Inhaltsangabe: WOMEN IN THE CHURCH provides a much needed balanced interpretation and application of the overall Biblical teachings on the role of women in the church. With compelling research the study shows that while Scripture excludes women from serving in the representative role of priests, elders or pastors, it does include them in the supportive ministries of the church and in participation in public worship. The reason for this Biblical distinction derives not from the cultural conventions of the times, but from the distinct and yet complementary roles for men and women established by God at creation.
The book has been favorably reviewed by many scholars of different denominations and has become a standard textbook in several theological seminaries. In his review , Prof. Robert Preus, President of Concordia Theological Seminary, wrote: WOMEN IN THE CHURCH is the most thorough treatment of the subject on the basis of Scripture to be issued in our day. . .. Bacchiocchi's book should should settle the issue of the ordination of women, at least for Christians who hold to the authority of the Scripture.
WOMEN IN THE CHURCH is foreworded by two distinguished New Testament scholars, namely, Prof. Wayne Grudem of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Prof. James B. Hurley of Reformed Theological Seminary. Both professors wrote their doctoral dissertation at Cambridge University in England on crucial New Testament texts related to the role of women in the church. In his foreword Prof. Grudem wrote: "WOMEN IN THE CHURCH is a model of clarity and fairness. It will clear up much of the confusion people feel today over this issue. . . . Time and again I found myself saying Yes, Yes, as I read the book." On a similar Prof. Hurley wrote: "Its consistent effort to be fair and to be faithful to the Biblical text should earn WOMEN IN THE CHURCH wide readership and an influential position even among those who do not share its author's views.
About the Author: My background is rather unique. I was born and brought up in Rome, Italy, a stone-throw from the Vatican wall. For my college education I went to England where he earned a B. A. degree in Theology at Newbold College. From England I came to America for my graduate studies and earned a M. A. and a B. D. degrees at Andrews University Theological Seminary. Upon completing my seminary training in 1964, I went with my wife, Anna, to Ethiopia where I served for five years as Bible and History teacher.
In 1969 I returned to my native city of Rome to study at the prestigious Pontifical Gregorian University, where I was the first non-Catholic to be admitted in over 450 years of its history. At the Gregoriana I spent the next five years working toward a Doctoratus in Church History. I was awarded a gold medal by Pope Paul VI for attaining the academic distinction of summa cum laude for my class-work and dissertation From Sabbath to Sunday.
After completing my doctorate in 1974, I was invited to teach at Andrews University, a Seventh-day Adventist institution located in Berrien Springs, Michigan. For the past 23 years I have served at Andrews University as Professor of Theology and Church History. To be able to pursue more fully my ministry of research into vital Biblical truths, for the past 26 years I have taught only only from January to May of each year. From June to December I am off-teaching so that I can dedicate myself fully to research timely Biblical truths. The result of this ministry has been the publication of 15 volumes which have helped thousands of people around the world to better understand and experience Biblical truths.
