Warriors: The Role of Women in the Bible with Carolyn Custis James.

Uncharted with Ines Franklin

There are so many amazing stories about women in the Bible, but often, they are left behind or forgotten. Today on the podcast, I speak with Carolyn Custis James. She is an author of seven books, six of which specifically discuss the role of women within the Word and our world. Some of her books include Finding God in the Margins, which is about the book of Ruth and looking at Ruth from a female perspective. She wrote  Malestrom: Manhood Swept into the Currents of a Changing World, which became Christianity Today's Book of the Year in 2016. Some of her other wonderful books include Half the Church: Recapturing God's Global Vision for Women, Understanding Purpose, Lost Women of the Bible, and When Life and Beliefs Collide: How Knowing God Makes a Difference. Carolyn is a faculty member at Missio Seminary. She is a consultant and editor for Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament, and she was named in 2013 by Christianity Today as one of the 50 Evangelical Women to Watch. I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation with her, and I hope you will too. Learn More at www.inesfranklin.com

S2E13 - Carolyn Custis James: MeToo / #ChurchToo and hope for the future

Monday Morning Pastor

J.R. is excited to announce something that he has been passionately working on the last few months called the Hall of Tyrannus Initiative. In short the vision is “To fund the entire education for 100 pastors at Bible schools/seminaries in poor countries and regions of the world that are hostile to Christianity”. To get involved and for more information on the Hall of Tyrannus Initiative (HTI) check out www.kairospartnerships.org/hti.Our interview today is a heavy yet significant conversation with Carolyn Custis James about the #MeToo / #ChurchToo crisis. Some of us have heard about it and are not sure exactly what it is and how it impacts the Church universal and our local churches. We understand that this conversation scratches the surface of such a large and important topic, so Carolyn was kind enough to share a recent seminar that she led at Missio Seminary for the MMP listeners for an amazing price. Check it out below. Resources: 
Confronting the #MeToo / #ChurchToo Crisis SeminarThis seminar examines the crisis from multiple angles for pastors and ministry leaders. How does church teaching about women and men create an environment that is conducive to sexual abuse and to the protection of perpetrators? How do #MeToo narratives in the Bible provide a vital pastoral resource for raising awareness and creating safety for victims to find help and the care they need? Trauma counseling, legal, and pastoral experts will provide crucial guidance to church leaders in securing professional and legal help, avoiding common mistakes when allegations surface, and becoming leaders in combating this serious crisis.
