Publisher's Description

Does Paul teach a hierarchy of authority of man over woman, or does he teach the full equality of man and woman in the church and home? In Man and Woman, One in Christ, Philip Barton Payne answers this question and more, injecting crucial insights into the discussion of Paul’s view of women. Condensing over three decades of research on this topic, Payne’s rigorous exegetical analysis demonstrates the consistency of Paul’s message on this topic and its coherence with the rest of his theology. Payne’s exegetical examination of the Pauline corpus is thorough, exploring the influences on Paul, his practice as a church leader, and his teachings to various Christian communities. Paul’s theology, instruction, and practice consistently affirm the equal standing of men and women, with profound implications for the church today. Man and Woman, One in Christ is required reading for all who desire to understand the meaning of Paul’s statements regarding women and their relevance for Christian relationships and ministry today. This work has the potential of uniting the church on this contentious issue.

    Dr. Payne's knowledge of ancient Greek and Hebrew as well as his conscientious attention to the socio-cultural situations in each of the churches to whom his letters are addressed make this book an exceptional resource. He reads Paul's letters in context and interprets Paul's attitude toward women in light of this context. Some of the more subtle and detailed analyses can be difficult to follow if you are not acquainted with these languages, at least from a lexical perspective, especially since Dr. Payne does not provide transliterations. On the other hand, the meat of his work is available to the reader without such background. Dr. Payne places Paul in context with the scriptures that Paul himself would have known and used in guiding the church through their struggles with defining who they were, how they worshipped and how they should live in the world but not of the world. He also includes very straightforward facts from the letters themselves, e.g., the many women and men Paul named in the letters, how their ministries are described, and how they are addressed, encouraged or corrected by Paul. If you are looking for a fresh and comprehensive perspective on Paul's words about women and the ministry of women that is grounded in scripture and the circumstances of the churches of the time, you will find this book a worthwhile read.
