Wednesday Giveaway - Man and Woman, One in Christ
This week’s giveaway, Man and Woman, One in Christ, is the
culmination of thirty-six years of studying Paul’s teachings on women and their
role in the church.
In these pages author Philip Payne offers a carefully
researched exegetical argument for an egalitarian
reading of Paul. Though not all may agree with his conclusions, scholars on
both sides of this debate have hailed his work as one of the most substantial
evangelical representations of egalitarianism.
“Philip Payne’s work has always been characterized by
careful, detailed exegetical study of the biblical text. In Man and Woman, One
in Christ, Payne brings decades of meticulous research to its proper
culmination in a compelling and thoroughly biblical demonstration that Paul the
apostle to the Gentiles was a wholehearted supporter of women serving in any
and all sorts of ministerial roles they are called and gifted to undertake.” –
Ben Witherington III
For someone who wants an extraordinarily detailed defense of
egalitarianism in Paul, however, Payne is a must read. And, in my opinion, his is second only to
Keener’s book as an exegetically plausible egalitarian approach. But with both, I remain just ‘almost
persuaded.’ – Craig Blomberg
Payne’s rigorous exegetical analysis seeks to demonstrate that
Paul’s message on this topic is consistent and coherent with the rest of his
theology. To that end he explores the influences on Paul, his practice as a
church leader, and his teachings to various Christian communities – with profound
implications for the church today.
