Recovering Biblical Ministry by Women: An Exegetical Response to Traditionalism and Feminism
Publisher Xulon Press
According to a Christianity Today reader survey about gender roles: Seventy-eight percent of respondents think: "Christian leaders need to speak out on proper roles for men and women." Eighty-eight percent agreed: "There is a lot of confusion about male and female roles in the Christian world today.… The key actors in the evangelical debate have clearly reached an impasse." (March 2002) This book proposes careful but clear biblical answers to all questions: It is based on the inerrancy of Scripture and rejects the deculturizing hermeneutic. It is not egalitarian. It provides irrefutable exegetical evidence for the husband's authority in marriage. It affirms family values. It is not radically complementarian. It provides in depth refutation of eighty-five different objections and restrictions to ministry by women in the church. It frees women to serve Christ fully. Dr. John H. Armstrong, President: "Reformation and Revival Ministries, Inc." "I have found it the most satisfying exposition of the Holy Scriptures on this subject that I have read in thirty years of thought and exegetical work."
