Overview

Men, women, and equality:
Where is the Bible pointing us?

Join the journey through the pages of Scripture and across history to see the trajectory of the Spirit. Can it be that he is taking the church back to personal wholeness and relational harmony that have eluded men and women since the Fall in the garden?

Based on a high view of Scripture, this fresh look at the biblical landscape
• corrects misunderstandings of biblical statements on gender.
• demonstrates that some texts applied only to the unique historical situations they addressed.
• discerns the overall direction that the Holy Spirit is taking, calling the church to embrace a vision of gender equality, freedom, and mutuality.

Written in an accessible style, The Journey Back to Eden offers hope and encouragement to men and women who are perplexed by gender stereotypes. The book includes questions for individual reflection or group discussion.

    Worth a Look

    I recommend this book. It is culturally relevant and sensitive to truth. The author is innovative yet grounded in dialogue with past and present scholars. Many Christians (and others) have adopted a stance on gender issues without really articulating their own posture. Here a person will find fresh ideas. The book will create tension for one who opposes the viewpoints espoused by the author however, in considering such perspectives an individual is better prepared for debate, if not a change in outlook. The author outlines several compelling cases for gender equality, frequently using concepts (such as trajectory of the spirit) that have eluded the mainstream. Given that young couples and unmarried individuals often view the gender code through a lens muddled by dogma or a few, partially-explored scriptures (i.e. Ephesians 5:22-33), this insightful exhibit should be added to the public discussion.
