In Women Leaders and the Church, author Linda L. Belleville addresses the issues that have polarized Christians for generations. She discusses the three major questions surrounding the controversy: In which ministries can women be involved? What roles should women play in society? Can women hold positions of authority in the church?
Belleville looks to the past for answers to these contemporary questions. She examines Greek, Roman, and Jewish societies and compares women’s roles in those cultures to their roles in the early church. With careful scholarship and logical argumentation, she concludes that God gifts women and men equally. Both men and women will benefit from the historical analysis and modern implications of Women Leaders and the Church.
