A Woman's Place?

Leadership in the Church

Theme: Women
About This Product "Women have achieved relative parity with men in virtually every area of society--except the church," writes C.S. Cowles, challenging the long-held practice and belief that a Christian woman's place is in the pew but not in the pulpit, lectern, boardroom, or other places of leadership. Through a careful study of key biblical texts, Cowles refutes what he terms the church's "institutional discrimination against women" and calls for it to open leadership positions to "whomever the Holy Spirit should call and whomever evidences gifts for public ministry, without regard to race, social class, or gender." "It is time for the church to discover the richness, beauty, and spiritual power that can be released only through the full expression of women's unique gifts and special sensitivities."
