B 21 Gender and the New Testament

The male-female issue is one of the central and most debated topics in the church's use of the Bible. Gone are the days when simple principles can be stated and followed - it now seems as though texts can mean almost opposite things to different people.

This booklet offers an appraisal and suggests a way forward in the form of six proposals about interpreting the New Testament. It argues that we must take biblical theology as seriously as biblical exegesis if Scripture is to become the word of God to the church today.
