Global Voices on Biblical Equality

Women and Men Serving Together in the Church

Edited by Aída Besançon Spencer, William David Spencer, and Mimi Haddad

Biblical equality is a burgeoning, global reform movement led by scholars and leaders not only in North America, but also on every continental land mass in the world. What inroads is biblical equality making around the globe? What is its appeal? What still needs reform? How is biblical equality transforming each culture? In this book, female and male writers who are ethnically part of every continent explore the contextual challenges, successes, and adaptations of engaging the biblical text on gender and ministry.

Chapters cover Asia and Asian America (India, China, Korean America), Africa (Zimbabwe), African America, Latin America (Native America, Hispanic America, Brazilian America), Western Europe, Australia, and North America.

In addition to the editors, contributors include Ellen Alexander, Beulah Wood, Cecilia Yau, Matthew D. Kim, Constantine M. Murefu, Darin Vincent Poullard, Sandra Gatlin Whitley, Awilda Gonzalez-Tejera, John Runyon, Eliana Marques Runyon, Elke Werner, Roland Werner, Kevin Giles, and Roberta Hestenes.
