where successful transformation begins. ^The authors offer a new model--the Transformation Model--for women's ministry that adapts to and addresses the needs of women unique to the postmodern church. The model helps churches define their purpose in women's ministry, refine their focus, and minister to women at all stages of life. ^Since the heart of the model is Bible study, the Transformation Model works equally well in the church, on campuses, and on the mission field. The book provides practical suggestions for implementing this model in a variety of venues, and includes topics such as how to evaluate women's needs, choose a team of leaders, select or write a Bible study, run a board meeting, and survive conflict. ^
