Tom Schreiner, ‘Women in Ministry and The Blue Parakeet’

Tom SchreinerOn this first edition of ‘The Boyce Forum,’ Denny Burk talks to Tom Schreiner about Scot McKnight’s new book The Blue Parakeet and the topic of women in ministry.

A couple of weeks ago Tom Schreiner contacted The Journal for Biblical Manhood & Womanhood (for which I am the editor) and expressed interest in writing a review of Scot McKnight’s new book The Blue Parakeet: Rethinking How You Read the Bible. We were delighted to let him write the review for us and plan on publishing the review in the Spring 2009 issue of the journal. In advance of its publication in JBMW, the review essay will appear next week on the Gender Blog of the Council for Biblical Manhood & Womanhood.

I sat down last week with Tom to discuss McKnight’s book in particular and the gender debate in general. Tom’s contribution to the evangelical discussion on gender has been substantial, and we were honored to have him as a guest. Among other things, he wrote the article on 1 Corinthians 11 for the book Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and edited the watershed work titled Women in the Church: A Fresh Analysis of I Timothy 2:9-15.

Tom’s assessment of The Blue Parakeet is very critical and spot-on. So after listening to this podcast, you’ll want to be sure to read Tom’s review on the Gender Blog next week.
