“One of the continuing hotbeds of debate in evangelical circles today is the nature and scope of leadership roles open to women in the church. Can a woman preach God’s word? Can she serve communion, baptize, or lead in worship? Can she marry and bury? Can she serve as the lead or solo pastor? Can she teach an adult Bible class? Can she serve as a bishop, elder, or deacon?”
These questions begin the first essay in this week’s giveaway, Two Views on Women in Ministry, and they continue to be pressing matters in today’s church.
In this Counterpoints volume, complementarians Craig Blomberg and Thomas Schreiner dialogue with egalitarians Linda Belleville and Craig Keener about those questions, in the context of the biblical texts addressing women’s role in the church.
Although this continues to be a heated, ongoing debate, this book hopes to furnish readers with a clear and fair-minded presentation of the two primary views on women in ministry, so that you can better understand each side’s strengths, weaknesses, and complexities.
