In the following essay, Rebecca Merrill Groothuis (1954-2018), summarizes her arguments from her 1997 book, Good News for Women, which was published by Baker Books and which is still in print. This book was a follow-up to her 1994 work, Women Caught in the Conflict, published by Baker Books, and in print through Wipf and Stock Publishers. Rebecca was my first wife, my best editor, and an incisive writer thoroughly committed to biblical authority and sound hermeneutics, unlike not a few theological feminists. Rebecca thought more deeply about this issue than anyone I know, and I agree with her conclusions.
