In Finally Feminist, John Stackhouse proposes a way forward by affirming both the patriarchal and the feminist (or complementarian and egalitarian) reading of Scripture. He argues that these emphases exist side by side in the Bible. He then provides biblical, theological, and practical arguments for his own understanding: Equality is the biblical ideal, but patriarchy is allowed and regulated by a God who has larger kingdom purposes in mind. Stackhouse then tests his understanding by exposing it to the objections of other theories and concludes with two appendixes that tease out some practical implications.

This is a clear and engaging articulation of a fresh set of evangelical perspectives on gender. Full of intriguing theological and exegetical suggestions and written with disarming frankness, Stackhouse’s book seeks to stimulate good argument and counterargument, and it surely deserves to be debated long and hard.

John Webster, professor, St. Mary’s College, University of St. Andrews

This book is remarkable not only for its wisdom about gender relations but also for the method Stackhouse employs for reading difficult biblical texts. His strategy is to start with the big question: How does God act, as depicted throughout the Bible? He then asks what conclusions we can draw for understanding God’s purposes in gender relations. He has an answer that speaks to both sides of this thorny debate.

—Nancey Murphy, professor of Christian philosophy, Fuller Theological Seminary
