About this book

  • Are there still people—men and women—who believe in subordination?

  • Have the traditional values of the past been replaced by modern sensible humanism?

  • What possible grounds can persons in this age have to cling to conservatism in doctrine and practice?

  • Is there any reasonable case or cause to oppose the admitting of women to the ordained ministry of the church?

  • What is meant by a 'one-flesh' union?

  • What are the true foundations for marriage and vocation?

In this small book Geoffrey Bingham attempts to answer some of these questions. He has researched the subject widely and deeply for many years, and is not a conservative traditional simply out of obscurantism. A prolific writer in the area of human relationships, he has come up with a book which may well confront humanists—Christian and otherwise.
