Male and Female: Equality and Order in Genesis 1:27 Blog Posting uri icon


  • I’ve recently picked up the Kindle version of Kevin Giles’s book What the Bible Actually Teaches on Women (Eugene: Cascade, 2018). While I’m not in agreement with Giles on every issue, I expect to learn some things from his book. I expect to come to a greater understanding of how egalitarian exegesis works, from an influential and prolific exponent of this position. And I expect to be challenged to see areas where I and other complementarians need to change in some way: perhaps repent, or at least sharpen up. Indeed, I have learnt a number of useful things already (for more, see below).

    Yet I’ve also been a little disappointed at certain points by how Giles treats his complementarian opponents.
