Restoring women to their God-given role in the church
Genre: Christian theology, Gender studies: women
Author: Richard Bradbury
Equality between the sexes is extending beyond words and into action. It now means equal pay and opportunities to study and progress in any career. This new awakening is beginning to open up new vistas of possibility for women. However, in the church, the subject of women and leadership remains a thorny issue.
'The Great Beyond' tackles the arguments that have restricted the roles women can play in the church. In this book, author, Richard Bradbury challenges the position of the church, and in particular the New Churches with respect to female leadership. Arguing from the basis of Biblical exegesis, as well as sociological evidence, he presents a compelling case for allowing and enabling women to rise up into their God-given gifting and calling without any restrictions.
