Why Not Women : A Biblical Study of Women in Missions, Ministry, and Leadership Reviews
This book sat next to my bed for months, once I opened it, I could not put it down. I started to underline amazing points within the first few pages and ended up under lining about 1/8 th of the entire book! I hesitate to say this for sounding nuts but this is the best book I have EVER read. It teaches me why everything I knew in my heart to be true is true. One point alone, headship. The "head" of the woman is the man verse is explained that the word "head" in Greek is the head of a river, not the head on a body. So head translated more accurately would be "origin" as in the man is the origin of the woman and Christ is the Origin of the church. Wow! That is only one of hundreds of gold nuggets of wisdom in this book. One complaint is the cover, I did not pick it up because it looked cheesy with the women on the front. Also, it would be rare for a man to pick up and read a book with women on the front and men who do not think woman should be in ministry or be pastors, MUST read this book. Change cover to be masculine for more distribution. I have read over ten books about women in ministry, this is by FAR the best one. Order it now! Rev. Tracy Galloway
This is an excellent book! Everyone in church leadership both men and women should read this book. From the days of Adam and Eve, God created them equal. However, women have suffered greatly because of mythical beliefs. God calls us all to ministry both women and men alike. This book is filled with so much information you will find yourself chewing on the information of each chapter before you can move on to the next. I have compared it to the likes of three years of college rolled into 242 pages. You will not regret reading this book. Be enlightened! See what you've been missing.
This review is mainly to let people know that the Kindle version is incomplete. The book is missing the last chapter!! and it refers to several diagrams and charts that are not included. The footnotes also seem to be incomplete and only include chapters 1-8. SO frustrating!
This is one of the best explanations Scripturally why women should be equal to men in church ministry. The Scriptures that address this issue are very carefully exegeted and explained in cultural context. A must read for all who think women should not preach, teach, or prophecy. And an encouragement for all others.
This is a clearly refreshing looking at the topic of women and women in ministry. So many of those who teach on this topic actually forget the character and nature of God the Father, our Lord Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. Men tragically feel threatened by confident secure women and for centuries men, mostly, have virtually chained women to the kitchen sink and obscurity. This book which has been exceedingly well researched and referenced could easily be a must for all theologians. Unfortunately many of them will probably dismiss it out of hand.
Excellent! This book is the most comprehensive I've read on the topic of women in leadership. There's been much confusion over the years in regards to the Bible's view of women in ministry and leadership. I truly wish pastors would teach on this on Sunday's. So many women feel sidelined while making up the majority of the congregation.
I have bought more copies of this book than I can count! I always recommend it to anyone who wants any clarity on the subject. As the founder of YWAM, surely Loren Cunningham has propelled more women into ministry than any other, so he speaks with authority. His co-author is a Hebrew and Greek scholar. I met both of them personally at a conference last year and was so struck by their humility, grace and authority.
Should Women be in Ministry (up front) or NOT? That's a question that has been batted around denominations for quite awhile. Cunningham (head of Youth with a Mission) does a GREAT job making this prayerful investigation of some difficult passages clear and understandable. A good read for each of us. May your thinking and theology be stretched!
