[ This is not something that we have done before, but given the boldness of John Piper’s recent remarks that Christianity must have “a masculine feel,” (LGT: Scot’s McKnight’s summary) I felt compelled to post my editorial for our forthcoming print issue here, as it is a response to Piper that states in no uncertain terms that we do not share his vision of the Kingdom of God. ]

As I sit down to write this editorial,

the internet has been abuzz for the last couple of weeks over John Piper’s recent comments that Christianity must necessarily have “a masculine feel.” I do not want to demonize John Piper, and even here at Englewood Christian Church, we bear the baggage of a long history of thinking and abiding in a masculine-dominated fashion similar to that described by Piper.  However, we must be clear, this sort of patriarchy is a part of the old older of things that is passing away.  The Kingdom of God is a new order in which there is no Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female (Gal. 3:28).  Paul’s point in this passage, as he makes clear in the latter part of the same verse, is not that we should deny these characteristics, but that in Christ’s new creation, they no longer serve to divide us.  Jesus put it more directly, his way was not one of domination (Matt. 20:25-28).

Issue #4 (Ordinary Time / Fall) will be mailed early next week…
The Cover is pictured below (Click image to enlarge…)
***CLICK HERE for the Table of Contents…

I suppose it’s fitting that although the Church’s season of Ordinary Time begins after Pentecost in the early weeks of summer, our Ordinary Time issue arrives as people are settling back into the ordinariness of fall rhythms. Summer is often characterized as the season to get away and relax, but there’s also a peace in returning to the regular rhythms of work and school; we can even relax a bit once we settle into these rhythms.
In this new issue, we feature reviews that come at these themes from a number of different angles. We interview Christian Smith, and have reviews of books by Miroslav Volf (Reviewed by Debra Dean Murphy), Peter Enns, Ernesto Cardenal, Geraldine Brooks, Tony Jones and more!
