"There is a lot going on in this book. . . . [Lawless's] use of scholarly tools from folklore, critical feminist discourse, feminist theology, and ethnography signals the need for multiple interpretive perspectives in understanding the lives of women in ministry, ordained or not."—Signs
Lawless collects and interprets the stories of ten women ministers and examines their public and private lives, their ministries, their images of God, and their negotiations of sexuality and the religious life.

Elaine J. Lawless is Curators' Professor Emerita of English and Folklore Studies at the University of Missouri.
