by Reverend Lawrence L. Blankenship
There are many misconceptions about women in the church. With careful attention to both sides of the controversy, Rev. Blankenship presents the question of whether women should serve as preachers in the pulpit. His examination of the issue draws on biblical and Gospel sources, and offers full discussion of these Scriptural sources. This book makes a womanís point of view clearer and easier to understand.
The author shows, through biblical and Gospel exploration, how the roles of women have changed drastically in our time, citing specific instances of women remaining obedient to the words of God. At any point in life, the author states, a woman should learn that following God is an absolute necessity.
The Divine Law: Women in a Changing World is Rev. Blankenshipís third book in this series; the first and second are The Divine Law: The Law of God and the Law of the States, Vols. 1 and 2.
