Former Soft Complementarian Embraces Gender Equality: Michael F. Bird’s Bourgeois Babes, Bossy Wives, and Bobby Haircuts

Here is some wonderful news! Former soft complementarian, Michael F. Bird. writes on his blog that he has reconsidered what the Bible says about the role of women in ministry. He now upholds “biblical gender equality and the egalitarian view.”

His new book is only available as an ebook:

Bourgeois Babes, Bossy Wives, and Bobby Hair Cuts: A Case for Gender Equality in Ministry
Michael F. Bird (Christmas Day)

Bourgeois Babes, Bossy Wives, and Bobby Haircuts, an original digital short by author Michael Bird, offers an engaging, incisive perspective on biblical gender equality and the egalitarian view—a preference for allowing women to hold teaching and leadership positions in ministry.

What makes this book especially interesting for egalitarians is that Michael has based his change of mind on a careful reading of the Bible. Although there have already been naysayers and critics from the hard and soft complementarian camps, this answers those complementarians who are always claiming that they have the only correct view of what the Bible teaches on this matter.

The ebook will be released by Zondervan on Christmas Day. I think that this book is a little Christmas miracle!

    You may gloat but this is the slippery slope for Dr Michael. First full blown lady teachers, then what? Homosexuality? Bestiality?

      You may mock but I, for one, look forward to Michael coming up with a biblical sourced but critically engaged defence of homosexuality.
