About-

In print for over three decades in English and a decade in French, la reverenda doctora Aida Besancon Spencer's Beyond the Curse: Women Called to Ministry is finally available in a fully corrected and updated Spanish version. Praised in Christianity Today as one of the five best books on the topic and selected by Eternity as a book of the year, Mas alla de la maldicion studies the biblical support of women in ministry, treating the Bible as reliable and authoritative. A key source that has helped shape current discussions on the role of women in ministry, the book includes Genesis support for shared tasks as equals, Jesus' and Paul's teachings and practice on women in ministry, the Bible's examples of women in authoritative positions, feminine metaphors for God, and an afterword written by the Rev. Dr. William David Spencer on how husband and wife have practically worked on sharing tasks.
o "Here is a technical female biblical scholar who brings strong credentials to set forth a fresh examination of the biblical texts to women in life and ministry." --Southwestern Journal of Theology
o "Spencer's book is unique." --The Reformed Journal
o "A more truly biblical approach." --Dr. Ward Gasque
o "Besancon Spencer handles well the supposedly difficult Pauline passages in 1 Timothy 2." --Alvera Mickelsen

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Rev. Dra. Aida Besancon Spencer, profesora y especialista en estudios y exegesis del Nuevo Testamento, analiza y presenta el respaldo biblico para las mujeres en el ministerio. Este libro es unico en su clase por su contenido y fidelidad a los textos biblicos y por considerar seria y responsablemente el contexto cultural e historico. Spencer plasma en esta obra sus estudios e investigaciones en forma clara con un fundamento biblico solido, superando a cualquiera de los pocos libros que yo conozca se han publicado sobre este tema. Las ediciones en ingles (continuas desde 1985) y en frances han llevado a quienes lo han leido a reconocer su gran valor. Hace tiempo que necesitabamos este libro en espanol, por su invaluable aporte a la discusion sobre la igualdad en el ministerio."
-Awilda Gonzalez-Tejera

Seminario Teologico Fuller

"La obra, Mas alla de la maldicion, es verdaderamente un tesoro y don de Dios a la iglesia Latina. En vista del 'machismo' que se manifiesta en la sociedad, y lamentablemente hasta en la misma iglesia, esta obra sera una brisa fresca del Espiritu de Dios. Spencer provee una solida y fiel exegesis de la Palabra de Dios y una exposicion biblica y teologica que responde a las inquietudes en nuestras iglesias sobre el papel de la mujer en el ministerio. Este libro merece ser leido, meditado, y sobre todo, vivido!"

"Es un placer especial recomendar la edicion en espanol de Mas Alla de la Maldicion de la Dra. Aida Besancon Spencer. Este es un libro muy conocido y bellamente presentado. Esta obra se necesita, especialmente en este tiempo, en la vida de la iglesia. Yo lo recomiendo con entusiasmo a todos los lectores."
-Walter C. Kaiser Jr.
