About-

"Upon it's publication in 1975, Man As Male and Female, a study of Scripture in which Paul Jewett argues that man and woman are properly related only when they accept each other as equals, received much critical acclaim.
Now, in The Ordination of Women, Jewett argues that on the basis of the Christian ideal of the partnership of the sexes, women ought to share fully with men the privileges and responsibilities of church ministry.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"I found it hard to believe that anything really fresh could be written about the ordination of women, but Paul Jewett has done it! His insights into the historical roots of the sexism in the Church are both appealing and persuasive. . . . Everyone concerned with the future of the Church should read this book!"
Cynthia Wedel
Past President, National Council of Churches
"Paul Jewett's theological essay is a welcome argument, both sensitive and powerful. Against traditional objections to the ordination of women. . . . 'Traditionalists' dare not ignore such a book; all should find it challenging and clarifying."
David M. Scholer
Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"Jewett's measured, musing style, his thoroughly systematic method of examining all angles of his topic, should lay to rest many of the evangelical objections to female ordination . . . I welcome this book as a major contribution to the cause of justice of evangelical women."
Virginia Ramey Mollenkott
William Paterson College
