The Fall of Patriarchy: Its Broken Legacy Judged by Jesus & the Apostolic House Church Communities

Publisher's Description

Many Christians believe that male dominance is dictated by the Bible. In his provocative new book, Del Birkey challenges this oft-held assumption, critiquing the debilitating battle between scripture and tradition. Patriarchy is the inevitable theological result of the biblical fall, Birkey argues, leading to devaluation of and violence against women worldwide. As a fallen system, patriarchy cannot be a legitimate component of biblical Christianity. Filled with compelling historical and scriptural evidence, The Fall of Patriarchy is a must-read for everyone who has decried the scandal of patriarchal power in Christian ministry today.
