Faith of Our Mothers Living Still: Princeton Seminary Women Reshaping Ministry

Abigail Rian Evans and Katharine Doob Sakenfeld
Foreword by M. Craig Barnes
The Women in Ministry Initiative supports the publication of a book that will tell the story of women at Princeton Seminary. To be published by Westminster/John Knox in 2017. This book presents an overview of the ministry of women associated with Princeton Theological Seminary over the last two hundred years. Beginning with a historical overview of early pioneering women at the seminary and a chapter highlighting selected trailblazers in ministry, it goes on to showcase twenty-eight first-person narratives by women from diverse racial-ethnic, geographical, and denominational backgrounds in a variety of ministry settings. It concludes by developing new understandings and directions for Christian ministry and theological education to challenge the twenty-first-century church. The book includes the newly commissioned hymn “Faith of Our Mothers, Living Still,” along with several appendixes that feature time lines and highlight Princeton Seminary faculty and alumnae. Faith of Our Mothers, Living Still celebrates the diverse ministries in which women are called to serve God and others, which inspire a wholistic vision for theological education that can benefit seminaries, the church, and the world.   View book flyer
