Progressive Evangelicals and the Pursuit of Social Justice

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter describes the emergence of contemporary biblical feminism in the progressive evangelical movement, highlighting their public theology and biblical interpretations for gender egalitarianism. It also argues that the support of evangelical leaders for biblical feminism was crucial when it faced attacks from conservative evangelicals from the 1970s to 1980s. Biblical feminism opened opportunities for women to claim the right to obey God's call in sharing their testimonies and preaching. The feminist movement helped in improving many aspects of women's equality and in transforming many features of the American culture.

Keywords:   public theology, gender egalitarianism, conservative evangelicals, women's equality
