FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Wikilesia Volume 2,
Taking Flight: Reclaiming the Female Half of Godís Image through
Advocacy and Renewal, explores the changing views and
perceptions of womenís status both in faith community and throughout
the world. In this collaborative volume, we hear from established
and bestselling authors, theologians, bloggers, leaders and
practitioners, pastors, artists, and an ex-president, all who come
from diverse backgrounds to offer a fresh approach to the theme of
gender roles during a historic era when post industrial tsunamiís of
societal and economic shifts are quickly approaching the world over.
This defining topic is not one the church can fail to recognize and
hope to successfully navigate the future. Will it react, engage in
unremitting theological debate, or will it act by seeking the high
ground of integrity, balance and harmony. Is it possible?
ABOUT WIKIKLESIA: The
award winning Wikiklesia Project, is a ground breaking, ecclesial
publishing experiment in personal participatory media and on-line
collaborative publishing. This project has created a non profit,
between - publishing paradigm based on collaboration over copyright.
The model is flexible and nomadic, exploring new publishing
paradigms that not only create streams of information and narrative,
but which have the potential to generate social movement as well as
raise money for charities.

FlightĒ lives up to its title! The collaborative nature of this
project gives witness to the power and creativity of doing more in
Christ-centered community rather than futile discursive matches.
When grounded in Christ, it is possible to soar in hope that men and
women working and serving together can be reconciling forces in a
world that desperately needs our full attention and contributions.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading it!
Dr. MaryKate Morse, author of Making Room
for Leadership and professor at George Fox University
found "Taking Flight" to be a thoroughly captivating book from the
first page. Thoughtful and provoking. Relevant but never reactionary
as readers might expect. Full of Scriptural precedents and
historical background to these changes happening around us while
offering prophetic insight as to what's coming up next. So many
issues of great importance and all of them dealt with fairly and
passionately. Thanks for a memorable Friday afternoon."

Fight" is an important project that brings together a rich array of
diverse voices to discuss the issues facing women in our world
today. It is refreshing and challenging to read a book like this
that provides strong theological groundings, historical perspectives
and examples from today's world that are both instructive and
insightful. I would highly recommend this book to any seeker after
truth and freedom.
