Revisit women’s roles in church by revisiting scripture.

There’s a lot more in the Bible to give us guidance on the role of women in the church than a couple of verses in I Corinthians 14 and I Timothy 2. In fact, those two passages go against the flow of the rest of the New Testament and need to be explored as anomalies, not as the norm. God’s Woman Revisited can help with that. Beginning with Genesis, then considering Jesus’ countercultural attitude toward women, and finally addressing the challenging passages in Paul, this fresh biblical look at the topic provides some new insights that might surprise you.

For the serious Bible student.

This original version, of which the Pocket Edition is an abridgement, is a comprehensive 350-page study of the relevant passages in both testaments. Based on many years of research as reflected in its 500 footnotes and 300-reference bibliography, it is more suitable for the serious Bible student than for the average reader. It provides a fresh examination of key biblical passages without the baggage of centuries of unquestioned interpretations or the contamination of reading our world into that of the Bible. On the principle that a correct understanding of the original writer’s words in context is the underpinning of contemporary application, the book seeks to assist the modern reader with this current application by providing conclusions about the early church’s practice arrived at through careful examination of the biblical text.
