‘With great joy, I recommend this book to all serious readers, to those who are ready to put aside their prejudices. May it be the first swallow that announces the coming of spring’-Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh (England). This book, by a leading theolgian, is a serious reexamination of the role of women in the Church. For Orthodox and Roman Catholics, especially, the question of women’s ordination must be asked ‘from the inside’ and not only ‘from the outside’. This book does not suggest final answers, but raises issues and defines their relative importance.
