The 50+ ordained women who attended the Assemblies of God Conference yesterday were wonderfully responsive and full of outstanding questions. Vicki Judd, who led the conference emailed me, “It was a joy and an honor to have you teach today. The feedback from our ladies has been phenomenal. Thank you so much for sharing your joy and passion with us today.”

Man and Woman, One in Christ is included in the list of 99 important theological works from the time of Augustine to the present at http://theologydegreesonline.com/important-books/ It is #8 on the list. The list is introduced: “there are a few books that have achieved such insight and lucidity that anyone interested in Christian theology should take the time to read them.”
On April 11 in in Renton, WA, I had the joy of presenting two plenary sessions with Q&A at the annual conference of the International Fellowship of Ministries.

I just wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful class. (more…)
Philip B. Payne’s class on Women, the Bible and the Church was one of the best classes I have ever taken in seminary. It showed the importance of being able to read the Greek text and to know how to use the resources that are available to help us read the Greek text and the English text better. Prof. Payne is an extremely detail-oriented person. This is the exact quality that makes the best textual critics. He is an avid lover of Jesus, which makes him a great seminary professor. (more…)
If you are in the area, I would love to see you at one of my upcoming talks in Washington, Texas, Uganda, and Kenya.

I have been overwhelmed and greatly encouraged with positive student feedback from my course at Fuller Seminary Nothwest on “Women, the Bible, and the Church.” Following is just one message:
I want you to know what an absolute privilege it has been to sit under your tutelage this quarter. I am so amazed at how the Lord has woven your life together with all the experiences He has brought your way. I do believe you are doing what the Lord has called you to do and on that great day (if you are not hearing it now in your spirit) when you see Him face to face, I know you will hear “Well done, good and faithful servant”. Dr. Payne, you are a gift to the Church, the body of Christ. Thank you for sharing all your wisdom and years of research with us. It was truly a privilege for me to sit under such quality and inspired teaching. (more…)
Kevin Giles, a Biblical Theologian well known for his carefully researched books on Paul and Gender and the Trinity, has kindly authorized me to post his insightful study, “The word ‘role’ in complementarian literature”:
In post 1970s ‘complementarian’ literature the term ‘role’ plays a fundamental part. If honest communication is to take part between ‘complementarians’ and egalitarians the use of this word must be put on the table and carefully examined. (more…)
