Feminism the Bible Author:Mardi Keyes This tiny little booklet is one of the best overall summaries on the compatibility of biblical feminism and secular feminism that there is. "Biblical feminist" is NOT an oxymoron. Includes brief explanations of troublesome Bible passages, such as 1 Timothy 2:12 and the "helper" thing in Genesis, and provides a basis for why all of God's people a... more »re equal, regardless of race or sex. It doesn't delve too deep into any one aspect of biblical feminism, but it's a great place to start.
This short pamphlet offers a well-thought out reconciliation of the concepts of feminism within the Christian framework of the Bible. As described in Keyes booklet, the Bible contains messages of equality both in the OT and NT that were radical for their time and, if truly applied as intended, still radical for today. A very handy introduction to this topic and a must-read for anyone struggling to reconcile a feminist perspective with a Christian journey of faith.« less
