Description : Respected scholar Dorothy Lee considers evidence from the New Testament and early church to show that women's ministry is confirmed by the biblical witness. Her comprehensive examination explores the roles women played in the Gospels and the Pauline corpus, with a particular focus on passages that have been used in the past to limit women's ministry. She argues that women in the New Testament were not only valued as disciples but also given leadership roles, which has implications for the contemporary church.

Description : Rich in historical events and colorfully written, this fascinating account of women in the church spans nearly two thousand years of church history. It tells of events and aspirations, determination and disappointment, patience and achievement that mark the history of daughters of the church from the time of Jesus to the present. The authors have endeavored to present an objective story. The very fact that readers may find themselves surprised now and again by the prominent role of women in certain events and movements proves an inequality that historical narrative has often been guilty of. This is a book about women. It is a setting straight off the record -- a restoring of balance to history that has repeatedly played down the significance of the contributions of women to the theology, the witness, the movements, and the growth of the church. An exegetical study of relevant Scripture passages offers stimulating thought for discussion and for serious reevaluation of historical givens. This volume is enriched by pictures, appendixes, bibliography, and indexes. Like many of the women whose stories it tells, this book has a subdued strength that should not be underestimated.

Description : Bonnie Thurston examines the personalities, place, and power of women in the New Testament. She provides a cultural and religious context for them by briefly outlining the position of women in the Greco-Roman world. The aim is to reveal the ways in which early Christianity attempted to liberate people from oppression (particularly patriarchy), as well as to point out the places and ways in which the early Christian community compromised with the dominant society.

Description : Does the Bible permit or prohibit the ordination of women?Many evangelicals in the Anglican Church of Australia now support it. But some remain opposed because certain New Testament texts seem to deny women the right to preach or lead a congregation. A conference called by the Evangelical Fellowship in the Anglican Communion (Australia) brought into dialogue theologians of opposing convictions on the issue.This book makes the dialogue public in the interests of aiding the Church in its pursuit of truth.

Description : Much of the history of women, in religion as in other fields, is lost because it was overlooked or considered unimportant. It is therefore surprising that so many fragments of women's stories survive in the New Testament texts composed by men. Why did they include so many references to women and why are women, as a group, treated so positively by the male New Testament writers? Women in the New Testament shows how the stories of women are an integral part of the Gospel and its meaning for us. It also relays how we can respond to the challenge these women represent, whether we are men trying to understand or women trying to find our voices within the tradition of faith found in the New Testament. Chapter one discusses three women of expectant faith. Chapters two and three deal with women who are changed by Jesus. Chapter four focuses on New Testament women of influence. Chapters five and six show how women disciples spread and gave shape to the gospel message. Chapters are Women of Expectant Faith," *Women Changed by Jesus, - *More Women Changed by Jesus, - *Women of Prominence, - *Women and Discipleship, - and *More Women and Discipleship. - Mary Ann Getty-Sullivan, PhD, teaches at St. Vincent College and St. Vincent Seminary, Latrobe, Pennsylvania. She is the author of First and Second Corinthians from the Collegeville Bible Commentary series, author of the God Speaks to Us series of children's books, and editor of the Zacchaeus Studies: New Testament series published by The Liturgical Press.

Description : In matters of mission history, most major works that treat the full sweep of the church's missional self-understanding are less than helpful in understanding women's part of that narrative. Smith tries to redress the balance with a comprehensive history of mission that highlights the critical contributions of women, as well as the theological developments that influenced their role. --From publisher's description.

Author Alice Mathews encourages you to see Jesus as a compassionate man who “defied convention and took enormous risks to offer hope, new life, or a second chance to women.” In this large print book, learn how to trust this Son of God, align your priorities with Him, and respond to His call.

Description : Paul's letters stand at the center of the dispute over women, the church, and the home, with each side championing passages from the Apostle. Now, in a challenging new attempt to wrestle with these thorny texts, Craig Keener delves as deeply into the world of Paul and the apostles as anyone thus far. Acknowledging that we must take the biblical text seriously, and recognizing that Paul's letters arose in a specific time and place for a specific purpose, Keener mines the historical, lexical, cultural, and exegetical details behind Paul's words about women in the home and ministry to give us one of the most insightful expositions of the key Pauline passages in years.

Description : Studies of key biblical passages on women's roles in the church fill entire bookshelves, if not libraries. But in Women in the Church, Stanley Grenz and Denise Muir Kjesbo offer the first in-depth theological study of this issue--one of the most bitterly contested issues of our day. Carefully considering the biblical, historical and practical concerns surrounding women and the ordained ministry, this book will enlighten people on all sides of the issue. But Grenz and Kjesbo make no secret of their bold conclusion: 'Historical, biblical and theological considerations converge not only in allowing, but also in insisting, that women serve as full partners with men.' Thorough and irenic, Women in the Church bids to take an intense discussion to a new plane.

Description : Out of print in recent years, this newly revised edition of Charles Ryrie's The Role of Women in the Church, featuring a new foreword by Dorothy Kelley Patterson, proves its ongoing relevance in addressing what is still a divisive issue at the forefront of Christendom: What can a woman do in the church of God? With clarity and depth, Ryrie recounts the status of women in ancient Greece and Rome. He looks at the significance of Mary as Christ's mother, the attitude of Jesus toward women, and at women as ministers to Jesus. There are Scripture based chapters on marriage, celibacy, and divorce as well as a woman's place in church life. The book's final section examines the status of women in the church during the second and third centuries. In sum, Patterson views Ryrie's work as "a masterpiece of blending both historical records with biblical exegesis to present a well-reasoned biblical answer to the burning question from this generation and those to come."

Description : As the debate about women's ministry intensifies, so does the need for a calm and balanced assessment of all the arguments - both biblical and theological - the debate has so far produced. That need has now been fully met by Ruth Edwards in this clear, comprehensive, and highly readable study. Part one provides a fresh analysis of the New Testament data, viewed in the light of our latest knowledge of both Jewish and Graeco-Roman attitudes of the time. Having considered the biblical foundations, the book continues in Part Two with a perceptive appraisal of the way Christian attitudes to women have developed - from the early Fathers through to the key movements and insights of this century, all of which are now combining to question traditional ideas about priesthood and the crucial relationship between ministry and authority.

Description : With issues such as the ordination of women and the call for "inclusive" language affecting the Church today, Dr. Amda Spencer has provided a helpful and important study of how the Scriptures really speak to these and other issues related to the role of women in the Church. From the biblical account of creation and "the fall" to other relevant Old Testament passages, "Beyond the Curse" carefully examines the attitudes toward and teachings about women" especially those of Jesus and Paul. "Beyond the Curse" sheds light on instances in the New Testament of feminine authority and on feminine metaphors used in Scripture to define God, the church, and society. Jesus is shown to have broken through the cultural barriers of first-century Palestine in His attitudes toward and dealings with women. Paul's later works are found to be consistent with Jesus' views, as Spencer notes the vital place of women in Paul's ministry. Women in leadership roles and the many implications are viewed firsthand by Dr. Spencer" herself a minister. Dr. William David Spencer, the author's husband, gives an afterword, explaining his personal journey as the spouse of an ordained minister. Timely and vital to an understanding of the growth of a woman's role in the Church, "Beyond the Curse" is a compelling and important work.

Description : This book demonstrates, through the full text of the scriptures, that women have the same God-given rights as men to preach, teach, and serve in the same offices of the church as men, doing everything spiritually that men do according to the leading of the Holy Spirit. The apostle Paul wrote, And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God who worketh in all But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as He will (1 Cor. 12:6, 11). It also shows that the opposition against the women that are called to preach and teach the word of God is a calculated plan that is instigated by Satan to prevent them from fulfilling the will of God.

Description : For centuries, the question of who and what women should or should not be doing in God’s churches has been labeled down through the centuries as one of the great controversies, and it remains today to be a big conflict in 2019. The passages in 1 Corinthians 14:34–35 and 1 Timothy 2:11–12 found in the New Testament have been used and abused wrongfully to satisfy and appease the opinions and theories of the male mind-set, to satisfy the perspectives of the overview of what some pastors and some men believe. God has set positive proof before us in the Old Testament and Jesus and the Apostle Paul in the New Testament about a woman’s place in the church, in ministry, and in leadership. This is an argument that should have been put to rest centuries past. To persist in asking this question is to doubt God and to deny His Word, for God and His Word are one. The Bible says in 2 Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God.” The Greek word for inspiration is theospneustos, which literally means “God-breathed.” Every word of the Bible is God-breathed, directly from God’s own mouth; therefore, it is infallible. According to some pastors and men of today, this is absolutely unheard of, and the actions displayed by men is that even though God is God, God had no right to put women in these positions with power or authority. What about the women that labored with Paul? How do we account for all those women? How do we explain the women who fought for God on the front line and were fellow laborers with God in the Old Testament and Jesus in the New Testament as well as Paul? Nowhere in the entire Bible is there a hint of evidence that God, Jesus, or the Apostle Paul ever indicated that women were not to be in leadership roles or in ministry. Read the book, search the scriptures, and find out for yourselves.

Description : Much has been written on servant leadership, but it is not always tied to egalitarian leadership. Sometimes authority and power instead of God’s love are presented as the core of the Christian faith. The church at times derails, imitating worldly culture, emphasizing entitlement that relies on an innate or permanent human hierarchy of rank. Responding to today’s conflict over leadership, Christian Egalitarian Leadership calls us back to its biblical roots: what is Christian egalitarian leadership? Why is it biblical? How does it work? Thoughtful and devout Christian leaders carefully explain how sharing leadership follows God’s intentions and is crucial to implement today. The theoretical and practical ramifications of these concepts are extended to many areas of the Christian life by numerous qualified individuals, women and men of different races and economic and social classes. Chapters overview New Testament teachings, biblical authority, Old Testament and contemporary examples, God’s intention at creation, pagan philosophy’s influence on Christian hierarchal leadership, multicultural and multi-ethnic leadership in the United States and Africa, marriage, rearing children, equipping youth and laity, church planting, retirement, and missions, from the cradle to the mission field.

Description : The role of women in the church is an ongoing concern among Christians, both in the West and in the developing world. The discussion usually falls into the broad views of complementary and egalitarian positions. The former view considers the role of women to be restricted at least in the one area of teaching authoritatively a whole congregation as an elder or pastor. The egalitarian view places no restrictions on the role of women anywhere, whether in or out of the church. In this book the author challenges both views. He proposes a paradigm representing a biblical world view that acknowledges the influence of biblical authority, culture, and the increasing actualizing of equality in Christ that the Gospel proclaims. He cites the observance of the Sabbath that was once universally authoritative--based in Creation--but no longer is as a parallel for developing an understanding of the role of women in the church. Where does his proposal lead? His conclusion is surprising.

Description : From her unique position as a Japanese feminist theologian, Hisako Kinukawa provides readers with an intriguing new perspective on the encounters between women and Jesus in the Gospel of Mark. 'Women and Jesus in Mark' explores the meaning not only of those episodes in their context, but from the perspective of the author's own context as a contemporary Japanese Christian. In the world of the New Testament, impenetrable walls of religion and culture separated the sexes and structured a rigidly patriarchal culture. As 'Women and Jesus in Mark' points out, then, the women who approached Jesus--the hemorrhaging woman, the Syrophoenician woman, the anointing woman, as well as those who followed him--risked severe sanction for what must have been considered scandalous behavior. Kinukawa asks how their encounters with Jesus--and especially his responses--reflect the central message of Mark. 'Women and Jesus in Mark' contends that it is the interaction of biblical women with Jesus that draws from him the most fully liberating implications of the gospel.
