Launching Marsden's Mission: The Beginnings of the Church Missionary Society in New Zealand, viewed from New South Wales - eds. Peter G Bolt, David B Pettett.
In 1794 the Rev Samuel Marsden became the second Chaplain to the Colony of New South Wales. Both Marsden and the first Chaplain, the Rev Richard Johnson, came to the Colony under the sponsorship of the Church of England Evangelicals. They had high hopes that New South Wales would be the base from which the ‘everlasting gospel’ would sound forth to achieve the salvation of the ‘poor benighted heathens’ of the South Seas.
The first full-length biography of Justin Welby
What does the Bible say about the role of women in the church? There is a lot of pressure to match up to contemporary secular standards, and Christians themselves tend to fall into two camps: the egalitarians and the complementarians.
This study sets a case for positive complementarianism. Given their minority and vulnerable position in the current debate, it is easy for complementarians to come across as negative and defensive. They are not helped in this by the fact that some of the key biblical texts (from 1 Corinthians 14 and 1 Timothy 2) are expressed in negative terms: what a women is ‘not permitted’ to do. The claim here, however, is that the complementarity between male and female portrayed as ideal in the Bible is a thoroughly beautiful arrangement: something to be admired and to aspire to.
