Item description for The Politics of Power & the Ordination of Women by Adolphus Chinedu Amadi-Azuogu...

Overview
The politics of power in the church hinders the ordination of women today. Once ecclesiastical power is involved, ruling is also involved. Consequently, the altar has also become the throne, and this tempts men to suppress women. The author argues that Jesus refrained from using any gender-specific paradigms that would have excluded women from ritual leadership. (Christian)

Publishers Description
This book deals with the politics of power in the church which is hindering the ordination of women today. Once ecclesiastical power is involved, ruling is also involved. Consequently, the altar has also become the throne. This tempts men to suppress women. Hence, efforts are made to dogmatize them into submission. This is not right because Jesus refrained from using cultic-oriented or gender-specific paradigms that would have excluded women from ritual leadership. He chose the all-gender model of the shepherd, while rejecting the gender-restricted priesthood. Thus, he opened up church ministry to all genders because he is the "God of equal opportunity." He has no gender preferences. So the age of male-monopoly is gone. The era of unchallenged dogmas is over. Women are also created in the image of God. So it is unfair to reserve ordination for men, but subordination for women. Therefore, get Martha out of the kitchen. The author, Adolphus Chinedu Amadi-Azuogu, is a biblical scholar and professor of New Testament. He holds a doctorate degree in biblical studies from the University of Bonn, Germany and a Licentiate in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Rome. He has taught New Testament courses at the Azusa Pacific University, Azusa, California, USA and at the Southern California School of Ministry, Los Angeles, where he was the director of the Doctor of Ministry. He was the Head of the Department of New Testament Studies at the prestigious Spiritan International School of Theology, Enugu, Nigeria and also taught at the Claretian Institute of Philosophy, Owerri, Nigeria. He has written many articles. His books include: Paul and the Law; Biblical Exegesis and Inculturation and Women and Gender Equality (ISBN: 978-1-59824-467-0), 2007. The author is blessed with two boys (Ebere and Ikechi), one girl (Chioma) and a God-given wife, Edith (Ugomma).
