Deviating from the general tendency to seek answers to the issue of women's submission from creation accounts, this book focuses on Philippians 2: 6-11 as the primary text and reason for embracing submission as the defining characteristic of a Christian community. The argument for submission is thus based on soteriology and ethics of the cross rather than creation. Thus, submission is an integral notion not only for women but all Christians. This book shows that the three notions of submission, equality and authority are not as neatly compartmentalized as many assume.


Chapter 1: Philippians 2:5-11; Chapter 2: Exegesis of Philippians 3; Chapter 3: Mimesis and Power; Chapter 4: Submission in Philippians; Chapter 5: Feminist Theology; Conclusion.
