Description

Women are not inferior to men—so why does the church sometimes treat women as less capable or valued than men?

Women are told to be bold, assertive, independent, and competitive. They are expected to take leadership, exert authority, be bread-winners, and to single-handedly tackle all of life’s demands.

God’s high calling for women in the church—a topic still relevant for today—is outlined in 1 Timothy 2:9-15

If followed, His plan results in blessing, unity, and glory for God. In God’s High Calling for Women, Dr. John MacArthur discusses important concerns for women in the church as outlined by the apostle Paul: their attitude, appearance, testimony, design and contribution.

Complete with questions for review and thoughts for reflection at the end of each section, this thorough, insightful, yet concise study on the important and controversial subject of women in the church will serve as an excellent resource for personal or group study.
