Female Commentary Authorship

In high school I read through Tyndale House's Commentary on 1 & 2 Samuel alongside my ESV Study Bible. It was a great experience for my spiritual growth and increased my adoration for Scripture and fostered my high view of scripture which I now find succinctly defined by Sola Scriptura. I was a bit less spiritually discerning back then in general, and hadn't found myself convinced by the Doctrine of Grace at that point. Now, looking back at that commentary, I realize it was written by a woman, Joyce G. Baldwin.

As far as female pastorship and female leadership in the church I believe that Paul's words in Titus and 1 Timothy are still relevant today. So for those who agree with Paul's words there, do you consider a female-authored commentary as spiritual female authority? If not, how is it different than a female "pastor" preaching through the book exegetically in a sermon series? I myself haven't thought through it yet, but I'd like to hear what others think.

If you disagree with my views, and think that the Bible supports female pastorship, we don't have to argue over our differences in this thread.
