Mutuality Article on Women in Mormonism

(Originally posted at ClobberBlog)

Mutuality is a quarterly magazine published by Christians for Biblical Equality. The theme for this season’s issue was “Building a Bridge to People of Other Faiths,” so I submitted an article on women in Mormonism entitled, “How Wide the Divide, and Can Biblical Equality Bridge It?” My article is approximately 1800 words long and covers the status of women in Mormonism, the use of egalitarianism in dialogue with Mormons, and the possibility that Christian egalitarianism can serve as an evangelism tool among Mormons.

Unfortunately, the article is not available online. If you’d like to read it, you’re welcome to e-mail me and I’ll share a copy with you. If you are disinclined to request the article from me, a copy of the Autumn 2010 issue of Mutuality can be purchased at the CBE Bookstore for $6.

  1. Where have I seen that title before? 🙂 Did Kaimi come up with that one on T&S, or was that your creation?

  2. The title comes from How Wide the Divide?: A Mormon and an Evangelical in Conversation by Craig L. Blomberg and Stephen E. Robinson. It was published in 1997 and it was a real groundbreaker in terms of dialogue between the two traditions.

    Lots of people have alluded to the title in Mormon-Evangelical-themed posts, including Kaimi when he did his “How Wide the Divide, and Can We Ever Bridget?” post at Times & Seasons. I was worried that it might be a little overdone, but I decided to go with it anyways.
