Responding to Abuse in Christian Homes: A Challenge to Churches and their Leaders
By: Nancy Nason-Clark, Catherine Clark Kroeger, Barbara Fisher Townsend | March 4, 2011

The Abuse of Scripture and its Consequences in Gender Inequality (Part 2)
By: Manfred T. Brauch | December 16, 2009
In my previous column (based on my recently published book, Abusing Scripture), I argued that the “abuse of words” often does violence to the meaning and message of Scripture. I illustrated this by showing that the designation of the woman as man’s “helper” (Gen. 2:20) does not show her as a subordinate person, but rather [...]
The Abuse of Scripture and its Consequences in Gender Inequality (Part 1)
By: Manfred T. Brauch | December 9, 2009
One such abuse is “the abuse of selectivity.” This abuse does not consist of an outright distortion of the meaning of given texts, but entails ignoring or rejecting other parts or passages of Scripture that support a different teaching, present an alternate perspective, or advocate an opposing view.

Are Women Fully Human?
By: Mimi Haddad | May 7, 2008
If you spend time with 20 and 30 year olds, you realize one of the most important topics on their minds, understandably, is dating and marriage. Young men and women are eager to discover gender differences, awakening powerfully in them; to understand and interact with the opposite sex in ways that please God and nurture their own [...]

The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help
By: Jackson Katz | April 16, 2006
Katz is cofounder of the Mentors in Violence Prevention Program (MVP), and his focus is on prevention—his intended audience is not violent men who need help changing their ways, but all men, who, he says, have a role to play in preventing male violence against women.
