Two Views on Women in Ministry (Counterpoints free pdf What does the Bible say about the role of women in the church? With pros and cons on either side of a heated, ongoing debate, no definitive conclusions have emerged. The purpose of this book is to furnish concerned readers with a clear and thorough presentation of the two primary views on women in the ministry so they can better understand each one's strengths, weaknesses, and complexities. This revised and strengthened edition presents two essays representing the "egalitarian" and the "complementarian/hierarchical" views of women in ministry. Each contributor offers thoroughly qualified insights based on careful biblical scholarship and personal experience. At the end of each of the four essays, a brief question-and-answer section provides further clarification. The general editor adds a commentary at the conclusion of both the hierarchical and egalitarian sections. Contributors Include: Linda L. Belleville (Egalitarian View) Craig L. Blomberg (Complementarian View) Craig S. Keener (Egalitarian View) Thomas R. Schreiner (Complementarian View)
