Seeking Understanding: Women and Justice

“Seeking Understanding: Some Issues in Biblical Interpretation Regarding Women and Justice”

As part of the development of a social statement, the ELCA Women and Justice: One in Christ task force has produced a study utilizing Book of Faith initiative materials to encourage discussions on the topic of women and the Bible. There is a leader’s guide and handout for each of the three sessions along with a background paper written by Erik Heen, professor at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. The study can be used with a variety of classes or groups. It is available for download at the ELCA website.

Congregations are encouraged to contact the task force at  with thoughts and reflections after utilizing the study.
