Women and Men After Christendom

Full Product Description

Women and Men After Christendom explores the way that gender relationships changed under Christendom and then
after Christendom, challenging us to rethink gender relations in both church and society.

Fran Porter goes beyond the personal aspects of gender identity to structural, philosophical and theological considerations; and offers a paradigm for gender relationships different to the oppositional models that currently prevail.

This book argues for Christian understanding and practice that takes the hierarchy out of gender relationships. It demonstrates how the structures and mindsets of male dominance and female subordination have been and still are perpetuated, and offers alternative understanding rooted in biblical and theological reflection.

From the gospel witness and the lives of the first Christians, through the patriarchal gender order of Christendom, to the challenges of equality movements, and the impact of our theological imagination on the social relations between women and men, this book traces how unequal gender power relations are both entangled and defied, inviting Christian communities to explore non-hierarchical ways of relating between women and men.

Women and Men After Christendom by Fran Porter was published by Paternoster in March 2015 and is our 51722nd best seller. The ISBN for Women and Men After Christendom is 9781842277591.

"This is an accessible read about the complex topic of gender, Christendom and post Christendom. For those seeking to explore the history of gender relationships in the church from the first century this is an excellent introduction." - Dianne Tidball, East Midland Baptist Association, UK

"Through careful handling of the argument, Fran Porter helps us to glimpse that vision of what the new community of Christ, the new kin-work he inaugurated, could look like - and how the church, in the way she is in the world, can be radical good news for men and women everywhere." - Sian Murray Williams, Tutor in Worship Studies at Bristol Baptist College
