'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 'A fresh and very helpful look at the issue of equality for the everyday Christian.' Tola Fisher, Woman Alive

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book digs deep into the roots of equality. With an uncanny ability to curate and communicate information, Penelope grapples with the issues and then helps you to reflect on them for yourself. With historical and biblical examples at your fingertips, this book will be a great tool in your toolkit as you consider again the importance of equality for all people. A fascinating read. * Cathy Madavan, speaker, author and board member of the 'Kyria Network' *
There is no hierarchy of the sexes in the Bible's creation stories. The image of God is universalised. The whole of humankind - every woman as well as every man - shares equally in the responsibility and privilege of being representatives of their creator. The language is deliberate. God's voice undermines the social structure of an ancient world laden with oppressive sexism and violence. This was nothing short of a revolution. It is just as revolutionary today, because as you explore the rest of the biblical record and Church history - not to mention the values of our contemporary society - this foundational principle has long been neglected and even lost. That is why I wholeheartedly recommend Pen Wilcock's eye opening, thought provoking and paradigm shifting book as an agenda for humanity. * Steve Chalke, Founder and Leader of Oasis Global *
A fresh and very helpful look at the issue of equality for the everyday Christian. Pen skilfully takes us through some complex theology at a pace that allows us to dig deep and make some important decisions for ourselves. * Tola Fisher, Editor of Woman Alive *
