Front Cover
Eerdmans, Jan 1, 1980 - Religion - 148 pages
"This new essay might well be read before tackling the biblical passages, for here the air is cleared over traditional habits of thought which may obscure the witness of Scripture itself.. . .its gentle and straightforward style can do much to move the discussion along." -- Theology Today In this book, Jewett argues that on the basis of the Christian ideal of the partnership of the sees, women ought to share fully with men the privileges and responsibilities of church ministry. Paul K. Jewett (1919-1991) was professor of systematic theology at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. He also wrote Man as Male and Female and God, Creation, and Revelation.
