Introducing Eikon 6.1 (Spring 2024)

June 18, 2024

We are grateful to release the Spring 2024 issue of Eikon (6.1), which seeks to address a number of current conversations spanning a wide denominational breadth. In this issue, various authors respond to a recent Christianity Today magazine discussing the topic of women in ministry, examine feminism as an ideological and philosophical movement, and lend their voices to assess the state of complementarianism within their denomination. You will also notice a number of book reviews to get you caught up on the world of biblical anthropology and more.

As the world around us gives way to the erosion of God’s design for men and women, we stand steadfast on God’s revelation. “Anchored by the Word,” says Editor-in-Chief Colin J. Smothers, “we will trim our sails to the Spirit of God and not the spirit of this world, all to the glory of God our Father, all along the way using ‘exclusively masculine’ language for God. Some things never change.”

If you would like a print copy of Eikon, you can subscribe to receive each Spring and Fall issue. Digital copies (pdf) of the print edition are also available for free. Links to each essay in blog format are provided below in the Table of Contents.
