The hosts and their guest, Eugene Hung, not only touch on Marvel's Agents of Shield and church youth group camp culture, but also unpack the "Man Box." The conversation also turns to intersectionality and gender-based violence.
As we pursue the goal of a thriving church where women and men serve on equal footing, it will be crucial for men to advocate for women as allies. Using a fresh research model, this seminar will outline key steps that men can take to become more effective advocates.
Paul’s words in 1 Cor 7:4 constitute Scripture’s only mention of the common Greek word for “authority” (exousia) in clear reference to husbands and wives. What does his bold statement mean in its biblical context, and what does it say about Christian mutuality in marriage and singleness today?
While we should be cautious in our society of affairs, divorce, and casual sex, the time has come to look beyond our societal issues and ask whether that fear and suspicion among brothers and sisters is all we can hope for in the family of Christ.
In this episode of “Conversing,” Mimi Haddad, president of CBE, discusses gender equality and women in leadership. She reflects with Dr. Labberton, president of Fuller Seminary, on the complex relationship between theology and real-life injustice, the social and economic benefits of women in leadership, and the pressing task of “dismantling theological patriarchy” in the church.
Christians who are truly for biblical equality must care about those disaffected men and consider ways to welcome and integrate them into church life without restoring discredited and harmful patterns of masculinity and femininity.
Julia Kavanaugh, an Irish Roman Catholic, was a Victorian novelist and biographer. Her book "Women of Christianity" offers the earliest survey of women’s lives in the Christian tradition. This text refutes the frequent charge of trendiness of egalitarianism, as it was written 150 years ago. It confronts male-dominated history (“great events, dazzling actions”) as pagan and transcends the “wearisome similarity” often depicted in saints’ lives. Finally, her book invites connections with contemporary feminist texts.
