Review Partners in Christ: A Conservative Case for Egalitarianism John G.Jr. Stackhouse Ø 2 Review Partners in Christ: A Conservative Case for Egalitarianism Download ↠ 2 And that they should pray and prophesy It calls wives the weaker partner and says that men and women are eual When it comes to understanding what Scripture says about men and women those on both sides of the debate can and do marshal strong evidence from the Bible Why are they able to do this John Stackhouse boldly contends it is because Scripture in fact says both things Does the Bible contradict itself then Not so Rather Stackhouse describes the single approach in Scripture that guides us with clear direction on these important matters of relationships in the church and the family Are you looking for an approach that takes the whole Bible into account and not just bits and pieces of it While treating Scripture with utmost seriousness Stackhouse moves us all beyond the impasse in this important debate I ve been in the complementarian camp for the entirety of my Christian life That said I would consider myself uite open to ideas from the other side of the aisle Indeed my closest friend believes uite vehemently in the biblical justification for female clergy I have dabbled in the literature only in limited fashion but my discussions have been with a fairly large sample of people And so I believe that I have a general lay of the land with regard to the popular arguments on both sidesWith that said I found Partners in Christ to be a welcome addition to the debate In fact I can easily say that this book is the best I ve ever read on the subject from the egalitarian perspective There are several reasons for this For one Stackhouse is widely read on either side of the issue and is not prone to offering up straw men to score a cheap rhetorical victory Neither does he write with a chip on his shoulder To the contrary he comes across as warm to those on the complementarian side explaining how he started in that camp himself There is no sense of cynicism or vindictiveness in his writing which is a breath of fresh air in today s hostile climate on such topics His spirit is well expressed on page 132 There has been too much antagonism even violence in this debate My prayer instead has been to follow the scriptural injunction Let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds Heb 1024 If you have been provoked I pray God that he and you will channel that provocation into positive reflection and spiritual fruit from which many women and men will benefit to the glory of his name I also appreciate Stackhouse s conservative case for egalitarianism He does not simply dismiss a large chunk of the New Testament corpus as pseudepigrapha for being inconvenient to his points as many others in his camp too readily do eg Steve Chalke Instead he holds a very high view of Scripture viewing the totality as inspired and authoritative He thus contends with most of the tough passages though he still carries a dismissive view of some see footnote He rejects liberal approaches This suggestion that parts of the Bible should be read as corrections to other parts and even that some parts could serve to provoke even God to reconsideration will be nonsense for traditional Christians who understand God to be in fact the Author of the Bible behind and within all of the various human writers of its component parts Page 146Page 71 offers a fair and concise summary of the book s principal thesis When society was patriarchal as it was in the New Testament context and as it has been everywhere in the world except in modern society in our day then the church avoided scandal by going along with patriarchy even as the Bible ameliorated it and made women s situation better than it was under any other culture s gender code Now however that our modern society is at least officially egalitarian the scandal ironically enough is that the church is not going along with society not rejoicing in the unprecedented freedom to let women and men serve according to gift and call without an arbitrary gender line With this line of argumentation I commend Stackhouse for keeping the gospel as priority in this debate Taking a modern day missionary as an example he believes it appropriate to accommodate a traditional culture in order to reach them with the message of the gospel rather than to scandalize them with egalitarianism that might turn them off to the message of forgiveness This in fact is what he hypothesizes as the modus operandi of both Jesus and Paul they could not be feminist in their respective ministries because the culture at the time was not ready They had no desire to jeopardize their primary mission by dying on the hill of an important but secondary issueStackhouse is well argued in his exegetical interpretations He warns of the dangers of a simple prooftexting battle and suggests that rather than digging our heals into a few supposedly ironclad passages that favor our position we should instead take a bird s eye view of the Scripture and especially the New Testament to determine what the preponderance of the texts are communicating with regard to genderWhile I appreciate his approach I ultimately don t find his interpretation of a trajectory ethic to be satisfying enough to dismantle the traditional understandings of the relevant passages and themes in the Gospels and Epistles While I concede the idea of a double message implicit in many of these and other passages of the New Testament I don t find it to be enough to overthrow the seemingly clear instructions about church government or male headship Indeed even he admits on page 84 that the varied attempts by egalitarians to reinterpret the Ephesians submission passage come across as rather inadeuateOne issue I took with Stackhouse was his apparent presupposition that a role of subordination is tantamount to a status of inferiority But then we have to consider this uestion Why would God call entirely eual sexes to deeply different roles ever and always world without end Why indeed would one role be that of leadership and the other of submission if women and men are not only eual in status and dignity before God but eual in every other way as well Page 89Though he seems to walk back that presupposition on page 98 it does feel as though this is a bedrock of his issues with male headship A common reply to this proposition is to draw an analogy with the relationship between God the Father and God the Son wherein all good Trinitarians can at once affirm the subordination of the Son to the Father as well as the ontological coeuality of bothStackhouse responds to this The problem I have with the complementarian reference to the Trinity in regard to gender is that it is a bad theological move to attempt by anyone on any side of this issue Any strong parallels between the inner life of the Trinity and human relationships just aren t there page 96But here he surprisingly misses the point Of course any analogy between the inner life of the Trinity and any created thing will be of necessity a travesty This I happily admit However the point being made is a bare one that a role of subordination is not per se a status of ontological inferiority That alone undercuts the aforementioned presupposition While we may feel an instinctive revulsion of the idea of God ordained hierarchical roles we must as disciples submit to our orders rather than our instinctsAlthough I wasn t convinced by Stackhouse s many points I am willing to admit that he reveals several inconsistencies in my camp I agreed when he stated that most complementarians approve of albeit silently for many the missionary exception for female church leaders Further our camp holds in high regard the underground church movement in China whose congregations are largely led by women I can admit that I don t think the complementarian side has an entirely satisfactory theology for such work Although there are some complementarians that are making attempts eg Sam Storms has posted some recent articles in favor of calling certain women pastors but not elders which seems to walk about as close to line as possible without jumping overIn summary I think Partners in Christ makes a fine addition to the debate And while I was not convinced enough to leave behind complementarian interpretations I think every complementarian should at least read this book and consider the argumentsFootnote eg his comment about 1 Cor 14 on page 96 that virtually no defender of patriarchy in North America today believes in head coverings even though they might employ the passage in their biblical arguments for complementarianism While this may be a fair point about inconsistency in many even most complementarians there are indeed many today who favor head coverings in prayer contexts Indeed much of non Western Christendom and the majority report of church history up until 150 years
