Beth Allison Barr: The Making of Biblical Womanhood

This week Casey interviews Dr. Beth Allison Barr on her forthcoming book, The Making of Biblical Womanhood (Brazos Press). This outstanding book is a study on the deep historical (and not necessarily theological or biblical) roots of patriarchy. Seriously, this book is great and our conversation was a lot of fun. 
Mentioned in this episode: What does the Epic of Gilgamesh have to teach us about patriarchy? What did Paul really mean in the classic "complimentarian" texts? How does capitalism make the problems inherent in patriarchy worse for women? And, mainly, "how did we get here and where do we go now??"
