Brief Review: Bartlett, Men and Women in Christ

McKnight has a post on Andrew Bartlett’s helpful book, Men and Women in Christ. Bartlett summarizes the six “pillars” of the arguments against women in church leadership and finds them wanting.

You should certainly read McKnight’s post, and check out the book. The summary is excellent & concise, as is McKnight’s conclusion;

“Silence proves nothing. …

If the church wanted to say ‘women can’t be elders or deacons or bishops’ it could have said so. It never did.”
