Bishop Judith Craig interviews all of the living United Methodist women bishops and weaves their reflections together to tell the Church, especially young women and those interested in ministry, the stories of these pioneers at the episcopal level. Each bishop has been asked to reflect on her early life, her education, her call to ministry, how she emerged as a leader, and what she identifies in looking back that helped shape how she carries out her role today.
