Powers and Submissions:Spirituality Philosophy and Gender Sarah Coakley
As the 2022 French Presidential election looms, two candidates emerge as favourites: Marine Le Pen of the Front National, and the charismatic Muhammed Ben Abbes of the growing Muslim Fraternity. Forming a controversial alliance with the political left to block the Front National´s alarming ascendency, Ben Abbes sweeps to power, and overnight the country is transformed. This proves to be the death knell of French secularism, as Islamic law comes into force: women are veiled, polygamy is encouraged and, for our narrator François - misanthropic, middle-aged and alienated - life is set on a new course. Submission is a devastating satire, comic and melancholy by turns, and a profound meditation on faith and meaning in Western society.
Longtime Pastor John Tebay has been aware, in more than a half century of ministry, that churches can become mired in disputes ranging from petty to major. Many times, these controversies have erupted into pastoral dismissals or resignations, the frequent exodus of congregants, and bitter church splits.Pastor Tebay contends that the vast majority of these quarrels are a result of a lack of clarity concerning godly authority. Is the pastor in charge? Is the congregation in charge? Are the elders in charge? Is a combination of all these factions leading the church?In his timely audiobook, The Power of Submission, John Tebay contends that our permissive culture’s resistance to authority has permeated the Church and that God’s clear principle of authority has become muddled, murky, or ignored. When spiritual authority is unclear, the potential for division, strife, confusion, and darkness among God’s people and the world is highly intensified, always lurking and waiting to erupt.But when God is the source of authority and is applied to the Church, the family, and individuals as laid out in the Bible, you will discover how the ´´power of submission” can change lives and change the hearts and minds of those in the Church and in church leadership. 1.
