The Role of Women in Ministry Today by H. Wayne House

Print

Wayne House has written an excellent book taking the conservative approach to the involvement of women in Christian ministry. Of the books that I have read on the subject this is easily the best. House is a clear analytical thinker who writes well, and thoroughly covers his subject. The book examines the role of women in history, both secular and ecclesiastical; lays out the battle lines that have formed in today’s church; and effectively deals with the key New Testament passages on the subject (I Cor 11:1-16; 14:33-36; I Tim 2:8-15 and Gal 3:28). In addition he offers hundred of footnotes for the student who wants to dig a little deeper. My only criticism is that he danced around the “head covering” issue of I Cor 11.
