Product Description

Most Christian women don't want to "lord it" over men---but do want to be accepted as full participants in God's work. How can they fulfill their divine calling? Surveying Scripture and church history, Mathews advocates for an "egalitarian complementarity" that will allow women and men to use their gifts together for the good of the church. 240 pages, softcover from Zondervan.

Publisher's Description

Most women in the church don't aspire to "lord it" over men, nor do they want to scramble for position. Instead, they want to be accepted as full participants in God's work, sharing in kingdom tasks in ways that use their gifts appropriately.

In Gender Roles and the People of God, author, radio host, and professor at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Alice Mathews surveys the roles women have played in the Bible and throughout church history, demonstrating both the inspiring contributions of women and the many hurdles that have been placed in their path. Along the way, she investigates the difficult passages often used to preclude women from certain areas of service, pointing to better and more faithful understandings of those verses.

Encouraging and hopeful, Mathews aims for an "egalitarian complementarity" in which men and women use all of their gifts in the church together, in partnership, for the glory of God.
