Larry Ellis "Author of Forgiveness: Unleashin... says:

Biblically based refreshing view of the Christain woman Rev. Williams uses the words of the Apostle Paul to show that Paul actually affirms the role of women in ministry and Christian leadership. She is not to see men as her priest and dominating leader. He looks directly at most of the problem passages by Paul and shows how they are typically misinterpreted to place the woman below men in the family and church. It was truly a great work. Highly recommended
