Janette Hassey

No Time For Silence, Zondervan Publishing House, 1986

Chosen as one of Eternity magazine’s best books of the year in 1987, this book encourages women to use their gifts fully In proclaiming the Gospel. Dr. Hassey presents the significant contributions made by American women engaged in public ministry in past years, and who were enthusiastically supported by such institutions as Moody Bible Institute. She writes, “The earliest Bible conferences welcomed women preachers and Bible teachers.....Turn-of-the-century Evangelicals committed to the imminent return of Christ had put (heir intense convictions to action. The urgent need to mobilize workers to spread the gospel world-wide left do time for one sex to remain silent.”

Dr. Walter C. Kaiser of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School endorses No Time for Silence as “one of the most remarkable volumes to appear In recent years on the sensitive topic of women in public ministry.”

Janette Hassey is a graduate of Denver Conservative Baptist Seminary and holds the Ph.D. in History of Christianity from the University of Chicago Divinity School.
