    Like so many books that push egalitarianism, this one claims not to be one-sided. But from the title on, it is nothing new, but simple liberal theology.

    When I bought this book, I should have noticed the title said "Does Christianity" and not "Does the Bible". Even though the book does not deal extensively with the bible, it is still a useful read. Equal regard advocates in this book seem to believe the bible can only be interpreted through the cultural and political setting in which it is written and therefore have some very creative interpretations of the bible. Some of the male headship advocates had a similar approach but two seemed to place more emphasise on the bible as God's Word able to speak for itself (which was quite a relief). Both sides agree on how husbands and wives are to treat each other but no one really explains what exactly headship means. Both sides also deal quite extensively with past and present social and cultural trends as well as historical views, which seemed to be at the expense of a rigorous biblical study.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a balanced discussion on some of issues of male headship, especially those (like myself) not familiar with the equal regard view.
