Renaming Career Women of the Bible – Shawna R. B. Atteberry
Jan 062007
 

I am thinking of renaming the Career Women series. The main reason I want to is that I want to include Mary, Hannah, and the Matriarchs. Now I think being a mother (especially a stay-at-home mom) is a full-time career and then some. So I am fine leaving it with the current title.

I have also thought it would be nice to have more a inclusive and descriptive title. The one I’ve come up with that I like the most is: Biblical Women: Prophets, Evangelists, and Mothers. When I wrote my thesis its primary purpose was to show that single woman had a valid place in leadership positions in the church. Now I would like to expand out to show that women have always been single or wives, mothers, and leaders in the Bible, and that these callings are not mutually exclusive.

I would love to hear your thoughts. I would also love to hear any suggestions you have for a new title for the series. Thanks.

  1. How about “Apostles in aprons”, “prophets and preachers with periods”, or just “church mothers”?

  2. By the way, would it be possible to see your thesis? I find the question you raise very important.

  3. I need to get my thesis into a sendable format. You’re not the only one who would like to see it. I’ll see what I can do. Thank you for your input.
