The subject of ""women in ministry"" has attracted considerable attention in the past half-century of Western Christianity. While much of the debate has centered around ordination and female pastors, few works have focused specifically on female deacons. A Case for Female Deacons challenges reformed and evangelical Christians to accept the legitimacy of female deacons without getting distracted by the more controversial debate about female pastors. The heart of the book contains a thorough exegesis of key passages and a fascinating look at what the church believed about deacons in centuries past. As a graduate thesis, readers will find a cohesive, logical argument supported by a wealth of scholarly research. As a contemporary work in theology, many complementarians and traditionalists will be challenged to revise their position. The end result is a compelling biblical, theological, and historical case for female deacons. ""Should women be admitted to the church office of deacon? This issue continues to spark lively debate in many reformed and evangelical circles. In this book, Jamin Hubner contributes to the debate by examining the key New Testament evidence, interacting with prominent biblical scholars with logical acuity and exegetical skill, and concluding that Scripture supports the notion of women deacons. This conclusion is then corroborated by a survey of leading figures and movements from church history. This book is a 'must read' for anyone wanting a thorough knowledge of the central issues in this discussion."" --Mark A. House, Professor of Greek Exegesis, New Geneva Theological Seminary ""Jamin Hubner exposited Romans 1 at our yearly Bible conference a couple of years ago, and we were blessed by his reverent and careful handling of the word of God. I am pleased to see him continue that same approach with regard to the question of female deacons. I heartily recommend A Case for Female Deacons to all Christians who desire a biblically healthy and fully functioning local church."" --Don Fowler, pastor, Mariner's Reformed Baptist Church Jamin Hubner is an American theologian from South Dakota. He is a graduate of Dordt College (BA Theology), Reformed Theological Seminary (MA Religion), and the University of South Africa (ThD) and serves as Founding Faculty of John Witherspoon College. Dr. Hubner is also an accomplished jazz percussionist and, with his wife Jessica, enjoys outdoor life, reading, tea, and running their small businesses.

    What age is it okay for a child to partake in the Lord's supper?

    Marriage is under attack now more than ever. Even within the church, homosexuality, divorce, and shallow, sentimental views of love are subverting God's design for husbands and wives. To help Christian couples counter these trends and recover marriage as God intended it, Dr. Michael A.G. Haykin has compiled a rich anthology of love letters from saints of the past. Each letter gives us a glimpse of what marriage should be: joyful companionship, deep passion, and unfailing commitment through the ups and downs of life. At its best, Christian marriage is a foretaste of eternal bliss--and it's far more satisfying than any of the substitutes this world has to offer.

    Many Christians mistakenly believe that true Christians don't get depressed, and this misconception heaps additional pain and guilt onto Christians who are suffering from mental and emotional distress. Author David P. Murray comes to the defense of depressed Christians, asserting that Christians do get depressed! He explains why and how Christians should study depression, what depression is, and the approaches caregivers, pastors, and churches can take to help those who are suffering from it. With clarity and wise biblical insight, Dr. Murray offers help and hope to those suffering from depression, the family members and friends who care for them, and pastors ministering to these wounded members of their flock.
