The Gender Agenda
Full Product Description
Yet different models still exist in Christian ministry. Some denominations contend that certain areas of church life should be the preserve of men alone, while others allow full access to all areas for both sexes. But which is right?
In this compelling email exchange, Lis Goddard and Clare Hendry search the Scriptures for guidance on the roles of women and men in church leadership today. Against the busy backdrop of everyday life, their conversation covers all the key passages, leaving no tricky verse unexamined. Passionately arguing their respective corners, they pinpoint where they disagree - and agree - all the while modelling Christian debate and friendship.
Points to ponder helpfully enable readers to explore their own conclusions.
The Gender Agenda by Clare Hendry; Elisabeth Goddard was published by Inter-Varsity Press in October 2010 and is our 21401st best seller. The ISBN for The Gender Agenda is 9781844744947.

The Gender AgendaJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
Ministry can polarise, and gender has all too often been a defining factor: rightly or wrongly! The breadth of whether women can be bishops or even open-their-mouths in church today is covered ably in this attractive and significant new IVP publication. In this email exchange, Lis Goddard and Clare Hendry search the scriptures for guidance on the roles of women and men in church leadership today. Against the busy backdrop of everyday life, their conversation covers all the key passages, leaving no scripture unexamined. Passionately reasoning their respective corners, they outline agreement and disagreement well. Goddard & Hendry have a deep love of the Bible and their conversation with each other is respectful, robust and profound. The emails are set in the context of the realities of their lives and the intersection of family, work and personal concerns with the theological issues they are wrestling with. This is not a dry academic debate; it is rooted in the identity and passion of two women wanting to serve God to the best of their ability, being true to what they believe God is calling them to in his word. While neither changes their mind by the close of the exchange, they are able to affirm what unites them and both call for women to be encouraged to use their gifts in the work of God’s kingdom.
Fully thought through in a comprehensive yet heavy-spirited manner. There is added value in the glossary: the foundational quality to the spirit of dialogue offered here and alongside the 'ponder & prayer' paragraphs, this is a significant and potent summary in the complex challenges of the gender challenge for Christ's church today. Comprehensive, engaging and progressive!
