Abstract:

The question of male headship has remained a vexing and often divisive issue in contemporary Christian thought. This insightful volume brings together both sides of the debate, proponents of the concept of an "equal-regard" marriage as well as dissenting voices who advocate male leadership within the family (and often consequently, within the church). With contributions from Mary Stewart Van Leeuwen, Carolyn Osiek, W. Robert Godfrey, Don Browning, and Mary Gallagher, the essays provide thoughtful commentary and critique, substantively engaging other opinions and contrasting views in a charitable manner.
