Many women expect a man to respond like her girlfriend. But he can't. A man can't think like a woman - and he can't help that he can't. Few men enjoy long emotional talks like a woman does, but they do value connecting in other ways. She can learn to recognize his special love signals. Hormones clarify why men and women respond differently to the same situations and how they are part of God's plan for complementary relationships. Remember, God created Eve from Adam's rib, not his brain cells. Women Talk Men Walk is a 9-1-1 answer for having a sizzling relationship by decoding a woman's words to fit her man's heart.
The mystery of the missing men can be answered in one sentence: The church has forgotten how to speak to men. While the church's language has excluded women in its use of nouns and pronouns, it has excluded men in everything else. Its content, character, and construction say, "You don't belong here." Church Talk Makes Men Walk: - Corrects the myth that men are innately non-religious or non-spiritual; - Demonstrates how the culture increasingly reflected in church talk has filtered action-oriented people out of the church in favor of relationally orientated ones; - Demonstrates that the same factors that have driven most men from the church have also driven like-minded women away; - Provides research-based and theologically informed solutions to the problem of the missing action-oriented men and women. Chapters presenting well-documented social science research alternate with chapters presenting practical steps that answer the question, "So what should the church do?" Written in a conversational, humorous, and sometimes confessional style, Church Talk bridges the gap between the academy and the local church. It shows how language that is inclusive of both women and men, relational and action-oriented, can create a church that is once again gender-balanced and missional.
The story of four childhood friends who watch women in their lives suffer abuse by men, leading the men to grow up promising to treat women with love and respect. They learn that things have changed in today's society in home and work. The friends would never have thought that women would be the abusers of men, carrying out acts of physical, sexual, emotional and verbal abuse, leaving the men no choice but to walk out and leave their children behind.
If we recognize that economic growth requires the efficient allocation of resources, then how can half of the world’s population be prevented from making a full contribution? We acknowledge that women are different, yet fail to realize their potential as equals. We accept that women need to be empowered, yet debate who should take the lead and who the stakeholders are. This book grows directly out of the personal challenges the author grappled with, the conversations she has had with women in a variety of settings, and the constructive debates with corporate representatives and policy planners on how the process of change should be initiated. It asserts that the responsibility of enhancing gender diversity at the workplace does not lie entirely with the companies, although much work needs to be done by them, but with several stakeholders—the government, NGOs, men, and women themselves—all of whom need to work together to bring about an equitable environment for women at the workplace. When these stakeholders operate in isolation they are less effective; they add greater value when networked. This book is a must-read for those who would like to walk the talk and suggests how together we can ensure equity with effectiveness. It provides ideas and agenda for action to create an ecosystem of empowerment.
