Annotated Bibliography for Gender Related Articles in 2004
Journal for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
In this issue of the journal we profile some of the most significant gender-related articles from 2004. Here is a brief reminder about the categories we are using and our intent in using them. By Complementarian we simply seek to designate an author who recognizes the full personal equality of the sexes, coupled with an acknowledgment of role distinctions in the home and church. By Egalitarian then, we intend to classify evangelicals who see only undifferentiated equality, i.e., affirming they see no scriptural warrant for male headship in the home or the church. Under the Non-Evangelical heading, we have classified important secular works as well as articles that broach the subject of biblical gender issues from a religious, albeit, non-evangelical point of view. This category also serves as our classification for Liberal scholars wanting to retain some sort of Christian identity. Finally, under the Undeclared heading, we have listed those articles that do not give sufficient indication of their fundamental stance for us to classify them more specifically.

With respect to abortion rights, this demand is then inserted into public policy by way of agitating for the absolute reproductive autonomy of women. In turning to a brief critique, Branch notes that the

worldview of radical feminism grows out of a key theological error, namely the embrace of pantheism. This theological mis-step then, naturally leads to sexual chaos and the intergenerational violence that is committed in the name of abortion rights.
