Vindicating the Vixens

By April 10, 2017December 20th, 2017Gender & Faith, Women, Writing

On March 23 at DTS, I moderated a panel discussion with Dr. Glenn Kreider, Sarah Bowler, Sharifa Stevens, Dr. Timothy Ralston, and Karla Zazueta about women in the Bible whom we have either vilified or marginalized. Vindicating the Vixens (Kregel Academic, forthcoming) is the result of a diverse team of 16 male and female theologians who’ve partnered to take a second look at vilified and marginalized women in the Bible, and we got some of the contributors in Dallas together to talk about our findings. The church has often viewed women’s stories through sexist eyes, resulting in a range of distortions. In this panel discussion, three of us DTS profs and three graduates talk about the women we explored.

    Thoroughly enjoyable!
    So many of these women have been misread throughout time, I appreciate these authors’ willingness to re-examine the traditions and assumptions that have been handed down. Accurate handling of the Scriptures will surely lead to a more accurate and well-placed faith.
    I’m looking forward to getting my hands on this book when it comes out in the fall.
