Product Description

This painstaking work will enlighten people on all sides of the issue, though Stanley Grenz makes no secret of his bold conclusion. Historical, biblical, and theological considerations, he writes, converge not only in allowing, but also in insisting, that women serve as full partners with men in the work of the church.

Publisher's Description

Studies of key biblical passages on women's roles in the church fill entire bookshelves, if not libraries. But in Women in the Church, Stanley Grenz and Denise Muir Kjesbo offer the first in-depth theological study of this issue--one of the most bitterly contested issues of our day. Carefully considering the biblical, historical and practical concerns surrounding women and the ordained ministry, this book will enlighten people on all sides of the issue. But Grenz and Kjesbo make no secret of their bold conclusion: 'Historical, biblical and theological considerations converge not only in allowing, but also in insisting, that women serve as full partners with men.' Thorough and irenic, Women in the Church bids to take an intense discussion to a new plane.

    I have read a number of books on this subject lately. This is a scholarly, well researched,and well documented book which I would absolutely recommend to anyone interested in women in the ministry. It takes the view that women are allowed full access to all ministry functions, including pastor, but it is never disrespectful of other opinions. If I could buy only one book on the subject, it would be this one, as it covers every objection to women in the ministry throughly. Highly recommended.
