What to Do With a Pharisee

Hat-tip to one of my favorite Titus 2 Women, Corrie, for posting this on TW:

““There are some who have no understanding to hear the truth of freedom and insist upon their goodness as means for salvation. These people you must resist, do the very opposite, and offend them boldly lest by their impious views they drag many with them into error. For the sake of liberty of the faith do other things which they regarded as the greatest of sins… use your freedom constantly and consistently in the sight of and despite the tyrants and stubborn so that they may learn that they are impious, that their law and works are of no avail for righteousness, and that they had no right to set them up.

Martin Luther””

Books on the Docket

I really want to delve into these issues from a theological perspective.  The issues run much deeper then just “submission” and “gender roles.”  I’m going to get into the Word- deep into the Word.  I’ll be reading books on both sides of the issues and I thought I would list out the books I plan to read or have read and will be discussing (in no particular order):

Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womandhood

Discovering Biblical Equality

The Trinity and Subordinationism

So Much More

Passionate Housewives, Desperate for God

Danvers Statement

Raising Maidens of Virtue

Different by Design

Domestic Tranquility

Finally Feminist

The Excellent Wife

Reforming Marriage

The Fruit of Her Hands

Fascinating Womanhood

Men and Women in the Church

Paul, Women, and Wives

Lost Women of the Bible

When Life and Beliefs Collide

Biblical Womanhood in the Home

The Feminist Mistake

Biblical Foundations of Manhood and Womanhood

Equality in Christ

Women, Creation, and the Fall

Evangelical Feminism and Biblical Truth

Some of these are not theological (So Much More, Passionate Housewives, Raising Maidens, Fascinating Womanhood, Lost Women of the Bible…), but they are indicative of what is out there and what is being sold to women on both sides of the fence.  I am sure I will need a brain break once in a while.  This is a really big list and I am sure this will take many MANY months of reading, maybe even years.  But I am looking forward to it.
