It is a matter of urgent practical importance, for it concerns who and what we are as men and women before God – our aspirations, our sense of calling, our self-worth. As positions become increasingly entrenched, is there any hope of attaining a biblically based consensus?Andrew Perriman is convinced that there is. He endeavours to reformulate Pauls main presuppositions in such a way as to retain the relevance of important insights on both sides. While he believes that difficult decisions have to be made regarding the central issues, his principal concern is the unity of Christs body, which calls us to listen to one another, and to worship, work and pray together.
