Richard Rice is a prolific and influential Adventist theologian, having written, early on, a book on The Openness of God — the gift human freedom, he argued, puts limits on divine control and thus on divine foreknowledge — that continues to provoke discussion outside as well as inside of Adventist circles.
This weekend, the GC and North American Division are sponsoring a summit on abuse, as part of the enditnow campaign. We asked Carla Baker to tell us what is happening with the campaign against abuse, and what we can expect at the summit. Baker has been director of the North American Division Women’s Ministries department since 2006.
Discussion of headship theology during the recent meetings of the Theology of Ordination Study Committee prompted Gerry Chudleigh to undertake some additional historical research. As the communication director for the Pacific Union Conference, he has had to answer many questions about women's ordination and has become well versed in Adventist history related to the topic. On May 1 he published online an extended account of how headship theology came to the Seventh-day Adventist church.
