This second edition work provides a biblical defense of the traditional complementarian position of women in the church. It offers detailed, careful analyses of Paul's views concerning women in the early church. How did he see their role? What was the Old Testament's perspective and the prevailing practice in the ancient synagogue? How did Jesus' teaching make a difference? This book offers a definitive statement of the complementarian interpretation of this crucial New Testament passage on the role of women in the church. Each chapter has been updated and reworked, and a new chapter of pastoral application has been added.
