:The Bible says that women should keep silent in church and that they should pray and prophesy. It calls wives the weaker partner and says that men and women are equal.When it comes to understanding what Scripture says about men and women, those on both sides of the debate can and do marshal strong evidence from the Bible. Why are they able to do this? John Stackhouse boldly contends it is because Scripture in fact says both things. Does the Bible contradict itself then? Not so. Rather Stackhouse describes the single approach in Scripture that guides us with clear direction on these important matters of relationships in the church and the family.Are you looking for an approach that takes the whole Bible into account and not just bits and pieces of it? While treating Scripture with utmost seriousness, Stackhouse moves us all beyond the impasse in this important debate.
John G. Stackhouse, Jr. (Ph.D., University of Chicago) is Sangwoo Youtong Chee Professor of Theology and Culture at Regent College, Vancouver. He is the author or editor of ten books, including Humble Apologetics; Can God Be Trusted?; No Other Gods before Me?; Evangelical Ecclesiology; and Evangelical Landscapes.
