CBE President's Speaking Engagements

November 15, 2016 - November 17, 2016
Dr. Mimi Haddad will present “Reading Scripture through a Patriarchal Lens: How Masculine Christianity Distorts Divine and Human Ontology” at the Evangelical Theological Society, Other Voices in Interpretation. ETS will be held November 15-17, 2016 in San Antonio, TX. Paper Description: Christian teachings and traditions have repeatedly capitulated to patriarchal philosophy and culture. The result has been a formulation of “male” as more godlike whereby males arrogate authority over females, a position from which females are deemed ontologically inferior. This paper will consider modern examples of masculine Christianity as it distorts not only the nature and purpose of humanity created male and female in God’s image, but as it also misrepresents the n...

Join Dr. Mimi Haddad at the Vista Covenant Church in San Diego on November 13, 2016, as she explores and interprets the writings from Apostle Paul. Throughout history, select writings from the Apostle Paul have been read out of context in silencing and subordination of women to men. This is a great tragedy when you consider Paul’s closest coworkers were women, including the deacon Phoebe, the teacher Priscilla and the Apostle Junia. While Paul silences individuals who are false teachers, leadership for Paul is located in gifting, calling, and character.

Join Dr. Mimi Haddad at the 2016 "Truth Be Told" international conference as she will be one of the plenary speakers to speak out against gender based violence and lecture on "Ideas Have Consequences: Justice Begins with a Consistent Reading of Scripture." The teachings and practices of Christian faith have significant implications for girls and women globally. As Plato said, ideas rule the world. Ideas have consequences, and religious ideas even more so, since they are said to represent God. What has been the impact of Christian teachings? Have they nurtured women's flourishing? This lecture will answer these questions by considering the three views the church has historically held regarding women's value, purpose, and equality, each supported with a particu...

Join Mimi Haddad at the Denver Seminary for a complimentary lunch and a lecture on "Is an Omni-Male Deity the God of Scripture?" in the Executive Board Room, Anita Graber Building.  Throughout history, Christians have be swayed by philosophical currents that impute masculine gender as part of God’s being. More recently, evangelicals have argued for the “masculine feel” of Christianity—a current that informs and influences the mission of the church today. This lecture will consider these forces and its impact. For more information, please contact hanson139@comcast.net.
