A universal story, Woman In The Pulpit is reaching around the globe.
I’m excited to announce that book readers in Ireland are reading Woman In The Pulpit!
Several months ago I became aware of the global reach of Woman In The Pulpit. However, lately the news from Ireland has been wonderful. With the use of words like ‘timely’ & ‘powerful’ by readers, Ireland is another country added to the global reach of this book. It is heartening to hear that Grace’s story is touching women in ministry in countries far and near.
Woman In The Pulpit tells the story of Rev. Dr. Grace Alexander, a recent seminary graduate. It follows her during her first year as a Senior Pastor as she becomes accustomed to the political terrain in the world of ministry. She sets her own path in the face of opposition by the all male Ministerial Alliance. Even in the face of tragedy, Grace holds on to her faith in God.
A universal story, Woman In The Pulpit is reaching around the globe. Read Woman In The Pulpit and see why it strikes a chord in the hearts of readers.
During a recent trip to Atlanta I had a chance encounter of the most wonderful kind.
After visiting with a group of young women and men in ministry, one of the women said to me, “I read your book, Woman In The Pulpit. I take the train to work every day. I have to tell you this! Woman in the Pulpit was so engrossing that I read past my train stop. When I looked up, I looked around. I couldn’t believe that I had missed getting off at my stop. I never miss my stop! But, that morning I did.”
I had hoped my story would touch people to their core. But I am also pleased to know that a reader was so fascinated with the story that it kept her engaged long past her designated train stop.
She continued, “I got off at the next stop and had to take the next train back. My only excuse for being late was to admit that I had been so engrossed in a book that I had totally ridden past my stop. I was a little embarrassed until everybody wanted to know what I was reading.”
Needless to say, I left the meeting uplifted. And eager to complete the movie script.

I am delighted to learn that Woman In The Pulpit is popular among Canadian readers. Women in ministry, church groups, and book clubs are discovering Woman In The Pulpit. It is heartwarming to learn that women beyond the borders of the United States can identify with Grace Alexander and her painful experiences as she seeks acceptance through her work in ministry.
Fresh out of seminary, Grace returns to her hometown anxious to try out the new forms of ministry she has learned. But welcome arms are not out to greet her. She navigates the terrain, steps in potholes, hits curves, and battles diabolical forces.
Thomas Haliburton, leader of the Ministerial Alliance, is not ready for the new pastor in town. He vows to do everything in his power to thwart Grace’s efforts.
Enter Clyde Williams, who is engaged to Haliburton’s daughter. Clyde doesn’t believe women should be ministers, and certainly not pastors, until he meets Grace.
A major scandal involving Grace threatens to tear apart the town. Now Clyde has to decide whose side he is on.
Woman In The Pulpit is truly global. Readers in Canada are saying great things about the book. I hope you’ll check it out and share it with your friends.
