Have you ever wondered why some women cover their heads in church, while men remove their hats? Have you thought about what this practice means and where it came from? It's not something that was picked up from the surrounding culture. Instead, it comes directly from 1 Corinthians 11 (in the Bible) where this practice is explained in surprising depth. In fifteen consecutiv ...more

Outstanding and Well Written

This well researched teaching on head covering for women is brilliantly written. The reasoning behind this often overlooked practice is presented in a clear and easily understood way. Mr. Gardiner presents the case for modern head covering from early. Church fathers and practices. He explains that head covering is for all women of prayer and puts to rest the idea that the practice is no longer relevant. One important point brought in the book is that w a women prays w

Jeremy Gardiner has done the Western Church a service in bringing to us a clear Scriptural argument for Head Coverings. This forgotten practice by many is being brought back to the Church and to its benefit. God is looking for a Bride that is fully following in His ways before the coming of Christ. This practice has spiritual implications for our present time and our soon eternal banquet with God.

This was an excellent book. It is very well researched and provides a careful exegesis of the 1 Corinthians 11 head covering passage. It also answers all common objections and offers practical application. I would encourage all Christians who have avoided studying this topic to once and for all take up the task of studying this section of Scripture. This book is an excellent place to start.

An unconvincing attempt at making temporary applications of biblical principles binding forevermore. Gardiner's book gets off to a bad start when he describes the view that women should wear head-coverings in worship as 'a neglected doctrine'. It is a 'doctrine', which for Gardiner must be weighty because 'there are not only one or two obscure verses, but the topic occupies fifteen consecutive verses.' Clearly, if the importance of a doctrine is now to be measured by the number of verses it occu ...more

Good

In depth Scriptural study of much needed Christian subject. A must read by every Christian who wants to know more of God's Word.

Ultimately unconvincing, but a good place to go for an introductory exposition of the conservative position on this question.

Comprehensive & Practical

"Christian headcovering" has a lengthy history, yet often provokes strong emotions in today's world. Most of the quality literature available on the topic is article-length (often published within theological journals & Scripture commentaries). Rarely does this often-confusing subject receive a balanced & biblical book-length treatment, written for the average Christian. I'm grateful that such a book is now available.

Gardiner's book is comprehensive. It is bo
