Sort order. Jul 06, Jessica rated it liked it. I happen to agree with Scorgie's conclusions, but at times I find the case he builds tenuous. I think he gives a pretty excellent feminist critique of church history, and he brings to light some good points about the trinity's connection to gender relations. However, in his exegesis of Paul I can't help but feel Scorgie cuts off his nose to spite his face. By apologizing for Paul's seemingly patriarchal and hierarchical biblical prescriptions, Scorgie, in my opinion, weakens the Bible's claim to I happen to agree with Scorgie's conclusions, but at times I find the case he builds tenuous.
By apologizing for Paul's seemingly patriarchal and hierarchical biblical prescriptions, Scorgie, in my opinion, weakens the Bible's claim to divine infallibility. Scorgie suggests that Paul wrote what he did 1 to be tongue-in-cheek, 2 to sell people on the gospel even if it meant compromising on gender equality, 3 to illustrate a different principle altogether and 4 because he though Jesus was coming soon so he put women's rights on the back burner.
If Paul had known better, Sorgie suggests, he might not have written what he did. That to me sounds like Paul, and by extension God who breathed Paul's inspired words, made a mistake. Anyway you slice Sorgie's argument the Bible is framed as a document nearly impossible to understand and difficult to trust. Now Scorgie may well be right about all of it though he gives little evidence to back up his hypotheses but I have an inkling that undermining the legitimacy of Scripture was just about the last thing he wanted to accomplish.
Nevertheless, I appreciate his zeal and his dedication to an egalitarian vision of Christianity.
Thank you for the sobering challenge they are to me. Bring it down,this terrible slavery! Like some of the monks here, I try to avoid the press of thepilgrims who come on the weekends. He comes out every few days to pick up theportion of food which the monks leave for him. He is a liar and cannot be trusted after all his job is to steal, to kill and to destroy he will use anything and anybody to deceive you because he cares nothing about you. Yet they are alive, the s to nes and the faces, alive withobedience to your ways and the acceptance of your will. I was able to walk there myself this time, as I knew my way.
Yet for my money, William Webb's book on the subject is still the best reasoned work I've read on the role of women in the church. May 21, Glen rated it it was amazing. Excellent book!
Scorgie has written a well researched book in support of the egalitarian position. His exegetical work is solid and thorough, and he is transparent when it is weak. This book needs to be read by egalitarians and complementarians alike. For those who have "inherited" the egalitarian position this book will help you did the background to the view.
It will assist in finding this position for yourself. If you are a complementarian this book is a must read even if you have no desire t Excellent book! If you are a complementarian this book is a must read even if you have no desire to change your view. The work Scorgie has done will force you to measure your position. You will leave this book with a respect for this who are egalitarians. Apr 17, Kisha Gallagher rated it liked it.
This is a good resource into understanding the the Creator's original design for the roles of the male and female. However, there are other works, such as Dr.
Skip Moen's book Guardian Angel, that explore these roles from a deeper Hebraic perspective. I found that on some pages I could completely agree with the author, and then on the next, his paradigm would peek through and negate some of his previous conclusions. I'm thankful for those that are trying to bring restoration to the body composed This is a good resource into understanding the the Creator's original design for the roles of the male and female.
I'm thankful for those that are trying to bring restoration to the body composed of both male and female. Thanks for the adventures.
