I think that it is appropriate to at least identify the source of the
questions in the document as Wayne Grudum, "An Open Letter to Egalitarians",
Journal for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (March 1998):1, 3-4.

Eventually I expect to do my own hopefully extensive study of the
grammatical/linguistic/cultural/logical/presuppositional issues surrounding
the questions, but my focus is elsewhere for now.

Meanwhile, let me recommend eds. James R. Beck and Craig L. Blomberg, Two
Views on Women in Ministry, Zondervan, 2001. The book contains contributions
by two egalitarians (Craig Keener and Linda Belleville) and two
traditionalists/complementarians (Thomas Scheiner and Ann Bowman). Linda L.
Belleville interacts with the six questions in pp. 130-139.

 Five of the six questions concern Greek grammar and lexicography. I am

 You may contact me off-list if you wish to make theological comments or
