What Does the Bible Say About Women in Church Leadership? [NOOK Book]

Overview

In 2004, Grace Communion International began a thorough examination of women in church leadership positions, such as pastors. A careful study was done in Scripture, with special attention to certain key NT texts. Both complementarian and egalitarian scholars sometimes push the evidence further than is warranted. With a cautious approach, we concluded that women may serve as pastors.

Meet the Author

I grew up in a small town in southern Illinois: Sparta. Our family of seven was religious but did not go to church - instead, we had a Bible study at home every week. I eventually began attending a church after I moved away, and then I went to a Bible college, and eventually a seminary. Now I work for Grace Communion International, and teach part-time at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California. My interests are the Gospels, the epistles and theology of Paul, and ethics.

    Biblically, no woman can be a pastor in the structured christian church

    It is incorrect to use Galatians 3:28 as support for women as pastors That verse is speaking about salvation 1 Timothy 2:12-14 teaches that a woman is not to teach or exercise authority over a man in the church We need to pray for more Bible centered teaching men of God in our christian churches
    It is very difficult to find a church today that teaches the Bible
    I do appreciate much of the author's other studies/ books
