“[Elizabeth Knox] effectively reminds us of the truth that God has called both women and men to be His change agents in the world, equally gifting and calling us to do so, together, in every sphere of life. You will be encouraged and inspired!”

“[Elizabeth Knox] gets real and addresses some of the challenging realities facing women in the workplace….There is such a need for a book like this!”

“Christian women professionals comprise one of the fasting growing yet most often ignored demographic of women in the church. In this visionary work, [Elizabeth] Knox dismantles the notion that work done in the business sector has secondary or derivative value.”
– Carolyn Custis James | Author, The Gospel of Ruth: Loving God Enough to Break the Rules and Half the Church: Recapturing God’s Global Vision for Women
“In her timely book, Faith Powered Profession, Elizabeth Knox encourages Christian professional women to see their careers as important to God–and necessary for expanding His kingdom. With Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In, a lively discussion has begun about whether women should put career or kids first and how that important decision plays out in the marketplace. Knox enters the discussion with a faith-filled perspective. Beginning with an exploration of biblical passages relating to work and to women, Knox helps us create a biblically sound view of women in the workplace. With a firm foundation in place, Knox then offers practical suggestions of how Christian women can address workplace challenges, such as work/life balance, relationships with male colleagues, and sharing our faith with others. Christian professional women will surely be encouraged by Knox’s relevant and thoughtful book, finding joy in the realization that a woman can indeed flourish in both faith and career.”
