A FIRST WORD

The restriction of the witness of more than half the members of the Body of Christ, the Church of the Living God, is a most serious matter. Just as serious is a failure to understand the underlying principles of the special contributions that men and women are intended to make in its life and work. The Church is suffering great loss from these two causes.

These, of course, are not the only causes of spiritual loss. Central and basic in the whole Church’s witness is the giving to the Lord Jesus Christ his full place in the personal life of each believer...

Chapter 1  ORIGINAL PRINCIPLES

The part which the woman should take in ministry in the things of God is a matter of great importance, both to her personally and to the Church.

               - Coleridge

Chapter 3 THE RESULT OF THE FALL

Having seen the perfect purpose of God for both the man and the woman and the great principles that governed it, we shall now consider the change that took place and the confusion that was caused by the fall of man.

What Satan offered to Eve and what she accepted was independence – independence from God’s authority and liberty from the rule of the law of perfect love – freedom to apply the law of self-love, permitting all things to be valued, judged and used by the rule of self-interest...
