With simple and familiar doctrines, religious scholar C. Robert Line shows that Latter-day Saint women are of great worth, they do indeed participate in the priesthood, are given priesthood authority, and can fully access priesthood power here in mortality. He explores the central issue of women and the priesthood in three parts: 1-Women's relationship to the priesthood as declared by scriptures and latter-day prophets and apostles. 2-The doctrine of equality, the principle of gender roles, and divinely appointed priorities. 3-The temple experience as it relates to the priesthood here and in the eternities. Through these doctrines and principles, the Lord not only shows His love and concern for women but also prepares them for their divine role in the eternities.
