Product Description

Women's submission and subordination---or full participation and ordination? Both camps in the controversy over women's roles claim biblical precedents in key Pauline texts. Keener's evenhanded study of them respects the text's authority, yet also considers that Paul wrote in a specific time and place for a specific purpose. Keener also recognizes that it's crucial to understand the historical, lexical, cultural, and exegetical details behind Paul's words if we wish to successfully interpret them and apply them to the life of the church. Now updated and containing a new preface by Dr. Keener.

Publisher's Description

Paul's letters stand at the center of the dispute over women, the church, and the home, with each side championing passages from the Apostle. Now, in a challenging new attempt to wrestle with these thorny texts, Craig Keener delves as deeply into the world of Paul and the apostles as anyone thus far. Acknowledging that we must take the biblical text seriously, and recognizing that Paul's letters arose in a specific time and place for a specific purpose, Keener mines the historical, lexical, cultural, and exegetical details behind Paul's words about women in the home and ministry to give us one of the most insightful expositions of the key Pauline passages in years.
