Did Paul forbid women to exercise leadership and teaching gifts or was he dealing with a particular error in the church? In this fascinating look at 1 Timothy 2:11-15, the Kroegers argue that Paul was dealing with a specific problem, a myth taught almost exclusively by women, that was sweeping churches and was to become a foundation for gnosticism. They point to leaders such as Deborah and Lydia and examine a range of archaeological and textual evidence. Here is solid ground for Christians who affirm the authority of Scripture, yet struggle with Paul's apparent disbarment of women from leadership. Whether or not the reader accepts the Kroegers conclusions, this book is important reading for all who wish to be fully informed about the current arguments in the debate over women's ministry. The authors have opened windows to shed fresh light on one of New Testaments painfully puzzling passages. Their thorough research in the life and language of the Greco-Roman world combines with a clarity of expression and a sensitivity to theological issues that will commend their work to all who care about biblical authority and the ministries of Christian women. -David A Hubbard.

Solid scriptural evidence and a close look at historical context refute the traditional interpretation used to bar women from leadership.

"A fascinating study on the backgrounds of ancient Ephesus and of the church to which Paul wrote the one biblical statement that is invoked the most frequently to deny Christian women the use of their spiritual gifts. . . . It will now become impossible to interpret legitimately the Pauline prohibition without recourse to this valuable resource."--Gilbert Bilezikian, professor of biblical studies emeritus, Wheaton College "Working from a wide range of primary sources, I Suffer Not a Woman draws the reader into ancient-world thought patterns. The authors provide a compelling case for interpreting the text in 1 Timothy as a refutation of false teaching, rather than as a narrow restriction on women's role. . . . This book must be taken seriously and deserves a wide audience."--Gretchen Gaebelein Hull, author of Equal to Serve
