Item Description...
Overview
This painstaking work will enlighten people on all sides of the issue, though Stanley Grenz makes no secret of his bold conclusion. Historical, bibical, and theoological considerations, he writes, converge not only in allowing, but also in insisting, that women serve as full partners with men in the work of the church.

Publishers Description
Studies of key biblical passages on women's roles in the church fill entire bookshelves, if not libraries. But in Women in the Church, Stanley Grenz and Denise Muir Kjesbo offer the first in-depth theological study of this issue--one of the most bitterly contested issues of our day. Carefully considering the biblical, historical and practical concerns surrounding women and the ordained ministry, this book will enlighten people on all sides of the issue. But Grenz and Kjesbo make no secret of their bold conclusion: 'Historical, biblical and theological considerations converge not only in allowing, but also in insisting, that women serve as full partners with men.' Thorough and irenic, Women in the Church bids to take an intense discussion to a new plane.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Just not compelling  Mar 7, 2008
I approached this book hoping that it could give a biblical rationale for egalitarianism, but it couldn't. Instead it gave the same old philosophical tirade: different in role = different in worth. When are folks going to figure out that the argument just doesn't follow? Economic (role) subordination does not necessitate ontological disparity and ontological equality does not necessitate functional sameness. The only thing that writers could do is try to re-interpret Paul's words in a way that they clearly weren't written. It was an unfortunate read.
 
An exegetically solid book  Feb 24, 2006
I read this book as part of a Bible study and found it to be a very helpful resource. Grenz and Kjesbo go into thorough detail looking at the "problem texts" facing women in ministry today, keeping a very solid, honest exegesis of the Word of God. Even as both authors are unapologetic about subscribing to an egalitarian view of women in ministry (believing that women should be allowed to participate in ministry without imposing constraints beyond what is expected of their male co-laborers), both the egalitarian and complementarian views receive a fair and respectful assessment based on an honest reading of scripture.

I would recommend this book for anyone seriously interested in studying out the issue of women in ministry. Because of the thoroughness of the book--investigations into the original languages, outlining of various stances and debates, and the citing of numerous outside sources--it is an extremely helpful study resource, although it would not serve as well for a casual read. Even so, the tone of the book is such that the reader does not need to be a theologian in order to appreciate it. This book sets a good scriptural foundation for a study of women in ministry, and I believe men and women alike will benefit from reading it.
 
A Respectful, Convincing Treatment of the Subject  Nov 13, 2001
"Historical, biblical, and theological considerations", writes Stanley J. Grenz "converge not only in allowing, but also in insisting, that women serve as full partners with men" in the work of the Christian church. His book (coauthored with Denise Muir Kjesbo), Women in the Church: A Biblical Theology of Women in Ministry is one of the best- perhaps THE best treatment I've ever read on the subject of women's roles in churches, marriage, and family.

Grenz and Kjesbo are always respectful toward those who espouse a hierarchy for church and family based on gender roles, but their case for an egalitarian theology of women's roles is extremely thorough and compelling.

While I recommend Grenz and Kjesbo's Women in the Church as perhaps the best example of the superior scholarship being performed today by egalitarian theologians and expositors, two other treatments deserve mention. Gretchen Gaebelein Hull's Equal to Serve (1987) and Rebecca Merrill Groothuis's Good News for Women (1997) treat the subject admirably.

 
Christians and non-Christians must read  Jul 27, 2001
This book truley explaines where women fit in in the church.
