Gender Roles and Relationships in Church and Family

Monday, March 27, 2017, from 4:00pm – 5:30pm

Chapel on the Hill

Abilene Christian University

Australian biblical scholar Dr. Claire Smith will discuss her book, God’s Good Design: What the Bible Really Says About Men and Women. The book interprets key Bible passages about men and women and their relationships at home and in church.  Dr. Smith also narrates the story of changes in her life when she noticed parts of the Bible that challenged previous views.

Dr. Everett Ferguson, ACU Professor of Church History Emeritus, will offer a response.

This event is sponsored by the Center for Heritage and Renewal in Spirituality (CHARIS) at ACU and is open to the public.  A reception will follow the discussion.

The views presented during this event are those of the respective scholars, and are not intended to represent a position taken by ACU.
