Lorna Ashworth's book is now available from Trushare

@£2.50 including p&p [see below]



Lorna Ashworth, a lay member of General Synod, has published this short booklet, Beyond Equal Rights, on the issue of Equality and Justice, with special reference to the use likely to be made of it in the forthcoming General Synod debate on the Revision Committee's Report in York.

Her book, written from an Evangelical standpoint, provides a scrupulously balanced resumé of the argument often advanced by proponents of the Ordination of women to the Episcopate on the grounds of 'Gender Equality'.

Lorna demonstrates convincingly that this argument cannot possibly bear the weight which is being placed upon it in this particular context.
