God's Woman Revisited

Women and the Church

NOW Available in Paperback and eBook formats

Under the influence of longstanding traditional interpretations, poor interpretive methods have misconstrued relevant biblical passages, with the unfortunate result of placing unwarranted restrictions on women in the modern church. This puts the church unnecessarily at odds with its culture, alienates our young people, squelches the enormous spiritual energy of our women, and has become an obstacle to the reception of the Gospel. If this troubles you, but the insistence by others that the only faithful way of reading the Bible is to support the traditional limitations on women in the church, this book invites you to think again. God’s Woman Revisited is the fruition of years—actually most of a lifetime—of study of the key biblical texts in their own context with some results that may surprise you.
