In T. Scott Womble's Beyond Reasonable Doubt: 95 Theses Which Dispute the Church's Conviction Against Women (paperback), the budding Xulon author pleads with leaders in the local church to listen, study, and ultimately discuss the issues surrounding the role of women in ministry. But more than that, it is a call to action, a plea for the church to stop ignoring the gifted women who need to be released to fully make their unique contributions to God's kingdom. By presenting a holistic discussion of the topic, utilizing 95 solid arguments in the case for women, the book is meant to be a comprehensive resource that addresses theology, exegesis, and everyday life.
Says Womble, "This book puts the most respectable arguments set forth by egalitarian scholars into one text. It also makes many unique contributions to further the case, which demands that women be released into ministry. The goal is to show that the idea of women serving in ministry is in no way a new or liberal idea. God has used women in leadership roles since the beginning of time, even in male-dominated cultures, and (He) continues to use them today."
With experience in both the ministerial and scholarly realms, Womble combines the best of both disciplines for a well-balanced assessment of all the relevant, real-life issues facing local churches today. He hopes Beyond Reasonable Doubt will resonate with his intended audience because, "For the church to operate most effectively, and most in line with God's ultimate plan, women must be released to fully function as God has gifted and called them," he says.
