FORT WORTH, Texas (SWBTS) – Southwestern Seminary vice president for strategic initiatives, Jason Duesing, offers a balanced critique of the book Global Voices on Biblical Equality in the Fall 2010 edition of the Journal for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
Duesing holds to a complementarian position on gender roles within the church, the official position of Southwestern Seminary since trustees affirmed the Danvers Statement on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood in 2009, and points out weaknesses in the perspectives presented in the book.
Duesing says the book presents a “muddled picture of biblical equality” as it espouses a distinctly egalitarian definition of manhood and womanhood. However, he says, “expo­sure to the latest egalitarian perspective provides an opportunity for learning and further understanding of this particular interpretation of biblical equality.”
