Fed by a media with few moral borders, our culture is now witnessing a tidal wave of gender role confusion: California calls for transgender bathrooms on campuses, activists clamor for federal laws supporting same-sex marriage, and TV audiences are transfixed by programs celebrating polygamy …
It is against this backdrop of cultural distortions regarding sexuality that the Seventh-day Adventist Church must now address what could potentially be the greatest crisis of its 150-year history. Do we believe that role distinctions between men and women should be defined by the ever-changing culture around us … or by the Word of God?

"I have carefully read “The Adventist Ordination Crisis – Biblical Authority or Cultural Conformity?” and concur with its message, its tone of concern, and its faithfulness to the Biblical model and the counsel given in the writings of Ellen G White. The book is well written and covers the questions that many members of the local church have been asking.” -- G Edward Reid
I would like to have the book read to me.
This short book gives sound, understandable, biblical answers for those who are perplexed about what the Bible teaches on women's ordination. Each chapter begins with a short summary and then provides answers to questions that are frequently raised on the chapter topic. It is an excellent overview to the topic. I am giving this to friends.
