I have a nice Egalitarian Bible and a New Living Translation Bible, but I was wondering if anyone knows of one that is more useful for guiding me in the word of God without regard to gender and patriarchal doctrine? I am not a total feminist who doesn't respect men or male leaders in the church, but I want to learn more about what the women in the bible did. I have Googled "Women in the Bible" and found several interesting sites, and now I wish to find a Bible translation that is "open-minded" and more informative about women and how they helped the early church continue after Jesus' crucifixion. Can anyone recommend another good gender-inclusive Bible ?
