    "Outstanding among the Apostles": The Role of Women in the Churches of Paul

    The ministry role of women in today's churches continues to be a hotly debated topic in many quarters, especially in evangelical circles. While much—if not most—of this debate is centered on the so-called restrictive passages in the Pauline letters of 1 Corinthians and 1 Timothy, this course will begin with an analysis of the actual role that women played in the Pauline churches as observed in all of the apostle's letters and in the book of Acts. In the conviction that Paul's theory and practice must in the end coincide, we will seek to articulate a unified Pauline vision on these important matters.
