Item Description...
An idea growing in popularity among some Orthodox over the last few decades has been the admission of women to the sacerdotal priesthood. The source for this idea is not the Scriptures, the Fathers, the Councils of the Church, but comes to us from the world, specifically the feminist movement. It has implications for the secularization of the Church. On one level, advocates view the ordination of women as something owed the female sex, a sign of the Church's repentance, so to speak, atonement for the centuries of female stereotyping and powerlessness, that is to say, denying her the right to creatively express her ingenuity, to exercise her freedom and to exhibit her dedication. Not unaware of the objections in holy Tradition to the ordination of women to the presbytery (and consecration to the episcopacy), the strategy of its proponents is to declare this innovation an "open question." It is, in fact, not a subject to be debated. The theological and ecclesial facts need only to be reviewed to make the point. This book provides an understanding of those facts based on the only authorities (criteria) available to us - the Scriptures, the Fathers and the Canons. They have unalterably defined the place of women in the Church from the beginning.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Vigorous Defence of Tradition  Jan 18, 2008
Fr. Michael Azkoul vigorously defends the Tradition of the Orthodox Church in this answer to both extreme and moderate elements in society pushing for admission of women into Christ's priesthood. The book examines the issue from the perspective of the Church's traditions, canons, and commentary of its saints. While this approach is welcome, I refrain from giving it five stars, because it could have addressed the Holy Scripture's teaching on this issue in more depth. Also, as an Oriental Orthodox layperson without much of a window into the happenings and factions within the other Orthodox churches, I felt this book offered too much information concerning the dissension within them. I would have been contented with the Orthodox Church's answer to this issue without the references to politics, but that is just my personal preference.

In summary, anyone seeking to understand this issue from the Orthodox perspective is well-advised to read this book.
not bad  Dec 5, 2007
author does attack subject with great vigor but fails to address the growing number of those who are transgendered and transexual who wish to enter the priesthood.
No holds barred  Jul 25, 2007
If you are looking for a no-holds-barred defense of the priesthood as male-only than this is it. While written by, for, and from the perspective of the Orthodox, all the points apply equally well if not better for Catholics. There is no equivocation and the points are made rather bluntly. There is no sugar-coating or pussy-footing around in this book. The case in favor of the male-only priesthood is made in a clear and reasoned manner. Be forewarned that the forceful and somewhat authorative manner of the book my be off-putting to some but that is the only manner in which such an important topic can be addessed if one truly believes the Church.
