Women in Ministry
Biblical and Historical Perspectives
Edited by Nancy Vyhmeister
$ 19.99

An ad hoc committee on hermeneutics and ordination from the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary provides thoughtful answers to good questions:

Why ordain elders and pastors? What does the Bible teach about priesthood and ministry? Does Paul really prohibit women from speaking in church? What does Ellen White say about ordination? What role did women play in ministry in the New Testament? How is ordination related to the ministry? How does culture influence the way we understand the Bible? Does the Bible forbid the ordination of women? What does the Bible teach about "headship"? How did Ellen White relate to the Women's Rights Movement? Who were some of the nineteenth-century Adventist women in ministry and what did they do?
