Women in World Christianity: Building and Sustaining a Global Movement is introduced as “the first textbook to focus on women’s experiences in the founding, spread, and continuation of the Christian faith.” It is, in effect, meant as a primary textbook “for both introductory courses [...]

In my final year of college, as my master’s program and wedding approached, The New Yorker magazine came to me. It included a Bob Mankoff cartoon in which an affable lady editor sat at her desk across from a scruffy dude wearing a toga suggestive of Mesopotamia. A manuscript lay between them, and the caption […]

If someone had asked me what my highest ambition was as a twenty-year-old, I would have said, “To be a wife and mother.” I had it all planned out—I was going to be a flawless, well-heeled, stay-at-home mom of six who ran errands in my immaculate SUV, prepared glorious dinners, and enjoyed fancy date nights […]

As the father of three boys and a girl, I’m aware of how different it is growing up today in terms of gender roles. When I hit puberty during the feminist revolution of the seventies, it was tough enough. Raised to open the door for a lady, I discovered that (at least in L.A.) this […]

To be honest, as a Christian woman I don’t read Christian books intended for Christian women. I find them to be (often) legalistic in approach to womanhood: focusing on the function of my womanhood (typically translated in terms of mother and a wife) rather than looking at me as a whole person. Surely I am […]

Plane rides are my worst fear (though my husband tells me all my fears are my "worst fear"). What can I say? I blame my parents for making me feel relatively safe and secure for so many years. They were slow and sneaky, forcing me to grow up one shoe size at a time. The […]

I get it. I'm trying to be the spiritual leader in a home with six sinners who trust in Christ, repent of their sins, and look for something beyond this present age as our hope. God calls me and my wife to do our parts. I am all ears when brothers (yes, usually brothers) encourage […]

Handbook of Women Biblical Interpreters is a product of modern scholarship's quest to include the female perspective in every discipline, including theology. The editors and authors of this volume unhesitatingly assume that men and women have an equally authoritative perspective on Scripture. As Marion Ann Taylor remarks in her introduction, "Discovering what the Bible meant […]

A few years ago, a friend of Brooke's bought her a copy of the highly entertaining and educational Make the Bread, Buy the Butter by Jennifer Reese. It's a cookbook written by a laid-off suburbanite-turned-food-blogger about her three-year journey to save some money by making all the food she would normally buy (such as cheese, […]

What do we know of Rahab the prostitute? In the Old Testament, her name occurs only in Joshua 2 and 6. (The other references to Rahab ‘e.g. Psalm 87:4′ are not to Rahab the prostitute. The names are spelled differently in the Hebrew.) In the New Testament, Rahab is mentioned in three somewhat prominent passages: […]

In this issue of Modern Reformation we encourage readers to ask some tough questions about the unity of our churches. We're raising a hot-potato issue: Do women get the short end of the stick when it comes to the study of theology? Scanning the evangelical landscape, it seems to us that women suffer from a […]

Originally intended for women in her church, her Bible studies have now reached thousands. Kathleen serves as director of women's initiatives for The Gospel Coalition. She also serves […]

I recently moved (for the fifth time in two years) into a new apartment. My longsuffering brother, Mark, helped me schlep all fifteen of my book boxes. He's a good kid, but his appreciation for the literary arts is tragically underdeveloped. He was scanning my shelves when he stopped and pointed at The Brothers Karamazov. […]

Adam had received much. Though formed out of the dust of the earth, he was nevertheless a bearer of the image of God. He was placed in a garden which was a place of loveliness and was richly supplied with everything good to behold and to eat. He received the pleasant task of dressing the […]

In my own experience in academia I have sometimes been asked, often in the context of an accreditation visit, “Are women’s voices being heard on campus?” or “Do you think that women’s issues are being addressed?” I have been puzzled by these questions. Do women speak with one voice? And what exactly are “women’s issues”? […]
