An Historian Looks at 1 Timothy 2:11–14
The Authentic Traditional Interpretation and Why It Disappeared
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"For years 1 Timothy 2:11-14 has been at the center of an exegetical firestorm prompted by the ongoing debate over what the Bible says about women's place in church and society. Providing new grist for an old mill, J. G. Brown poses a bold challenge to those who appeal to the 'traditional' argument that complementarianism is embedded in the creational order. This invocation of tradition, Brown provocatively argues, is misguided precisely because it is historically unfounded."
