I was delighted to receive my copy this morning of "The Story of Women in Ministry in the Baptist Union of Great Britain".
This is the published version of a report I prepared for Baptist Union Council a couple of years ago, and provides an introduction to the history, theology and personalities involved in the debate amongst Baptists as to whether women should be ministers of our churches. It is my hope that this will offer a helpful voice in the ongoing conversations between those who disagree, and that as a Union we will continue to find a way forwards with grace and unity.
Copies will be available shortly from the Baptist Union Website www.baptist.org.uk, or from the Faith and Unity Department at Baptist House 01235 517700.
