In 1 Corinthians 11, the Apostle Paul provides important instructions about two symbolic practices within Christianity. The most well-known of these practices is the Lord's Supper, found in the second half of 1 Corinthians 11.

In the first half of the same chapter, Paul teaches about the relationships between God and His people. He explains that these relationships – as we

This book is a condensed version that gets directly to the crux of the matter concerning women of the Christian faith covering their heads. Not just a historical study, but one that you can read quickly and decide for yourself: is this a privilege and practice I will accept, or will I disregard history and scripture? If you want to delve deeper, read the in-depth study found in this author's previous book. Just please understand this: once you read either of his books, there is a decision to be ...more

This is an excellent read! I thought that it read quickly, but keep in mind it is informative, and not a novel. I love both novels and informative books, but I thought I would point that out so that you would know what to expect. He provides a lot of links/footnotes for the information that he gives in this book. This book will make you think. You will have to make a decision when you finish this book.

The topic of head coverings is such an uncomfortable passage to read in this day and time, yet
I'm rating this book like I try to rate all of them - without regard for whether or not I agree with it. I get that this is more of a pamphlet and not intended to be an in depth study. Phillips hits the high points of the major arguments for and against the modern head covering, but honestly the brevity hurts him because you simply cannot face an issue that has as much history and debate surrounding it as the head-covering does that quickly and it not come across as if you're casually dismissing ...more

Eine kurze, prägnante und biblisch fundierte Auslegung von 1. Korinther 11. Sehr verständlich und gut nachzuvollziehen und sehr nah am Text orientiert, ohne eigene Interpretationen einfließen zu lassen (wie es bei diesem kontroversen Thema schnell passieren kann). Für mich ein guter Einstieg in die Thematik. Am Ende stellt sich die Frage: Wie reagiere ich darauf? Was bedeutet das für mein persönliches (Glaubens-)leben?

I did not know the reason for head covering. Very interesting content. I have seen women at my church wearing a head cover, even some young girls, but did not know for sure the reason behind it.

Learning tool

Very Insightful, a helpful learning tool for those who are searching for a stronger relationship with our God.
I would highly recommend this book to those who find the lord talking to their heart about this. Thank you so much for this insight.

This is a very brief overview of the srguments for women covering their heads in worship. This is a good resource if you are just beginning the study of this subject but if you've already gone in depth, this book isn't as useful.

A simple, clear and short study from 1 Corinthians 11 for those wanting to know about head-covering in the church.

Head Coverings

I don’t know if I’m solid on the idea but I have to say this was a very well organized book on the topic and was extremely helpful in examining the position.
This book was solid and biblical. This is a passage I have read quite a bit and have struggled with myself. I felt like the author did a great job showing this from just the bible without human ideas getting in the way.

I still don't wear a headcovering because the authority in my life (my Dad) does not wish me to. Since this is a supposed to be a sign of submission, I have to pass on it for now. However, it is an issue I will revisit when and if I get married.
Frans Kempe
A short look on the challenging scripture place 1 Cor 11. Discusses what a headcovering is and what it could mean both in the scripture and what christian tradition and scholars have thought. A small part of a longer study.

Scripturally based

Clearly presents the facts in a very concise manner. It is quite convicting. I recommend it for study and consideration.
