Carl, Todd, and Aimee are joined by Rachel Green Miller. She writes for the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, and has a blog of her own. Rachel has recently published her first book, titled Beyond Authority and Submission: Women and Men in Marriage, Church, and Society. Rachel conducted several years of research into the history of women in different eras, and—in the book—compares and contrasts those findings with the biblical perspective of men and women in marriage and society.

Rachel makes the case that, throughout history, Christianity has responded to the secular view of women. But, were there times when those responses were excessive, therefore distorting the biblical view of manhood and womanhood? Should we be constantly preoccupied with who owns or wields the power in any type of relationship between the sexes? Join us for intriguing conversation about this hot topic!

I’m sad about the state of theology today. Very sad. But before we shake our heads, we need to begin in our own circles.

Are you who you were when you were 17? I hope not, but I also hope you didn't sexually assault others.
