Overview May women teach or exercise authority over men? Should they be ordained? Questions like these rage in the debate over women in ministry. Four committed evangelicals, Robert Culver, Susan Foh, Alvera Mickelsen, and Walter Liefeld, explain their positions and respond to the others, making for a lively exchange of ideas.
Publishers Description Should women teach men? Should they exercise authority over men? What about ordaining women? Even those who agree that Scripture must determine our answers do not agree on what it teaches. And too often differing sides have not been willing to listen to one another. Here in ove volume are the views of four deeply commited evangelicals that focus the discussion on the issues. Robert Culver argues for what might be called the traditional view that women should not exercise authority over or teach men. Susan Foh suggests a modified view which would allow for women to teach but not to hold positions of authority. Walter Liefeld presents a case for plural ministry that questions ordination as a means of conferring authority. Alvera Mickelsen defends the full equality of men and women in the church. What makes this book especially helpful is that the writers all respond to the other essays, pointing out weaknesses and hidden assumptions.

Balanced Interaction reveals the options Sep 4, 1998
This is an excellent introduction to the theological question of a woman's role in the church. This unique book allows evangelical Christian authors, each of whom grounds their opinion in Biblical text, to speak for their position. It presents selections from the spectrum of opinions. This unusual feature allows the reader to evaluate the Biblical options for themselves. While no conclusion can ultimately be reached from this book alone, it permits one to begin to address the question in a Biblical manner.
