Where's Mom: The High Calling of Wife and Mother in Biblical Perspective
Often women who have taken salaried jobs and titled positions have found themselves enslaved to the priorities of work and career. As a result, many of these women face failures in child-rearing and homemaking and find that the dual responsibilities of career and family may crowd out the time for personal creativity. Dorothy Patterson urges women to reconsider these priorities and not to forget who they are meant to be. An educated professional woman herself, Patterson probes several crucial questions about the high calling of wives and mothers in light of biblical teaching: Is homemaking a job? Is homemaking a challenging career? Is being a mother a worthy service? Is being a wife a fulfilling vocation?

Convenient Contraception or Challenging Parenthood:
Personal Agenda vs. God’s Plan
There is a fundamental confusion between "finding a solution" and "eliminating a problem." Complex issues go beyond superficial questions, making the task of accepting or rejecting parenthood a challenge. The topic of contraception is indeed "pregnant" with possibilities for positive discussion and vehement disagreement. While no specific biblical text will settle the birth control issue, for me as a theologian, moral imperatives and timeless principles from which one can then make specific applications to contemporary decisions and situations are certainly readily apparent in Scripture.
