Complementarity Without Hierarchy

Among Christians, discussions continue about the roles of men and women in the home, the church and society at large. Although some of these debates generate more heat than light, the issue directly affects every member of the Christian community. Our view of the Bible's teaching on these matters shapes the life and ministry of our churches in significant ways. Further reflection and dialogue are required.
In this volume twenty-three evangelical scholars, firmly committed to the authority of Scripture, explore the whole range of issues relating to gender relations. They offer historical, biblical, theological, hermeneutical and practical perspectives to dispel many of the myths surrounding biblical equality, and to promote discussion. Their sound, reasoned case affirms the complementarity of the sexes without requiring a hierarchy of roles.
