Ministry of Women in the New Testament
Respected scholar Dorothy Lee considers evidence from the New Testament and early church to show that women's ministry is confirmed by the biblical witness.
Her comprehensive examination explores the roles women played in the Gospels and the Pauline corpus, with a particular focus on passages that have been used in the past to limit women's ministry.
She argues that women in the New Testament were not only valued as disciples but also given leadership roles, which has implications for the contemporary church.
