Below is an thoughtful discussion by one of the most Christ-centered theologian/scholar of our time. When Alan Johnson kindly asked me to contribute a chapter to How I Changed My Mind about Women in Leadership, I had to tell him that I had not changed my mind on this point, and thus could not contribute. All through my young life-from Mrs. Roy Rowan, at the first Baptist Church of Buffalo Missouri, to Mrs. Flood and others at Shiloh Baptist Church at Rover Missouri-those who had taught me most "at church" were women. Actually, I knew that, in many cases, there would have been no church at all if it hadn't been for women; and, beyond church, life in my environment was mainly anchored in strong and intelligent women who-often with little or nothing in the way of "credentials"-simply stood for what was good and right and directed others in the way of Christ.
