Does God want women in the pulpit or the pews? Jim Reiher makes no secret of where he stands on one of the Church’s most vexed issues. He uses the Bible to argue that women’s gifts are to be affirmed. Timely and thought provoking, this book offers readers a fresh look at this controversial topic.

Jim Reiher is a full-time lecturer in New Testament and Church History at Tabor College in Victoria. His spare time is taken up with writing, political activity, and editing a web-based Christian journal. His previously published books are: The Message in the Tarot: With selections from the sacred writings (ISBN 0-646-35372-1, self-published 1998) and The Eye of the Needle: Discipleship and wealth (ISBN 0-9580602-4-X, Urban Neighbourhood of Hope 2005).

Comments: ‘The role of women in church leadership and the marriage relationship has become a touchstone of orthodoxy for many Christians. Jim Reiher’s careful and well-documented Biblical analysis is helpful, practical and spiritually sensitive. This is a timely book.’
