Aims for a deeper understanding about the roles of women in the faith community
40 Questions About Women in Ministry charts a course for understanding differing views on the topic. The accessible question-and-answer format guides readers to specific areas of confusion, and authors Sue Edwards and Kelley Mathews helpfully zero in on the foundations of varied beliefs and practices.
Edwards and Mathews cover interpretive, theological, historical, and practical matters such as:
*What terms best describe the various views on women in ministry?
*What did God mean that the woman was man’s helper corresponding to him?
*How is it that Bible-believing Christians reach vastly different conclusions about 1 Timothy 2:11-15?
*How did Western culture influence the role of women in society and the church?
Combining a strong adherence to Scripture, vast academic and ministry experiences, and a commitment to Christ-honoring dialogue, 40 Questions About Women in Ministry is a valuable guide for pastors, ministry leaders, church groups, and seminarians.
