On the 40th anniversary of the irregular ordination of the group of women who became known as the "Philadelphia Eleven," Darlene O’Dell introduces readers to the women involved, the paths that brought them together on that that momentous day - and what has changed (or not changed) in the life of the church over the intervening years. This is the first book to document the story in first-person interviews. It includes a Foreword by Carter Heyward.

Darlene O'Dell has published several books and has served as the National Park Services head writer for Jamestown Archaeology. She has taught at Clemson University and the College of William and Mary and currently lives in Brevard, North Carolina.
