Jesus and the Feminists

Jesus and the Feminists

$22.99

Paperback
This resource provides a detailed survey and critique of various feminist interpretations of Jesus and offers a biblical view of men and women in the church and home.

^^The feminist movement has affected every aspect of political and social America, and Christians are becoming increasingly aware of how this movement has impacted the church.

^^The feminist movement has changed the way evangelicals view not only themselves, but also the very Word of God.

^^Jesus and the Feminists begins by offering a brief survey of the feminist movement, revealing the radical misunderstanding of Jesus that has resulted from this movement. Kostenberger then critiques the relevant works of well-known feminist scholars and the ways they interpret certain passages of Scripture related to Jesus and his approach to women.

^^This practical resource points the way to a better understanding of the biblical message regarding Jesus' stance toward women and offers both men and women a biblical view of their roles in the church and the home.



- Publisher "Dr. Kouml;stenberger gives us a here a solid, sad, scrupulously fair case study of ideology deflecting exegesis over an entire generation. She shows conclusively that the attempts of a long series of scholars to find Jesus affirming women's leadership in some way have entirely failed. Surely this is an important cautionary tale for our times." - J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College"Who is Jesus? Was he a chauvinist? A feminist crusader? Or an egalitarian emancipator of women? In this significant work, Marny Kouml;stenberger investigates whether the portraits of Jesus painted by proponents of women's equality truly fit the Gospel narrative. Her analysis of underlying hermeneutics is careful and concise. Her conclusions, balanced and well-reasoned. Is Jesus who they say he is? This is a valuable resource for all who seek to answer this all-important question." - Mary A. Kassian, Author and Speaker, Alabaster Flask Ministries"Feminism has left its imprint on virtually every aspect of Western culture, including the Christian faith and the interpretation of the Scriptures. Margaret Kouml;stenberger expertly surveys the scholarly work of feminists on the person of Jesus Christ. We are treated to the entire landscape of feminist scholarship on Jesus, from radical feminists to egalitarian evangelicals. Most important, Kouml;stenberger subjects the claims of feminist scholarship to critical scrutiny, showing that they fail to measure up with the teaching of Scripture. Kouml;stenberger's criticisms are irenic, but at the same time they show the deficiencies of the feminist paradigm." - Thomas R. Schreiner, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary"All interested in the development of feminism in the 20th century will greatly appreciate the excellent scholarship and fair descriptive analysis offered by Margaret Kouml;stenberger. Evangelicals in particular will applaud the effort to set the record straight on Jesus. Numerous feminist distortions of Jesus and his own understanding and treatment of women are discussed with care, while showing them to be far from the gospels' own portrayal, rightly understood. The role of hermeneutics is central in this discussion, and Jesus and the Feminists provides an excellent case-study on just why a correct hermeneutic matters. Even more to the point: getting Jesus right matters! Kouml;stenberger should be commended for winsome and scholarly dismantling of feminist distortions of Jesus thus providing assistance toward this goal." - Bruce A. Ware, Professor of Christian Theology, Senior Associate Dean, School of Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary"Margaret Kouml;stenberger succeeds at bringing historical perspective to bear on feminist understanding of Scripture and Christ. Her analyses of radical, reformist, and evangelical wings of this movement are methodical, clear, thorough, and mature. Her findings are highly significant. They force the question: Is Jesus Lord over Western culture's ideologies or their servant? Today a new generation stands poised to replace the aging leaders who ushered feminism into our churches. Kouml;stenberger points the way to honor their concerns while avoiding their unjustified concessions." - Robert W. Yarbrough, Associate Professor of New Testament and New Testament Department Chair, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School"Margaret Elizabeth Kouml;stenberger has done a remarkable job in linking carefully documented scholarly research with very practical conclusions in such a way as to enable students and scholars to explore what interpretations feminists are peddling in the marketplace of ideas. Even lay women who have questions and personal struggles with the bombardment of post-modernism will be a
