Rarely does a book earn the status of the definitive work on any subject as quickly as "Women in the Church." Heralded by scholars and theologians like D.A. Carson, Scott Hafemann, Peter T. O'Brien and John Piper. The design of this book is to walk a reader through all the various hermeneutical and exegetical stages in interpreting any text of Scripture. The reader is expertly guided through stages like historical research, genre analysis, word study, syntactical analysis, etc. . . The real challenged posed by this book is not ideological but exegetical. You may not like the conclusions of the contributors, but their conclusions result from careful, detailed, and sound exegesis. This book is the standard exegetical work on 1 Timothy 2:9-15 and has yet to meet any serious rival. In fact, because of its enduring contribution a revised second edition is slated for publication.
