This book is a careful exegetical examination of Paul’s teachings regarding women and their standing and ministries in the church and home. It is the condensation of 35 years of research on this topic and is full of insights that shed new light on a host of issues and correct many misconceptions. This work rigorously analyzes both the text of Paul’s statements and the meaning of the text through penetrating exegetical study. It affirms the complete reliability of all of Paul’s teaching.
The work begins with an examination of the influences on Paul, then it explores Paul’s many statements about women who were his colleagues in ministry and Paul’s theological principles that undergird his affirmations of the equal standing of man and women in Christ. In light of Paul’s practice, it examines each of Paul’s statements regarding the standing of women and their ministry in the church.
The book concludes that Paul is consistent in both his practice and his principles, affirming the equal standing of man and woman in Christ.
