Why Gender Hierarchy is at Odds with Christian Faith and How it Leads to Abuse

Mimi Haddad | Why Gender Hierarchy is at Odds with Christian Faith and How it Leads to Abuse

Too often the patriarchy of Bible culture has been confused with the moral teachings of Scripture. This workshop will explore how Christians working to end slavery challenged power, dominance, and self-interest in interpreting Scripture so that the church might become more effective agents of reconciliation in the world. What might egalitarians today learn from the interpretative methods of the abolitionists in their work as agents of gender justice?
