Men, Women, and God: Theology and Its Impact
Elevating women’s equality in church and Christian NGO work.
Hosted with the Women’s Commission of the World Evangelical Alliance and the Anglican Diocese of Norwich
Patriarchy is embedded in centuries of Christian teachings and practices. And Christian churches, organizations, institutes, and NGOs too often lend their support uncritically. To date, there is no scholarly evaluation of its theological foundations and social outcomes. Because of this, CBE’s conference, “Men, Women, and God: Theology and Its Impact,” re-examined the foundations of Christian patriarchy theologically and socially through varied disciplines. Theologians, lawyers, Bible scholars and translators, humanitarians, pastors, and those working to prevent abuse brought years of experience and wisdom to each session.
