The discussion around biblical womanhood comes with a host of baggage and qualifications. The spectrum ranges from viewing biblical femininity as a prerequisite for salvation, to disdaining any distinction between men’s and women’s roles at all. In this conversation, Bethany and Abigail Dodds set aside the labels and stereotypes to simply focus on what faithfulness looks like as Christian women. Continuing our series on good theology, they discuss how our beliefs about God inform our view of our roles as women. Abigail also offers practical advice for applying what the Bible has to say about womanhood to your life.
