    Rediscovering Scripture's Vision for Women

    Fresh Perspectives on Disputed Texts

    by Lucy Peppiatt
    Foreword by Scot McKnight

    Does God call women to serve as equal partners in marriage and as leaders in the church? With careful exegetical work, Lucy Peppiatt considers relevant passages in Ephesians, Colossians, 1 Peter, 1 Timothy, and 1 Corinthians. There she finds a story of God releasing women alongside men into all forms of ministry, leadership, work, and service on the basis of character and gifting, rather than biological sex.

    Tyndale New Testament Commentaries

    by Darrell L. Bock
    Series Editor Eckhard J. Schnabel
    Consulting Editor Nicholas Perrin
