See this announcement from Denny Burk, the outstanding Editor of the Journal for Biblical Manhood & Womanhood. CBMW has produced JBMW for three decades now and continues to produce a rich body of gospel-fired content aimed at helping the church to think biblically and theologically about challenges and opportunities related to gender and sexuality. The journal, as ever, is free for readers, though we produce it at considerable cost in terms of investment and time.
I’m eager to dig into this edition, with contributions from leading young complementarians like Andrew Walker, David Schrock, Courtney Reissig, and Lauren Lambert (wife of ACBC Executive Director Heath Lambert). This is a major part of our present work at CBMW: to identify the next generation of complementarian leaders who are fueled by a love for Christ and the health of his church.
(In this issue, I expanded on my blog post on the “gay Christian” terminology.)
Enough intro. Here’s Denny’s announcement:
