WOMAN: Her Mission and Her Life with New Section: Four Monod Women
Adolphe Monod, a New Translation by Constance K. Walker, Editor


Adolphe Monod is best known for his book "Monod's Farewell" which was is being published by Solid Ground Christian Books under the title LIVING IN THE HOPE OF GLORY. Monod was a gifted preacher in the Reformed Church in France. This volume is the substance of two sermons preached to the congregation in Paris in February 1848.

The Translator has written, "In 2003, Solid Ground Christian Books reprinted an 1852 British translation of this monograph, which has been received with some enthusiasm. Now, as part of a series of Monod's works, a new translation is being offered. The goal has been to produce an English edition that is both more readable and more accurate than the earlier one. As in the other volumes in the Monod Classics collection, headings have been introduced to bring out the underlying structure and progression of the text.

A new feature of this edition is a section showing how Adolphe Monod's teaching was exemplified in the lives of his mother Louise, his sister Adele, his wife Hannah and his daughter Sarah. This section is made up mainly of quotations from family correspondence and diaries."

"You will read and read...and read, through tears and laughter, while wondering how any man could be so astute, so tender, so frank, and so inspiring in speaking to his Christian sisters-whatever their position in life- of the glorious, fearful, humbling and immensely influential calling of the Christian woman. In these pages, written long ago, you will nonetheless find your mother, your sisters, your friends, and mostly yourself, as you hear the passionate voice of a godly pastor and tender brother calling you to repent, to take heart, to reconsider, to resist, and to persevere in the life of humility and love to which you are called in Christ." - Rebecca Clowney Jones

"In this treasure of a book Monod makes crystal clear that the godly woman's overarching mission is to glorify God. Under that ultimate mission Monod clarifies how the godly woman is to do that specifically. He calls it her "distincitive mission." He says, "Do not count on the world to clarify this mission for you. It has never known it, and cannot understand it..." He calls on the reader to "rely on the Word of God." Skillfully unpacking the Word of God, Monod strikingly and specifically communicates the "distincitive mission" of the godly woman and grounds all of His thoughts on the Word of God. This book will equip you for your ultimate mission to glorify God and clarify your distinctive mission as a faithful woman." - Lori Rhodes, wife of Ray Rhodes of 'Nourished in the Word Ministries', and mother of five daughters

"Adolphe Monod was one of the brightest lights in the French Awakening of the 19th century. On the surface this text shows him to be a child of his times. But underneath, it is a passionate defense of the biblical view which sees men and women as ontologically equal yet economically different. That is, in their being as God's creatures, they are equally image-bearers. In their functions and responsibilities they are complementary. In Constance Walker's translation the text is as alive in English as it is in the original French. This text is required reading for the present conversation." - Bill Edgar, Westminister Theological Seminary

Additional Information


"Adolphe Monod's understanding of woman as she was created from the rib of man is profound, yet thrilling to the heart in it's simplicity. Through woman, sin entered the world; through woman, the Savior came also. Regenerate woman is the only woman and she finds her way: 'beneath the cross or nowhere'.

This book is for every woman who seeks to know her mission for which she was created by God, and the life which comes forth from that knowledge, which God expects and will work in her. It is not only for woman but for every man whose life is touched by woman."

-Shirley Cole, At What Price Truth?
