The debate rages! Do women belong in vocational pulpit leadership? What does the Bible say? Three things distinguish this book's argument. First, the author's passion; pages sizzle, thanks to decades of detractor abuse. Second, out of loyalty to the Scriptures she rejects traditional feminist arguments. Third, her intellectual honesty: she was willing to abandon her calling if the Bible proved her wrong. You will love her adept use of Hebrew and Greek!
This book divides into four parts. Part One details her personal journey; we learn the energy driving her research. In Part Two, she exposes the sordid roots of detractor's arguments, and then treats us to an in-depth analysis of the four Biblical arguments they claim proves their case. In Part Three, she traces strategic roles women have enjoyed from Eve to the twenty-first century, including fascinating stories of Reformation leaders (publicly opposed to women in leadership) placing women in critical leadership/preaching roles. In Part Four, with a twist, she summarizes the argument every detractor should hear: Women Belong in Ministry Leadership!
