Madang Podcast: Beth Allison Barr, Ep. 28
Madang is the outdoor living room of the world. Here, we invite you to sit and tune into unreserved, remarkable conversations with renown authors, leaders, public figures and scholars on religion, culture and everything in-between.
This has been a dream of mine for many years and now it is a reality. Please join me at Madang.
This is the 28th episode of Madang where I converse with Beth Allison Barr on her book, The Making of Biblical Womanhood.
Beth Allison Barr is the James Vardaman Endowed Professor of History at Baylor University. Her specialties include European women, medieval and early modern England and church history. She earned her PhD in Medieval History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is the bestselling author of The Making of Biblical Womanhood: How the Subjugation of Women Became Gospel Truth. She is also a pastor’s wife and mom of two great kids.
Today, she shares about being a pastor’s wife, what led to writing her bestselling book, Paul’s letters about women, Christian household codes, Reformation theology about women and so much more.
“Abelard isn’t a feminist by any stretch of the imagination. He’s just a pretty good theologian who is married to a very strong woman.” Beth Allison Barr
