While evangelicalism dukes it out about who can be church leaders, the rest of the 98% of us need to be well-equipped to see where we fit in God's household and why that matters. The Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood course will help improve the culture of our churches and disciple men and women to read, understand, and apply Scripture together within them. Until both men and women grow in their understanding of their relationship to Scripture, there will continue to be tension between the sexes in the church.
This course explores questions such as: Do men and women benefit equally from God's Word? Are they equally responsible in sharpening one another in the faith and passing it down to the next generation? Do we need men's Bibles and women's Bibles, or can the one, holy Bible guide us all? Is the Bible, God's Word, so male-centered and authored that women need to create their own resources to relate to it?
The Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood course, featuring author and speaker Aimee Byrd, explore the feminine voice in Scripture as synergistic with the dominant male voice. Lessons fortify believers in a biblical understanding of brotherhood and sisterhood in God's household and the necessity of learning from one another in studying God's Word. This series helps to correct biblicist trends in the church today, affirming that we do not read God's Word alone, but within our interpretive covenant communities--our churches. The responsibility of every believer, men and women together, is being active and equal participants in and witnesses to the faith.
