HASH(0x9df9df78) von 5 Sternen Insightful, smart, engaging, faithful, and oh so relevant to what I view as the biggest issue to be facing our church community. 5. September 2014
Von Rebecca v.U. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Insightful, smart, engaging, faithful, and oh so relevant to what I view as the biggest issue to be facing our church community today. This book is all about Zion-building: being of one heart and one mind. I would encourage everyone to read it--across the spectrum of belief and activity.

If you are less engaged with the church right now due to gender concerns, this book will help you feel understood and validated. You also will find (new!) constructive ideas and strategies that may inspire you to approach situations in a new light. I've read every blog out there about gender issues for the past 10+ years, so I wasn't expecting to find new material here, but I was wrong.

On the other end of the spectrum, if you are 100% satisfied with how our church and culture currently operate, you will hear a faithful, well-respected woman offer fair, reasonable, and compassionate insights into why some women, and men, feel that all is not well in Zion. It is painful to hear about some of the negative experiences, but I think all church members would benefit from having greater compassion about these topics. If you've ever said to yourself "How can feminists say they don't fee equal in the church? I feel equal!" then this is the book for you (assuming you wish to better empathize with others who hold different perspectives from you). And, if you want to dip your toes into understanding these concerns, I can assure you that McBaine treats these ideas gently and carefully, always seeking to allow for a compassionate interpretation of the motives of all parties involved.

McBaine seeks to uplift and unify, not tear down or divide, and there is nothing in the book that is meant to provoke, insult, or be inflammatory toward anyone on any side of the discussion. There is no implication that women who do not share these concerns are ignorant or blindly following their leaders, nor that feminists are unrighteous or don't understand the gospel. On the contrary, there is a strong emphasis on respecting and understanding one another.

Another aspect that I found incredibly valuable was McBaine's "nuts and bolts" approach to improving communication and understanding on both sides. She promotes well-evidenced, effective communication methods and provides specific examples of ways we can work together to create a more Zion-like community. I have already purchased multiple copies of this book and have shared it with family members, friends, and priesthood leaders. I truly look forward to the discussions resulting from engaging the topics addressed in the book, as well as better understanding others' unique points of view. Everyone's contributions are needed in order to build our community, no matter where we fall in this debate.

Some have criticized the book as relying too heavily upon the potentially arbitrary nature of local leadership to enact changes, and posit that what is really required is top-down, church-wide reforms in doctrine/policy. I understand that sentiment and to some degree long for more revolutionary changes. However, the paradigm that McBaine writes from does not demand new revelation or policies (not even changes to "the handbook"), but seeks to work within our systems and structures as presently defined. There is much room for personal revelation and innovation that I believe we as a church community are not fully considering, and McBaine points us toward a positive and exciting direction through her wise insights.

HASH(0x9dfa936c) von 5 Sternen Moderate, Practical, & Religiously & Socially Charitable 12. September 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Women at Church by Neylan McBaine is timely, cooperative, and conciliatory. She does not write from a perspective of deficiency but rather from abundance. Simply, Mormonism, according to McBaine, does not need to be remodeled organizationally relative to priesthood ordination and/or keys. Rather, the Church maintains an abundance structurally and organizationally that may be more fully explored and utilized to enrich the experiences that women (young and old) have as they engage in the restoration personally and communally to the benefit of all. Her recommendations revolve around potential changes that could be made within the current ecclesiastical structure of the Church (including current handbooks of instruction) without teetering on the verge of protest or or suggesting the need for institutional reformation. To be sure, McBaine is not challenging the authority of the hierarchy of the Church. Quite the opposite, she is completely supportive. Furthermore, everything she suggests in the book could be implemented tomorrow if individual local leaders were amenable. Any practicing Mormon knows that that "if" is a significant consideration. However, McBaine clearly acknowledges that some local leaders will be less willing to take certain steps relative to gender issues than others. So be it. Nevertheless, her book is a fascinating exploration of moderate and acceptable possibilities within the current framework of the Church while respecting the authority and admiring the sacrifices made by men who are called to preside in Mormonism locally and generally.
Furthermore, McBaine introduces her readers (or reminds them) of a cadre of exceptionally talented female voices that are producing significant contributions to scholarship that treat women in Mormonism from a variety of angles. Jill Mulvey Derr, Laural Thatcher Ulrich, Karen Lynn Davidson, Fiona Givens, Melissa Inouye to name a few. Frequently, the writings of these authors are not carried by the major booksellers currently operating in Mormon markets. As a result, their works may have experienced a certain level of invisibility among the very women that could benefit most from reading their works. "Women At Church" brings the contributions of these women into the mainstream market place and utilizes their scholarship in thoughtful ways. Most significantly, this aspect of the book means that women are communicating with women on a subject wherein historically, men have controlled the narrative.
Finally, McBaine employs a gentle and intelligent tone in her writing that is not polarized. However, it is possible that the most ardent OW supporters will view "Women At Church" as having not gone far enough while Mormons that possess something of a fundamentalist streak will see McBaine as looking beyond the mark. This book will not be sweet nectar to either group. However, a careful reading of the text will make it quickly evident to the reader that the author struck a moderate ground that is practically useful and religiously and socially charitable on a topic that is complex and immensely significant. Valuable indeed!

HASH(0x9df9c918) von 5 Sternen she offers love, and seeks to promote understanding between various groups ... 19. September 2014
Von David Bokovoy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
My wife and I read this book together and we struggled to put it down. For many of us, this is the contribution to Mormon studies we've been waiting for. Neylan McBaine's Women at Church takes a powerful look at current LDS administrative and cultural practices concerning women in a way that builds bridges across the community and increases faith. Drawing carefully upon statements from LDS leaders that support the need for greater sensitivity towards the concerns some LDS women face, Neylan carefully guides readers along an inspiring, thought provoking journey into challenging topics that must be addressed by the LDS community. In so doing, she offers love, and seeks to promote understanding between various groups who while part of the same religious community, happen to see these matters quite differently. She is a peacemaker, encouraging all Latter-day Saints to mourn with those who mourn and to comfort those who stand in need of comforting. The times they are a-changing, and in a day and age when LDS young women are assuming both teaching and administrative roles at a higher number than ever before, Neylan encourages her readers to reimagine gendered practices in a way that will affect real change, while remaining true to LDS doctrinal precepts and the Church Handbook of Instruction. Simply put, this book is an absolute "must read," not simply for those interested in this topic, but for everyone in anyway connected with Mormonism.

HASH(0x9dfa8540) von 5 Sternen Timely, powerful, skillfully written, needed! 2. März 2015
Von J.D. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Every Latter-day Saint woman and man should read this book. It is powerful, skillfully written, and needed. I was nervous to read this book, because I am what some would call a “Molly Mormon.” I wouldn’t want to read any literature that might cause my pioneer-ancestor-strong testimony to falter. Neylan McBaine, the author, points out things that are problems to some women, and then suggests some solutions to consider.
She uses quotes from apostles, prophets, and general relief society presidents that give support to her claims. Her facts are presented in a logical, easy to understand format. She surrounds the points of discussion with so many irrefutable quotes that the reader must nod her or his head and agree with each chapter.
I am a person who is embarrassed by the women who wanted to attend the priesthood session of conference. I don’t understand them. I am very trained in tradition and the way things are currently done in the church. I am happy with my role as a woman and I have never felt less than men who hold the priesthood. I am sure that fact is because of the teachings my mother gave me, which showed me that women do have power; we just need to quietly go about doing our own good in our own way. Neylan addresses this topic.
She has made me aware of the needs of some of our sisters. I am afraid that I might have been with the group of ladies she spoke about, who resisted changes. McBaine has made me ask myself why should I be the cause of someone’s sorrow and possible loss of testimony? If little changes can be made that will aid the Lord’s work to move forward, and help another’s testimony, then why should I stand in the way?
I remember when sisters did not say the opening prayer in Sacrament meeting. I was aghast when it started happening. I wondered if it was, “OK.” The author has read the handbook. The handbook “teaches correct principles and allows people to govern themselves.” (Joseph Smith paraphrase) Things that we thought were set in stone were really only traditions. I am glad that a sister said the prayer at general conference. It didn’t bother me before, but now it seems natural that women should have a turn as well. After reading this book, I will be open to change; I will try to understand traditions and allow things to evolve for the best.
I found myself nodding and agreeing with everything she said. I read this together with my husband and we had many good discussions about the topics in this book. I believe that other couples should do the same. I believe bishops and stake presidents should read this book. I believe that it helps us understand and start to be aware of changes that should and need to be made. McBaine asks us at the end of the book, “Are you with me?” I answer a full hearted, “Yes!”
Read this book!

HASH(0x9dfa86f0) von 5 Sternen to identify and acknowledge the real pain felt by some LDS women who would like to be more involved 28. August 2014
Von Blair Dee Hodges - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Neylan McBaine loves being a Mormon woman, but she also believes “there is much more we can do to see, hear, and include women at church.” This book has two main goals: First, to identify and acknowledge the real pain felt by some LDS women who would like to be more involved, and second, to offer solutions to provide a more fulfilling church experience for them—solutions that fit within the Church’s current administrative framework.

"Women at Church" engenders true empathy and inspires faithful action—a potent combination for those who wish to enrich the experiences of LDS women at church. I hope many members of the Church pick it up.
