Why Ministers Must Be Men
Why Ministers Must Be Men: A Brief Survey of the Roles of Men and Women in the Church has two main themes. The first is the argument that Scripture requires ministers in the church to be men—that is, they must be male. The second theme addresses the reason why this has become an issue at all (when the texts are so plain) and will argue that ministers in the Christian church must be more than male—that is, they must be vertebrates.
The ministry calls for men in both senses of that word.
The “Answers in an Hour” series is a collection of short, easily digestible books written with the inquirer in mind. These little books provide brief studies of various topics of interest to Christians who seek instruction that is grounded in biblical theology.
