An excellent compilation of level-headed essays on the tricky but, in the author's reckoning, imperative interplay between being feminist in a Christian setting, and being a Christian in a feminist setting. Neither environment has historically been particularly welcoming. These essays try to clarify misunderstandings and provide biblically-rooted analysis of the intersection between the philosophy of feminism and the character and ministry of Christ, and latterly the outspoken Paul of Tarsus.

An excellent example of a book that's positively complicating the discussion surrounding gender and the evangelical church.
