Discussions surrounding the roles of men and
women--whether in the church, the home or society at large—never seem to end,
often generating more heat than light. Such debate is still important, though,
because this issue directly affects every member of Christ's body. What we
believe the Bible teaches on these matters shapes nearly all we do in the
church. In addition, these questions deserve further thought and reflection
because neither side has won the day.
In an effort to further discussion, Ronald W. Pierce and Rebecca Merrill
Groothuis (general editors), with the aid of Gordon D. Fee (contributing
editor), have assembled a distinguished array of twenty-six evangelical scholars
firmly committed to the authority of Scripture to explore the whole range of
issues—historical, biblical, theological, hermeneutical and practical. While
dispelling many of the myths surrounding biblical equality, they offer a sound,
reasoned case that affirms the complementarity of the sexes without requiring a
hierarchy of roles.
Contributors include Ruth A. Tucker, Janette Hassey, Richard S. Hess, Linda L.
Belleville, Aída Besançon Spencer, Craig S. Keener, I. Howard Marshall, Peter H.
Davids, Walter L. Liefeld, Stanley J. Grenz, Kevin Giles, Roger Nicole, William
J. Webb, Sulia Mason, Karen Mason, Joan Burgess Winfrey, Judith K. Balswick,
Jack O. Balswick, Cynthia Neal Kimball, Mimi Haddad, Alvera Micklesen, R. K.
McGregor Wright and Alice P. Mathews.
