William J. Webb

William J. Webb

William J. Webb is a theologian, ordained Baptist minister and professor of New Testament at Heritage Seminary, Ontario. He is notable for developing the "redemptive movement hermeneutic", which has been described by Baptist theologian Wayne Grudem as the "most sophisticated" Christian egalitarian hermeneutic that has ever been published. [Wayne Grudem, [http://www.efbt100.com/ "Evaneglical Feminism and Biblical Truth"] (2004)] . He is author of "Slaves, women & homosexuals : exploring the hermeneutics of cultural analysis" (2001), which argues for full role equality of men and women in the church and family while concluding that homosexuality is not a biblically sanctioned lifestyle.

He is also the author of "Returning home: new covenant and second exodus as the context for 2 Corinthians 6.14-7.1" Sheffield : JSOT Press, 1993, held in several hundred university libraries.
