Reformed And Feminist

A Challenge to the Church


This fresh, insightful book explores the nature and function of biblical authority in Christian feminism. Johanna van Wijk-Bos demonstrates, from a Reformed/Calvinist context, the importance of sola Scriptura for feminist biblical studies. Drawing on her personal experiences of an early childhood spent in Nazi-occupied Netherlands and an adolescence in a faith community with a strong Calvinist cast, the author illustrates the ways in which biblical authority undergirds and expands feminist perspectives.
