|Women in the Church:
A Biblical Theology of Women in Ministry
By Stanley J. Grenz and Denise Muir Kjesbo
Women in the Church is the first in-depth theological study of
one of the day's most bitterly contested issues. The book carefully
considers the biblical, historical and practical concerns surrounding
women and the ordained ministry. 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.
