What a wonderful conversation even if slightly triggering for me. IMHO: theologian,Dr Cherith Nordling, is someone to add to this conversation.
This was a fantastic interview. Thank you for bringing these great women together. I've got two of those three books. "Jesus and John Wayne" described my Southern California Evangelical upbringing perfectly. I was brought up listening to James Dobson and being brought up in the military-industrial complex DeMez mentions. The spiritual abuse in our churches is unbelievable.
The next step is to talk about the spiritual abuse surrounding DIVORCE in our churches. Our churches pressure women to stay in abusive marriages and use the Bible to batter them.
I'd recommend THE LIFE-SAVING DIVORCE, which takes the topic from an Evangelical standpoint and critiques the same things these three women are talking about: patriarchy, male control of Scriptural understanding, and female subservience.
