Bible-Carrying Christians

Oxford University Press

This book uses data drawn from fieldwork to check the accuracy of one of the stories that scholars often tell about Bible‐carrying Christian churches. According to that story, such churches naturalize asymmetrical power relations. They teach people that it is natural for Christians to defer to the desires of corporations and nation‐states; for lay people to defer to ministers; for homosexuals to defer to heterosexuals; and for women to defer to men.

Keywords:   asymmetrical, corporations, heterosexuals, men, ministers, nation‐states, naturalize, power relations
