Review of 'The story of women in ministry in the Baptist Union of Great Britain'

It seems to be the week for reviews of things I've written / been involved with!

This time it's the reader on Women in Ministry that I produced for the Baptist Union of Great Britain, reviewed by Rosa Hunt in the latest volume of the Baptist Ministers' Journal (April 2012 volume 314).

The review concludes:

"This book is a lively, thoughtful, well researched and comprehensive attempt to replace that negative opinion [of women in ministry] by positive affirmation... I would thoroughly recommend it, not only for its excellent contribution to the debate, but also because the arguments it raises about the inherent tension between collective Baptist policy and individual freedom of conscience touch the very heart of what it means to be a Baptist."
