Women and Men in Ministry: A Complementary Perspective

Overview


The role of women in the church is a debate that has raged within the church for much of the twentieth century. On one side are those who say there is no difference between men and women.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

I have long waited for a book on women and men in ministry that had the right tone, asked the right questions, and pursued the right balance.  This work, edited by Robert Saucy and Judith TenElshof, delivers just that and more.  It shifts the discussion from the areas of rights and power so popular in our culture to one of complementary ministry, so that the body is seen working together in harmony as God designed it to be.  Well done!
-Darrell L. Bock, Research Professor for New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

This is a book that needed to be written!  It will help all of us be sensitive to the many ways women can serve in the church, yet maintaining important biblical distinctions.  Excellent contribution to an on-going controversy.
-Erwin W. Lutzer, Senior Pastor, The Moody Church
