A podcast for a time such as this
Two Fuller Seminary students walk into a bar...one orders beer, one orders wine, and a conversation deconstructing traditional patriarchal paradigms and doctrines ensues. For those needing a resource to bolster their own studies and egalitarian position on the equality, roles, and place of men and women within the body of Christ, this is a good place to start. I appreciate that Nick and Allison take their studies on the topic seriously, and immediately apply it and share it to enlarge this important conversation. I look forward to more from these two, expecting the conversations to only get richer and deeper as they delve further into their studies and commitment to sound exegesis of the relevant (and sometimes not so obviously relevant) texts.
I'm excited to listen to the future episodes!
This certainly isn’t theology for beginners but, like hot milk on steel cut oats, the hosts are able to turn some pretty dry and hard topics into a digestible and hearty meal for the soul. I really enjoy the close reading of the texts. It’s a solid bulwark against the overwhelming tide of biblicist complementarian takes on these passages.
