Über diesen Titel
This text depicts the long-running battle within the fundamentalist movement over the roles of men and women both within the church and outside it. Drawing on interviews and written sources, the author surveys the interplay between fundamentalist theology and fundamentalist practice.From Library Journal:
Debates over women's full participation simmer within many religious groups as well as in the larger society. Bendroth, a lecturer at Andover-Newton Theological Seminary, concisely investigates the roots of this battle within Christian fundamentalism and its precursor, the revivalist tradition. Bendroth discusses the interplay between biblical interpretation and cultural developments, but though she extensively documents trends from 1875 through 1960, she leaves subsequent decades less fully examined. She does give this last period a short yet provocative epilog, arguing that recent controversies have "virtually replayed arguments thoroughly explored nearly a century before" but with little progress toward resolution; she then suggests new areas of inquiry that promise productive investigation. A valuable addition to academic and larger general collections.
