A few years back when I was teaching at NNU, I remember a graduating senior female ministry major asking the following question: "What should I say if I'm interviewing at a church and they ask me if I'm a feminist?" My reply: "You should say 'of course I am, and you should be too.'" Perhaps not the most prudent advice, even if the embedded claim is true.

I continue to be puzzled by the resistance to feminism from evangelical circles.

One of my new colleagues just posted this at Patheos. I wish I'd had this to give my student (and many others) while at NNU.
