Item description for Recovering Biblical Ministry by Women by George Winston & Dora Winston...
Overview According to a Christianity Today reader survey about gender roles: Seventy-eight percent of respondents think: "Christian leaders need to speak out on proper roles for men and women." Eighty-eight percent agreed: "There is a lot of confusion about male and female roles in the Christian world today.... The key actors in the evangelical debate have clearly reached an impasse." (March 2002) This book proposes careful but clear biblical answers to all questions: It is based on the inerrancy of Scripture and rejects the deculturizing hermeneutic. It is not egalitarian. It provides irrefutable exegetical evidence for the husband's authority in marriage. It affirms family values. It is not radically complementarian. It provides in depth refutation of eighty-five different objections and restrictions to ministry by women in the church. It frees women to serve Christ fully. Dr. John H. Armstrong, President: "Reformation and Revival Ministries, Inc." "I have found it the most satisfying exposition of the Holy Scriptures on this subject that I have read in thirty years of thought and exegetical work."

Not Tradition, Nor Feminism Apr 8, 2006
Finally a book on the topic of women in the Church that takes a comprehensive look at the Bible. The authors move from the OT to the NT, from clear passages to difficult ones. They take into account all major spheres of authority like the State, the workplace, nature and of course the authors don't avoid marriage, the family and the Church. The result of their work is a biblical view of women that holds together. This 560 p book is a true biblical theology based on a high view of Scriptures, thorough exegesis and clear hermeneutics. It's scholarly, no doubt, but will be easily read by anyone. A must!
