Paul Elbert: Pastoral Letter to Theo


Elbert eloquently shows the textual cohesion of the many uses and references to women in ministry.

This book is a powerful resource for seasoned pastors and young women, who question the role women in the body of Christ due to the often ludicrous and blatant disregard for scripture that has resulted from the lack of a proper grammatical-historical or narrative-rhetorical method of interpretation. It is agreed with Elbert’s bold remark that these individuals need to consider giving an account before God for the damage done to the church as a result of their unexamined and uninvestigated assumptions (63). He adequately supports his thesis and solidly proves that the notion of forbidding women from taking part in the five-fold Gospel ministry is without biblical foundation.
