Jo-Ann Badley writes about how even Mary, pregnant with God by the Holy Spirit, still needs a man to get the recognition she deserves from Protestants.
Jo-Ann Badley is dean of theology at Ambrose University in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She completed her PhD at the Toronto School of Theology. Currently, she serves on the Canadian Evangelical-Roman Catholic Dialogue and is finishing a Protestant theology of Mary.
Jo-Ann Badley and Stephanie Neill propose that the current interest in food in North American culture redresses cultural patterns of detachment in ways consonant with New Testament practices of communion, calling us to gratitude and recognition of the relational character of human living.
