'Digs deep into the roots of equality. . . A fascinating read.'
Cathy Madavan, Kyria Network
Women have proved their equality with men in leadership, scholarship and exercising spiritual gifts, but traditional interpretations of Scripture mean that leadership is still viewed by many as the preserve of men. Penelope Wilcock argues that Christ's new and living way leads us out of all forms of dominance and subjugation, including imprisonment within gender roles. She proposes a reading of Scripture that respects its authority while embracing the full equality of women and men in the eyes of God.
I wholeheartedly recommend Pen Wilcock's eye-opening, thought-provoking and paradigm-shifting book as an agenda for humanity.'
Steve Chalke, Oasis Global
