Is It Okay For a Woman to Write Theology and Be Read by Men?

I get questions like this often. It is curious that most men are not called to the offices of ruling or teaching elder either, but we do not question whether we can learn from men. It further perplexes me because we have women “tradents,” who think through and pass down theology and tradition, throughout Scripture, for a co-ed readership.

So clearly God has ordained for women to be active traditioners and for men to learn from women. We have whole books of the Bible, Esther and Ruth, which give us a female voice in passing down the stories of God’s redemption.
