Christian Egalitarian Leadership takes further steps toward broadening the issues (e.g., it is about more than gender) but also focuses on one essential aspect of the thriving of egalitarianism—leadership.
Christians can assume egalitarian interpretations of Paul are a modern phenomenon, but evidence suggests that is incorrect. Meet one Christian group who ordained women for 200 years after Paul because of Gal. 3:28.
Paul lived and died for the gospel of Jesus. We learn a bit more about what Paul thought this gospel meant and what he believed it changed about power dynamics from what he says in his letter to the Philippians.
Intended to help understanding, verse and chapter numbers are not the Word of God. Sometimes these additions break up thoughts that clearly should go together. This leaves interesting questions about 1 Timothy 2 and 3.
Many women have had to grieve the complementarian Christian faith they were raised in. Using the stages of grief as a model is a helpful lens for deconstructing this faith and rebuilding better interpretations of Paul.
Remember Phoebe, and remember Priscilla, Lydia, Junia, and the many other women Paul called his coworkers, his equals. Remember Galatians 3:28. Remember the gospel of Jesus that Paul gave everything else up for.
My advice: Buy this book. Read it slowly. Chew on its words. Digest its content. Let its truths tutor your mind, penetrate your soul, and motivate you toward embracing, modeling, and conveying a more humble, Christlike expression of power.
