Why Not Women?
Why Not Women : A Biblical Study of Women in Missions, Ministry, and Leadership
The authors combine biblical truth with historical and cultural awareness as they examine the place of women in missions, ministry, and leadership. The book includes a detailed study of women in Scripture and difficult passages relating to women, as well as teaching on the original cultures and languages of the Bible.
Loren Cunningham has been teaching on the subject of women in ministry for over thirty years. Youth With A Mission—the interdenominational international mission he founded with his wife, Darlene—has led in releasing people to obey God's call: young people, laypersons, short-term workers, non-Western missionaries, and women. Having ministered in every nation of the world, Loren knows firsthand how much hinges on the question Why Not Women?
David Joel Hamilton is a veteran missionary and scholar who wrote his master's thesis on the difficult Bible passages related to the ministry of women, an extensive work in which he cites some four hundred books and articles.
Janice Rogers lives with her husband, Jim, in Lindale, Texas, where they are pioneering a communications training center, Youth With A Mission Woodcrest. They have three grown sons who all are working with YWAM. Janice is also the sister of Loren Cunningham, with whom she has written three other books.

Highly recommended! Distills complex historical, cultural and biblical information into an easily readable and understandable format. I will be able to recommend this to those who are beginning to seek understanding of God's intention for women as they pursue Him.
