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 *
