This book gives the biblical answers to some of the most complex and controversial questions in women's ministry. Does God choose only men to lead, teach, and preach? What is God's vision for women in ministry? What do the Bible, the Jewish Talmud, and early Christian writings really mean about women in ministry? Did the apostle Paul and the early Christians dismiss the spiritual gifts of women? Are women today defying Scripture?--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
