The question of male headship has remained a vexing and often divisive issue in contemporary Christian thought. This insightful volume brings together both sides of the debate, proponents of the concept of an "equal-regard" marriage as well as dissenting voices who advocate male leadership within the family (and often consequently, within the church). With contributions from Mary Stewart Van Leeuwen, Carolyn Osiek, W. Robert Godfrey, Don Browning, and Mary Gallagher, the essays provide thoughtful commentary and critique, substantively engaging other opinions and contrasting views in a charitable manner.
This is not just another book on the perennial issue of male headship. In contrast to those many who regard Christianity as the great source of male domination, this book argues that authentic Christianity does not teach that husbands have spiritual superiority over their wives, and its authors listen to and engage voices that still claim that it does. Written by distinguished Protestant and Roman Catholic scholars, the book first demonstrates how deep strands of the Christian tradition have always taught an ethic of gender mutuality, sowing the seeds for what is today called the "equal-regard marriage." Though patriarchy was pervasive in the ancient world surrounding early Christianity and sometimes influenced the church, new research shows that the earliest layers of Christianity both resisted and worked to transform it. Not every author in the book agrees with this point of view; dissenters have their say too. As a whole, "Does Christianity Teach Male Headship? constitutes a robust debate that, finally, invites readers to decide.Contributors: David BlankenhornDon BrowningLisa Sowle CahillAllan C.
