New book examines women’s leadership in the church

Island resident Jim Rondinone has published a new book on women’s leadership in the church, titled “Who Says, Women Can’t Lead?”
The Block Island Times had an email interview with Rondinone about the book. The following interview was edited for clarity and length.

Q: What is your connection and interest in leadership within the church?
JR: I attended a two-year Bible college in the early 1980s, having received certification in Christian Leadership summa cum laude.

Following graduation, I was hired by another branch ministry, where I received training to be a high school principal. Over the years, I have conducted Bible studies on the mainland as well
