"Sarah Sumner's practical approach to Scripture offers the church new hope for unity and growth."
"With courage and honesty, Dr. Sumner explores the biblical and cultural assumptions behind evangelicals' disagreements over gender and leadership. This book cuts to the heart of Christian anxieties about sexuality and the church. It gives new hope to women and men who have felt torn between their support for women's ministries and their adherence to scriptural norms. I recommend it very highly."
"This is a deep and important book, with a significance far beyond what the title alone would suggest. . . . I strongly encourage anyone who is concerned about the conduct of visible church life to study this book carefully. It provides a rich discussion of all the major issues concerning gender and leadership in the church, and often brilliantly engages the major voices already on the field."
"Dr. Sumner's book is like a fresh breeze from the New Testament, moving clouds of bias and freeing us to look again at the valuable ministry for women in the kingdom of God."
"Every once in a while someone enters into a theological skirmish and lifts it to a level where rays of biblical sunshine reveal a whole new way of looking at the issue. Honest male readers will repent--at least, I did--of some thoughts. So will honest female readers. And we'll humbly and joyfully explore the new dimension Sarah has helped us see."
"Sarah's solid biblical approach clarified several issues for me personally. Men & Women in the Church is the 'talking point' book on this subject for this generation."
"This book is a tribute to Sarah Sumner's academic devotion and puts to good use her theological training. Her analysis is fresh and much on the mark. Helga and I are praying that her ministry will have a great and holy impact."
"Sarah Sumner's book has the promise to break the divisive deadlock between egalitarians and complementarians that continues to hinder the effectiveness of the church. Sumner's clear, carefully argued message challenges all of us regardless of our position. A must-read for Christian leaders and potential leaders."
"This landmark book by theologian Dr. Sarah Sumner is long overdue. I predict this book will engender helpful discussions among concerned Christian leaders for decades to come."
"I've met with hundreds of female students, youth workers and pastors desperate for a balanced biblical view on women in leadership. Finally, we have one."
"Dr. Sumner's Men & Women in the Church is one of the most carefully and sensitively written and argued works available on a topic of vital concern for the churches, their leaders and their people in this new millennium. Even among readers who have already taken definite stands, egalitarians can learn modesty, complementarians moderation."

Sumner takes Piper to task and makes a great case for what the metaphor "head/body" really means. I only wish she did not spend so much time trying to convince the reader that she is not angry; why would righteous indignation discredit her book? This author and Craig Keener are two eloquent voices in today's church with ultimate regard for scripture who conclude that the Bible does not support the subordination of women.

I just finished this book and was very impressed. Dr. Sumner did a very thorough job of logically leading the reader through the information and supported every assertion with scripture. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has struggled with the question of God's intentions for His children (both male and female) who are called to lead. I just wish the sub-title - "Building Consensus on Christian Leadership" - had been the main title because that was definitely the main objective of the book.

This is the most balanced view on church leadership I have read. Sarah begins by setting the discussion in an atmosphere of compassion seeking understand. If we all worked together with this Godly attitude, we would be growing in Christlikness no matter where we settled on the issue. And that is the real goal of the Christian life, isn't it?

This book presents a new look at a very old issue. It will challenge us to dig deeper into the meaning of the scriptures and question traditions that have been passed down since the beginning. It is well written and farely easy to follow for theology. The thing that impressed me the most was this author's presentation. Even as she questions the differing opinions on this subject and offers a new biblical perspective, she does so respectfully and graciously. I highly recommend this book to anyone searching for balance or unity in the church.

Finally a book about the importance of men and women seeking after Christ rather than the hypothetical "Biblical view of manhood and womanhood." For all of those who are seeking an alternative to the unconvincing views of egalitarianism and complementarianism, this is a good book.
