  Book Review. Share the Gospel with Prisoners. Then Apply It to the System. Evangelicals are superb at the first task. To what extent do they embrace the second as well? Women’s Ordination Author: Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra. Dearly Beloved in Christ Jesus our Lord: The problems which seem to confront the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church today revolving around the issue of the ordination of women to major holy orders are, to say the least, complex and laden with emotion, fueled with misunderstanding, confusion, and some of the greatest theological concerns of our present day.   NOTE: The “evangelical” portion of this section relies heavily upon this AMIA Report on Women’s Ordination. In fact, when it comes to the exegesis of specific biblical texts, the ACNA report simply quotes from the AMIA report. See pages –74 of the ACNA Report and pages 37– of the AMIA Report. Free Methodist founder B.T. Roberts made his case for female pastors in his book “Ordaining Women,” but women could not become Free Methodist elders until General Conference delegates unanimously approved a resolution giving men and women equal status in church ministry.

State of the Question Since the Anglican-Roman Catholic Consultation has consistently affirmed that its goal is to help the two churches to arrive at full communion and organic unity. 1 Recently the question of ordination of women to the priesthood and episcopate has become an increasingly pressing issue in our churches, but the state of the question is not the same in both. However, some post-Evangelicals hoped they could lay out same-sex marriage as an ‘agree-to-disagree’ issue in Evangelicalism (like baptism or ordination of women) and to do so in, for example. In the book of Genesis, God tells Eve that her husband will rule over her. In the book of 1 Corinthians, Paul states that man is the head of a woman. People who are opposed to ordaining women use these references to validate the opinion that God did not intend for women to be church leaders.

  A History of Women and Ordination: The Ordination of Women in Medieval Context by Bernard Cooke, Gary Macy (Scarecrow Press) the purpose of these volumes is to provide the non-specialist reader with the best scholarly research on the role of women in Christian ministry and on the changing shape of ministry in Christian s: 1.   With heated convictions, evangelicals dogmatically dismount at different levels from the precipitous ladder ascending to sexual equality in the ministry. If our inconsistencies were not so tragic. The most popular argument against women’s ordination comes from 1 Corinthians; therefore, we will use it as our text in defense of their equal call to ministry. In order to remain focused and brief, we present the evidence in the from of logical bulleted ideas. Those who do not regard the question of women's ordination to be a totally closed issue cannot help but learn from this book and will find in it much food for reflection and discussion." —Mary J. McDonald, Ministry and Liturgy, March "Catholics interested in women's ordination would do well to read Wijngaard's s: 5.
