This 6×9-inch, 269-page paperback offers an in-depth Biblical analysis of male headship in culture. The book begins with an introduction to feminism in America, including its diversity and the theological climate fostering it. The hermeneutics of evangelical feminists are examined. It then proceeds to the origin and definition of male headship, focusing on creation. Biblical Patriarchy is one of the few books discussing the Biblical fact that in Genesis church and state were part of the family. From there, male headship in the family is examined, noting Biblical definitions of different family relationships and examining the meaning of the term “father” in Biblical culture. In exploring male headship in the church, considerable exegetical documentation is provided for key passages: 1 Corinthians 11 and 14; I Timothy 2; and Galatians 3:28. When it comes to male headship in the state, most complementarian scholars are egalitarian. Is this what Scripture teaches? An appendix examines the subject of rights.
