Kate Bowler - The Preacher's Wife: The Precarious Power of Evangelical Women Celebrities — In Conversation with Elizabeth Dias

Upcoming Event
Sunday, November 17, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Bowler—best-known for her compelling memoir, Everything Happens for a Reason, in which her stage IV colon cancer provoked a reckoning with her Christian upbringing—is associate professor at Duke Divinity School and her new book is a revelatory look at the lives of prominent women in the staunchly male world of American evangelicalism. Though prohibited from becoming ordained ministers, women such as Beth Moore, Joyce Meyer, and Victoria Osteen have embarked on a quest for spiritual power, mastering the delicate art of carving out unofficial niches for themselves by writing books, hosting radio programs, and even leading events, while also meeting traditional expectations of modesty and subservience.
