Women in the Church's Ministry
The ordination of women has been one of the most pressing and passionately debated issues within the church in recent years. In this volume, based on the prestigious 1995 Didsbury Lectures, R. T. France explores several important questions of biblical interpretation raised by the serious disagreements among Christians over the nature of women's ministry. France primarily focuses on the issues as they are manifest in evangelical circles, where appeal is made instinctively to the authority of Scripture. He challenges readers to think through what it means to claim that our theology and practice are "biblical." His insightful arguments help Christians move beyond the seeming impasse over the role of women in church ministry.
