Some Presbyterian Denominations have made the mistake of treating the ordination of women as of primary importance and ministers who take a different view, based not on male chauvinism but on their understanding of Scripture, have been forced to resign their charges and leave their denomination. Whilst it is right and proper for such denominations to protect the position of women whom they have agreed ought to be ordained, is it moral to do that at the expense of men who have conscientious and scriptural objections?
Those who are interested in this whole debate, especially within Presbyterian circles will find this new book, written by four Presbyterian ministers in the Church of Scotland, helpful in at least understanding their views on the matter . . . One of the lovely aspects . . . is the gracious spirit in which the authors write.
The issue of WOMEN ELDERS IN THE KIRK is not a simple one. A variety of positions have been taken up, even among evangelicals, and many different routes have been followed in reaching these positions. In this book, the authors seek liberty of conscience for those who are unable or unwilling to participate in the ordination of women. It is the sincere hope of the authors that this book may help to avoid confrontation in the Church of Scotland by drawing attention to the issues involved and by suggesting ways in which the situation could be handled. The authors are all ordained ministers of the Church of Scotland.^
