Editorial Reviews

"A powerful work of synthesis. Torjesen is nothing short of brilliant in tracing the connection between the church's move from private to public spheres and the corresponding move to suppress women's leadership. The cumulative effect of the book's argument is to make more rationally urgent than ever the removal of this scandal." (Elizabeth A. Johnson, author of She Who Is)
