With: Lucy Peppiatt
In this WTCLive episode: Matt Lynch interviews Lucy Peppiatt on her groundbreaking new book, ‘Women and Worship at Corinth: Paul’s Rhetorical Arguments in 1 Corinthians’ (Wipf & Stock, 2015). In this book, Lucy outlines an argument for reading key texts in 1 Cor 11 and 14 as supportive of the full participation of women in the life of the worshipping Church. She suggests that in 1 Corinthians Paul quotes and then refutes the misguided views of his opponents.
Lucy has bachelor’s degrees in both English and Theology. She completed her MA in Systematic Theology at King’s College, London, and her PhD through the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand. Lucy’s research interests are Christ and the Spirit, Charismatic theology, discipleship, and 1 Corinthians. She and her husband, Nick Crawley, lead Crossnet Anglican Church in Bristol.
