- Should women be allowed to lead in the church and the home?
- What does the Bible mean when it calls Eve "helper"?

Over five lectures, the series provides a comprehensive overview on the Bible's teaching of shared leadership between men and women. Specific topics include the Old and New Testaments, church history, strategies for justice, and working cross culturally.
