It is about time that we heard the voices of Asian Christian women servant-leaders. We need to understand, be increasingly aware of, and recognize their contribution in national, regional, and global leadership contexts.
This book is a must-read! It provides a comprehensive discussion and encourages the Asian Church to release and acknowledge the gifted women who serve alongside men servant-leaders.

If you are expecting Unashamed Servant-Leadership to provide pat answers to the perplexing problem of the lack of Asian Christian women in leadership, look elsewhere. Writing from an insider's perspective, Rajagopal crafts a much-needed start to the discussion of inequality. The uniquely prepared author invites ten daughters of Asia, operating from a culture of shame, to unashamedly tell their real-life narratives of transformation and encouragement despite Christian leadership revolving around men. In the light of cultural, spiritual, familial, theological and other challenges inherent in Asian societies, the forum of female voices and the author's insightful interpretations challenge the church to mobilize and activate Asian Christian women into servant-leadership. As the Majority World church continues to swell, Unashamed Servant-Leadership is an important addition to leadership and missional libraries.
