How the Old Testament Humanizes Women: Dr. Katie McCoyTheology in the Raw
Dr. Katie McCoy serves as Director of Women’s Ministry at The Southern Baptist Convention, Texas. She holds a PhD in systematic theology and her research focuses on Old Testament laws about women and justice for the vulnerable. Her most recent book is To Be a Woman: The Confusion Over Female Identity and How Christians Can Respond. In this conversation, we look at the startling statement about female captives in war from Deuteronomy 21:10-14 and the seemingly strange laws regarding women who have recently given birth from Leviticus 12:1-4.
