New Book Title!

by

Check out the newest book from one of the editors of the Divine Feminine Version (DFV) of the New Testament:

“Because of the Angels”: Head Coverings and Women in 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 and 14:34,35 by Mark Mattison is now available as a trade paperback and as a Kindle e-book.

From the book jacket:

Really?

Did Paul really write that “women … aren’t allowed to speak” in church? Did he really think that women should cover their heads in church because “the head of the woman is man,” and “because of the angels” — whatever that’s supposed to mean?

Or is it possible that these verses were only later added to Paul’s letter to the Corinthians to make it look like he thought that?

What if these weren’t Paul’s own beliefs, but those of some rivals among the Corinthians who thought that men are superior to women? Could Paul actually have been arguing against those beliefs?

That puzzling little phrase “because of the angels” may provide an important key to unlocking these questions.
