There is a gridlock in churches today regarding the role of women. This debate extends beyond the relationship between men and women. In 1 Corinthians 11:3, when Paul says, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God, he is drawing a parallel between the relationship of men and women and the relationship of the Father and the Son within the Trinity. This book explores the controversial theological premise that, while maintaining equality of essence, functionally the Son is eternally subordinate to the Father and women are permanently subordinate to men. Nancy Hedberg shares from her research and personal experience to make the case that equality of essence on the one hand, and permanent functional subordination on the other-whether applied to the Trinity or the relationship between men and women-is a questionable premise and is not supported logically, historically, or biblically. Women, Men, and the Trinity includes contemporary, historical, and biblical research regarding functional and essential equality and explores the practical implications of true equality.
