My review: Phew! This is a heavy book and not an easy read. nike air huarache As a Christian, wife, mom, daughter who has some very strong thoughts on the topic of women in the church, I was eager to get my hands on this book and see what the authors had to say. I wasn’t disappointed at all. I’m going through it now for the second time, in fact, because it’s such a “scholarly” read, it was tough to get through quickly in order to post a review. There are some of you who will take a look at this book and discard it because the passage discussed is controversial in the church, to say the least, and you’ve already formed an opinion/conviction on the topic and don’t want to take the time to read through this. I get that. But I do think the information in most of the chapters is worth a look, particularly if you hold a view of women teaching men in the church is biblical. Don’t want the heavy word studies, etc., then just skip those chapters and chew on the rest of it a bit to see what you think. Then, if you’re challenged to see if the authors are really onto something, pull the information from the skipped chapters for some support. nike air presto femme bordeaux I do think this is a must read for pastors and elders in any conservative church, but for most lay people I think it’ll be a bit too much to take in unless that person feels particularly led to study up on the topic of women in the church. So, all that to say, it’s a great book but not for everyone. The chapters are well written and not too terribly long and amazingly detailed in their references (some chapters have more pages of footnotes than actual reading!) Take a look, have Amazon send you the sample for free on Kindle and see what you think! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way nor was I required to post a positive review.
