    The book's final section examines the status of women in the church during the second and third centuries. In sum, Patterson views Ryrie's work as "a masterpiece of blending both historical records with biblical exegesis to present a well-reasoned biblical answer to the burning question from this generation and those to come."Pages: COVID Resources.
