27: Recovering From Biblical Manhood and Womanhood with Aimee Byrd

Today we’re chatting it up with Aimee Byrd, author of the forthcoming book “Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood” (2020, Zondervan). We’re diving into her critique of the Complimentarianism movement, the word “headship,” and a better way forward in empowering women in the local church. You can read more of Aimee’s stuff at Mortification of Spin.

Passage of the day:

"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." (Genesis 1:27, ESV).
