Sometimes we need to read larger chunks of the Bible more quickly. And sometimes we need to drill down into a single chapter or verse. Either way, our goal is to understand clearly what God has spoken, so we can know him and live for his good pleasure.Because too much study of verses-in-isolation can give us a mistaken picture of God's intentions, my interest lies more with the first, broad type of reading. But I'm also committed to regularly studying small portions of text, in context, to gain [...]

Read for forthcoming review. Excellent resource reworked for a third edition. Really great and very helpful.

I specially ordered this book for the purposes of writing a paper on 1 Tim. 2:9-15 as part of course requirements for a Systematic Theology course. I sought to give the text a fair treatment, and as best as I can, resist the inclinations of allowing my presuppositions to influence my understanding and interpretation.This book should get a more stars by complementarian reviwers and less stars from the egalitarian reviwers. Therefore I would like to disclose that my view of women in ministry is cl [...]

A solid, well developed and well-rounded analysis of a difficult passage of the New Testament. Helped me develop my personal reading of the passage but difficult to get through because I have never studied Greek. More academic than I anticipated but worth the read. I'll read it again.

Crossay recently published the third edition (1995, 2005, 2016) of Women in the Church: An Interpretation & Application of 1 Timothy 2:9–15 by editors Andreas J. Köstenberger & Thomas R. Schreiner. This is not a collection of articles from differing positions; to the contrary, it intentionally and thoroughly espouses a complementarian position by all contributors. This volume focuses more on attempts to thwart the ever-increasing egalitarian position rather than provide sufficient and [...]

Reading Challenge 2016: Book about the ChurchIn recent months, I received a free copy of the book Women in the Church: An Interpretation and Application of 1 Timothy 2:9-15 by Andreas J. Kostenberger, from Crossway Publishers, in exchange for an honest review of this third edition.This book is not light reading. I'm nerdy; I like the academic-ness of this volume. But fair warning to anyone who picks this up looking for a quick treatment of the subject of women and the church: you will not breeze [...]

While I thoroughly enjoyed the 2nd edition (see my review at /review/show/), I was honestly disappointed with the quality of the 3rd edition. I felt that the 2nd edition was a trailblazer in setting the parameters of the modern debate in Western theological academic circles, the 3rd edition has been reduced to a slightly pitiful defensive posture. If I could borrow terminology from debating, the 3rd edition contributes more negative material (rebuttals) than positive matter (substantives). Thoma [...]

Phew! This is a heavy book and not an easy read. As a Christian, wife, mom, daughter who has some very strong thoughts on the topic of women in the church, I was eager to get my hands on this book and see what the authors had to say. I wasn't disappointed at all. I'm going through it now for the second time, in fact, because it's such a "scholarly" read, it was tough to get through quickly in order to post a review.There are some of you who will take a look at this book and discard it because th [...]

This is definitely a go-to, resource book for discussing Biblical ideas about gender roles and women's ordination. It doesn't flush out every avenue in real life, but all scholarly angles are covered. The footnotes are vast and detailed. Robert Yarborough's chapter on cultural presuppositions is worth the price of the book alone. I really need to find out if he's read Deep Exegesis: The Mystery of Reading Scripture, because it seems to go over the same ground but in a different way.

This book is, hands down, the definitive exegetical study on what Paul does and does not say about women and their role in the church, with even some feminist scholars responding with the affirmation that it is indeed a correct exposition of Paul.

Very helpful and thorough resource on the topic. Nearly half the book is taken up with endnotes.

Highly recommended for anyone dealing with 1 Timothy 2:9-15.

Detailed examination of 1 Timothy 2:9-15.
