Amanda Benckhuysen on the Gospel According to Eve -- Resound
Over the centuries, women have read and interpreted the biblical story of Eve, scrutinizing the details of the text to discern God's word for them. Often their investigations led them to insights and interpretations that differed from dominant views that were shaped by men. In her book The Gospel According to Eve, Amanda Benckhuysen traces the history of women's interpretation of Genesis 1-3, readings of Scripture that affirmed women's full humanity and equal worth. Benckhuysen talks with pastor Laura de Jong about her book and its implications for the mission and ministry of men and women in the church today. Amanda W. Benckhuysen is professor of Old Testament at Calvin Seminary and a researcher in biblical interpretation and reception history. Laura de Jong is a pastor at Second Christian Reformed Church in Grand Haven, Michigan, and a graduate of Calvin Seminary.
