Carrie A. Miles holds a doctorate in social and
organization psychology. She is a senior research fellow at the Consortium for
the Economic Study of Religion and is the author of The Redemption of Love:
Rescuing Marriage and Sexuality from the Economics of a Fallen World.
Carrie grew up in the Mormon Church. Although her personal
Christian involvement is now in the wider arena of evangelical Christianity, she
maintains her contacts within LDS intellectual circles in order to better spread
the Good News of equality in Christ. Dialogue, the journal that published this
article, is not a publication of the LDS Church. Its readers tend to be those
who question their own place within Mormonism
Carrie is married to Laurence R. Iannaccone who holds a
doctorate in economics and is a professor at George Mason University. They have
both studied the role of gender in the Christian church for over thirty years.
They have two children.
Patriarchy or Gender Equality gives a concise
summary of Miles' work on Ephesians 5 and 6.
