Does the Bible prescribe gender roles for men and women? Are men uniquely called to exercise authority in marriage and church ministry? Is submission a one-way street, for women only? Or, has God created us-and called us-to live together in a mutual, shared partnership of yielding in love to each other? Partners in Marriage and Ministry addresses these frequently asked questions. Without the usual argument and rhetoric of the current debate, Partners in Marriage and Ministry presents the biblical tenets of gender equality. Journey through Scripture with Dr. Ron Pierce as he draws readers into topics he has encountered in thirty years of teaching classes on gender and the Bible. Partners in Marriage and Ministry offers insights for:
• Understanding what the Bible teaches about gender.
• Building a strong and intimate marriage.
• Serving God in ministry-whether you are single or married.
