Download or read Women and Men in Ministry PDF, written by Robert L. Saucy and published by Moody Publishers. This book was released on 2001-05-01 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The role of women in the church is a debate that has raged within the church for much of the twentieth century. On one side are those who say there is no difference between men and women. On the other side are those who severely limit women who want to offer ministry to the church. Judith TenElshof and Robert Saucy take the middle approach. Believing that the modern views have denied the distinctions between men and women, the authors adopt a view called complementarianism. TenElshof and Saucy argue that while men and women are equal, God has given different roles to each and that these roles rely on each other to be fully effective.
Download or read Women and Men in Scripture and the Church PDF, written by Steven Croft and published by Hymns Ancient and Modern Ltd. This book was released on 2013-03-26 with total page 121 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The recent vote on women bishops in the Church of England remains significant as it is about far more than whether or not women should exercise a particular ministry. It is about how we view one another as sisters and brothers within the Body of Christ, about the structuring of our family life, and about how we relate the wider world. This accessible guide to the Bible's teaching on the roles of men and women in the creation accounts, in society and family life, in the Gospels and in the Early church will help the Church urgently recover a sense that the message of the Christian faith is good news - for men, for women and for society around. It can be used for individual reading, for group study or as the basis for a series of sermons. Each chapter contains a Bible passage, an introduction that sets out the key issues, an invitation to reflect prayerfully on the biblical passage, insights based on current biblical scholarship and an exploration of contemporary application. Each chapter ends with discussion questions and for prayer.

This book was released on 2023-02-24 with total page 153 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Moving from Hegemony to Partnership in Leadership When God created women and men, the intention was for them to be partners with each other and to serve in the world as cocreators with God. The story of human beings, however, has been impacted with culture and other social factors to create different forms of hegemonies. These hegemonies have been key in values that create social injustices that are in all spheres of life but more so in women and men relationships. In cases of leadership and in many cultures, men have adopted attitudes that justify exclusion of women from leadership. In religious circles, it is justified by the ways texts are read and interpreted through the lens of culture. If we begin from the premises of justice and believing in a God of justice, then hegemonic ways of understating leadership should be null and void. Acknowledging that human beings are created in the image and likeness of God demands that we act differently. What this has meant is to challenge injustice in leadership by men and women in partnership. The circle of concerned African women theologians in Africa, where Rev. Edith Chemorion is a member, has, over the years, provided safe spaces for mentoring women to research and write about the experiences of women but much more so to call for justice in all areas, including the study of theological education and for leadership in the churches. This has borne results because of the partnership of men and women. Reverend Edith's contributions to the rallying call is that society moves from hegemony to partnership in all fronts, but especially in offering leadership by all. We are strong when we partner, and we image God's will for society in partnership. Prof. Esther Mombo Lecturer, Faculty of Theology St. Paul's University, Limuru, Kenya
Download or read How Women Help Men Find God PDF, written by David Murrow and published by Thomas Nelson. This book was released on 2008-05-06 with total page 258 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Help for women to understand men's spiritual needs, why today's church doesn't meet them, and how to successfully point them to God. Women don't understand men's spiritual needs but they want to and desperately need to know what they can do (and should not do) to keep their men engaged at church. In the follow-up to his bestselling Why Men Hate Going to Church, author David Murrow speaks directly to women to help them understand the real reasons men resist Christianity. He offers a way of talking about faith that intrigues men instead of repels them and then challenges them to bring more risk and adventure to their own walk with the Lord.

Download or read Women s Ordination in the Catholic Church PDF, written by John O'Brien and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2020-07-30 with total page 212 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Women’s Ordination in the Catholic Church argues that women can be validly ordained to ministerial office. O’Brien shows that claims by Roman dicasteries for an unbroken chain of authoritative tradition on the non-ordainability of women—a novel rather than traditional argument—are not historically supported. In the primitive Church, with the offices of deacon, presbyter, and bishop in process of development, women exercised ministries later understood as pertaining to those offices. The sub-apostolic period downplayed women’s ministry for reasons of cultural adaptation, not because it was thought that fidelity to Christ required it. Furthermore, extensive epigraphical evidence, from a wide geographical area, references women deacons and presbyters during the first millennium. Restrictive developments in the concept of ordination from the twelfth century onwards do not negate how, before that, women were validly ordained according to contemporary ecclesial understanding. Repeated canonical prohibitions on ordaining women show both that women were being ordained and how those bans were very selectively implemented. These canons were a cultural practice in search of a theology, and the subsequent theological justifications for restricting ordination to men appealed to supposed female inferiority against the background of priesthood as eminence rather than service. O’Brien shows that the assertion of women’s non-ordainability is a matter of canon law rather than doctrine. As such, that law can be reformed.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Coherent Pauline Theology of Gender Respected New Testament scholar Cynthia Long Westfall offers a coherent Pauline theology of gender, which includes fresh perspectives on the most controverted texts. Westfall interprets passages on women and men together and places those passages in the context of the Pauline corpus as a whole. She offers viable alternatives for some notorious interpretive problems in certain Pauline passages, reframing gender issues in a way that stimulates thinking, promotes discussion, and moves the conversation forward. As Westfall explores the significance of Paul's teaching on both genders, she seeks to support and equip males and females to serve in their area of gifting.
