Margaret Elizabeth Kostenberger's Bio:
In Jesus and the Feminists: Who Do They Say That He Is? Margaret Elizabeth Köstenberger tells the story of a movement through the stories and writings of its principal figures. Köstenberger explains, “I have tried to supply you with the facts—the story of these women and their views of Jesus—so that you can form your own opinion as to whether their positions are tenable and biblical.” Her survey of the feminist movement reveals the radical misunderstanding of Jesus it has facilitated by investigating a wide range of feminist views—including radical, reformist, and evangelical. Jesus and the Feminists enables readers to recognize the assumptions behind feminist interpretations of Scripture and the consequences of building upon those assumptions. Köstenberger concludes by offering a constructive alternative to all types of feminism in complementarianism. In this way, Jesus and the Feminists guides readers into a better understanding of the biblical message regarding Jesus’ stance toward women and offers both men and women a biblical view of their roles in the church and the home.
