Just Ordered

As I mentioned the other night, I just taught on women in ministry, and I’ll be covering the same subject next Wednesday. My pastor wants me to write an article for our church’s website so he can direct people who have questions on our position to it. I don’t want to just throw something together so I’m going to take a little time to really do this right. That means I’ll need some good reference material to supplement my exegesis. So I just ordered the following books to help in the task:

The Letters of Timothy and Titus (NICNT) — Philip H. Towner

Two Views on Women in Ministry — Keener, Belleville, Schreiner, Bowman

Discovering Biblical Equality: Complementarity Without Hierarchy — Pierce, et al., eds.

I’ll be consulting some other books that I already have like Ben Witherington’s Women in the Earliest Churches; Piper & Grudem’s Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood; Grudem’s Biblical Foundations for Manhood and Womanhood; and his Evangelical Feminism: A New Path to Liberalism?; as well as Gordon Fee’s NIBC commentary on the Pastoral Epistles. I wish I could consult George Knight’s NIGTC commentary but I can’t afford it this month. Even still, I think that with all of these books I have a pretty good representation of both sides of the debate, and it should be more than enough to write up a good article.

  1. Nick, do you already own the second edition of Kostenberger and Schreiner’s Women in the Church: An Analysis and Application of 1 Timothy 2:9-15? I would think that book would be indispensable if you want to read the more pertinent issues raised by the other side. God bless.

  2. Yvette: Thanks, I’ll keep that one in mind.

    Geoff: I’d like to have it just to have it, plus I know he’s firmly in the complementarian camp, so it would be good to get his take on 1 Tim. 2:8-15.

    Hodge: I don’t have that one but it’s cited in a lot of the literature that I do have. I’ll have to add it at some point in the future.
