Sisters of the Spirit: part of Newtown Winter Lecture Series
Sisters of the Spirit: a conversation on the Bible and women as agents of God's salvation and liberation.
with Rt Rev Dr Eleanor Sanderson, Assistant Bishop of Wellington; and Bronwyn Kerr; and introduction by Rev Richard Noble.
Until the last century, the Christian Bible has had a dominant role in shaping the worldview and values of 'Western' societies. In the 'post-Christian' era, the authority and credibility of the Bible has been called into question, including by secular feminists, who have often understood the Bible to be inherently patriarchal. This session explores whether the Bible in fact tells subversive stories of women that not only value their personhood and action, but also portrays them as integral to the 'big story' of God's salvation and liberation, and so might be a spiritual resource for contemporary women.
