Women, Slaves, and the Gender Debate: A Complementarian Response to the Redemptive-Movement Hermeneutic

Description:

The egalitarians' redemptive-movement hermeneutic concedes many of the exegetical conclusions made by complementarians, but then argues that elsewhere the Bible moves us beyond these specific instructions. For example, the Bible commands slaves to submit to their masters, and yet basic principles in the Bible point toward the abolition of slavery. Is the issue of women's roles the same? This book examines the exegetical and hermeneutical questions, seeking to demonstrate the inconsistencies of adopting the redemptive-movement approach.
