In the fall of 1990 the author's church members began to request teaching on the subject of women in the ministry. He researched the subject and decided to present a series of lectures. Since our church sponsors Lighthouse Christian College it was decided to make professional tapes of the lecture series for sale to the public and for the college as well. There was a need to let the public see the transparencies and materials of research as well. This book is a result of that desire. The lectures are as delivered except for editing for print and minor changes to insure clarity. Transparency plates have been included.The text will note the use of these transparencies for ease of use. A section is included at the end of the book on the conduct of women in the ministry. This has been requested by women in the ministry themselves.
