As one who is evidently committed to the feminist agenda, Jacobs conflates subordination with essential inferiority, which is logically inconsistent with her assertion regarding power or authority. Accordingly, as I read this work within the biblical framework to which I am committed, I found it to be fraught with defective logic, meandering, tedious, repetitious, confused, and only slightly edifying.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0801027063, Paperback)

Gender, Power, and Persuasion peels away centuries-old misconceptions about biblical narratives that have been used to perpetuate gender roles, reinforce biases, and wield power. Probing the dynamics between God and humans and between the genders in the book of Genesis, this thoughtful work provides a new understanding of relational and functional types of power and the strategies of persuasion. Helpful tables and the inclusion of nuances in the Hebrew language further clarify the complex interrelationships underlying key communications and actions. Mignon R. Jacobs's philosophical approach raises pertinent questions and suggests conclusions that sometimes surprise and always intrigue. This book will stimulate the scholar, inform the church leader, and deepen the knowledge of the serious Christian reader.
