posted by Scot McKnight

Marriage as Parable of Permanence 8

posted by Scot McKnight

We are discussing marriage by examining the recent book of John Piper’s called This Momentary Marriage: A Parable of Permanence. What then about this “submissiveness” that is so emphatic in Piper’s complementarian approach to reading the roles of husbands and […]
