Finally Feminist

Non-Fiction: Christianity|Women. Paperback from Baker Academic. Published in 2005. 129 pages. Purchased at Baker Book House, Grand Rapids, MI.

I’ve read several books on women and the church. This short volume will have to go at the top of my list. It seems like a very balanced book, and his reasoning makes a lot of sense to me.

Publisher’s summary:
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 this brief book, John Stackhouse proposes a way forward. Stackhouse provides biblical, theological, and practical arguments for his own understanding of the issue: Equality is the biblical ideal, but patriarchy is allowed and regulated by a God who has larger kingdom purposes in mind. Thought provoking and distinctive in its clarity and honesty, Finally Feminist will be extremely useful for deepening the gender conversation in the church.

    it was a birthday present and I have carried it with me but have stayed away from it because I don’t think it will get my full attention until after I’m through teaching. But now I’m looking forward to it again. thanks 🙂
