Product Description

Discussions about gender continue in many Christian denominations. With good people and solid arguments on each side of the divide, there seems to be little hope for a synthesis or even constructive dialogue.

In Finally Feminist, John Stackhouse proposes a way forward by affirming both the patriarchal and the feminist (or complementarian and egalitarian) reading of Scripture. He argues that these emphases exist side by side in the Bible. He then provides biblical, theological, and practical arguments for his own understanding: Equality is the biblical ideal, but patriarchy is allowed and regulated by a God who has larger kingdom purposes in mind. Stackhouse then test his understanding by exposing it to the objections of other theories and concludes with two appendices that tease out some practical implications.

Thought provoking and distinctive in its clarity and honest Finally Feminist will be a useful text for college and seminary courses, for pastors and church leaders, and for anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the role of women in the church and in society.

    In Finally Feminist, John Stackhouse has managed to produce the most intellectually honest analysis of biblical views on sex roles that I have yet encountered, and I have read my fair share. He does not shy away from using very "academic" theologic terms, but still communicates at a level that a layperson such as myself can understand. Finally!
