Leslie Johnson, along with husband Gary, has been in Christian ministry for
nearly two decades. They have two children, Jacob Israel and Sara Mishael.
Frequently traveling with a popular youth evangelist, Gary enjoyed sharing
the dramatic story of his salvation and deliverance from violence, drugs and
alcohol in high schools and churches across the south. After marriage, they
spent several years with the Salvation Army, ministering to the homeless,
inner-city youth, unwed mothers, drug addicts & alcoholics. A year with a
Christian After-Care ministry found them helping Christian ex-offenders adjust
to life after prison, while Gary served as a volunteer chaplain to Parchman
Penitentiary's "Death Row." For nearly a decade the Johnsons worked as
House Parents & House Parent Supervisors, meeting the needs of abused, neglected
and troubled adolescents. They also founded and operated a non-profit
Christian community center of their own called The Lighthouse.
It's been a wonderful and exciting journey, and Gary & Leslie are now in what
they call their "second phase of ministry", meeting the needs of Christians just
like you through their own Names of God Collection and books which they've
written. Their exciting new book - Does God Really Prefer Men? -
addresses the hot topic of gender equality in the Body of Christ and is their
first published work. This challenging and uncompromising look into the heart of
God toward His daughters is a perfect companion to Why Not Women? by
David Hamilton and Loren Cunningham (founder of Youth With A Mission - YWAM) and
10 Lies the Church Tells Women by J. Lee Grady (best-selling author &
editor of Charisma Magazine). Does God Really Prefer Men? is available at
Amazon.com, BooksAMillion.com, Barnes&Noble.com and many more outlets.
Chapter 5 of Does God Really Prefer Men? An Open
Letter To The Church In America
by Leslie Johnson with Gary Johnson
This chapter is on Christian marriage; a subject is rarely addressed even in
books on gender equality. The Johnsons have done a fine job. We have
left it in PDF format for easy reading.
