CBMW and Thoughts on “New Wave Complementarianism”

CBMW and Thoughts on “New Wave Complementarianism” May 8, 2013

Over at CBMW, I just wrote in response to a new and interesting development in complementarian theology. Below you’ll get a sense for what’s brewing:

Recently a brand-new conversation began among complementarians. Wendy Alsup wrote a post called “A New Wave of Complementarianism” that met with an enthusiastic online response. Many took note, and key leaders weighed in, including Kevin DeYoung and Thabiti Anyabwile.

Any discussion on complementarianism is inherently interesting and important to me, and so this one has had my attention. I’ve waited to respond to Alsup’s post because I wanted to think carefully about it and to give it time to circulate. I’m thankful for the characteristically careful and gracious words both Kevin and Thabiti offered, and second them. I’m also thankful for the many friends who have weighed in through posts and comments. This has been a sprawling and invaluable discussion group, and it has cost CBMW considerably less than flying all complementarians to one location.

We are directly involved in all this, and I think it’s time for a few thoughts.

Read the whole piece for my thoughts on this development.
