Description

Based on both religious prescriptions and cultural norms, for centuries the role of clergy in Christian churches was traditionally assigned to males only. However, following the 1970’s feminist movement, the last few decades allowed room in Adventism for considerably more female pastors. By interviewing separately spouses from marital couples in which the wife is a present or future Adventist clergy, this qualitative study explored participants’ knowledge and interpretation of gender related biblical passages.
