Product Description

In the book Women in the Church, Dr. Bacchiocchi provides a much needed balanced interpretation and application of the overall Biblical teachings on the role of women in the church. The reason for this Biblical distinction derives not from the cultural conventions of the times, but from the distinct and yet complimentary roles for men and women established by God at creation.
