Author and playwright Vanessa Miller addresses the women-as-preachers debate in her newest romance novel, Yesterday’s Promise.
Lead character Melinda Johnson knows at a young age that God has called her to preach alongside her father, Bishop Johnson. When he retires and appoints her ex-fiance, Steven—now a widower with a young child—as pastor and bishop, it reopens old wounds of broken promises from the people Melinda loved most.
While dealing with the rejection brought on by her father’s choice, she finds out that her father hopes she and Steven will reconcile. But it doesn’t help the situation when Steven proclaims he still does not agree that women should preach.
Yesterday’s Promise goes beyond the traditional romance and gives a descriptive example of the communication barriers between men and women relating to love, career, ministry and family.
