Covering the Web: Sept 15/14

Covering The Web

Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.

  • Headcoverings? Say what?! (A Fruitful Home)
    “Now, I’ve been in church all my life. And I have heard some quick teaching on this subject, mainly just saying that it was a cultural thing that we don’t have to adhere to anymore. End of story. And that was enough for me for the past 33 years. I didn’t want to cover my head anyway. Even though I love the Amish way of life, I don’t want to look like the Amish, you know?”
  • Review | Garlands of Grace (Fresh Modesty)
    “We quickly decided the ‘Cecily’s Classic Lace’ [from Garlands of Grace] was exactly what we were looking for in a headcovering for Kaliste’s wedding…To us, weddings are a worship service.”
  • Can We Have God AND Reject His Word? (Peaceful Wife)
    “I believe with everything that is in me that the Bible is the Word of God, the only source of absolute truth. I am completely heartbroken that anyone might teach that the Bible is meaningless and irrelevant to people today…Here are some of the topics in the New Testament that we have been told are culturally irrelevant today…”
  • Outfit // Almost Here Darling (Calico Sisters)
    Pictures of an outfit worn to church with a head covering. “I wore this darling dress for church services week before last.”

Be An Encouragement: Share Your Testimony

We’d like to invite women (especially those that have recently begun covering) to share your testimony with us here. We’re looking for unique stories to share with our readers to be an encouragement to them. Please don’t feel like you need to be an “expert”, knowing all the ins-and-outs of 1 Corinthians 11. If you’ve committed to practicing this symbol for biblical reasons then you’re qualified 🙂

Hope to hear from many of you soon!

An Interview with David Phillips on “Headcovering Throughout Christian History”

Yesterday we introduced you to a new e-book by David Phillips called “Headcovering Throughout Christian History”. Earlier this week we recorded an interview with David to talk about history and headcovering, which you can watch above. You can buy a copy of his e-book here.

“Headcovering Throughout Christian History” by David Phillips

Headcovering Throughout Christian History

Today I’d like to introduce you to a great new e-book on 1 Corinthians 11. It’s called “Headcovering Throughout Christian History” by David Phillips.

Here’s a snippet from the book description:

“Headcovering Throughout Church History” is an overview of the Church’s response to 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 across the last 2000 years of Christianity. It features the writings of the Early Church, Augustine, Martin Luther, John Bunyan, Charles Spurgeon, and many others. It also documents contemporary theologians & denominations that endorse the Church’s historical stand on this passage of Scripture. Now in Kindle format, this book contains the most comprehensive research currently available on this topic. Carefully referenced quotations allow you to hear from well over 50 theologians, pastors, and other Christian writers throughout Church history.”

David has graciously placed his e-book on sale for only $0.99 now through September 12th. I really hope you will buy a copy as it’s a tremendous resource of historical quotes in a well-organized fashion. To continue to grow this movement, we all need to support one another’s efforts in spreading the word about this message. If we all get behind this book, it will show that there’s a demand for resources on this topic which can open new doors.

Come back tomorrow to learn about the history of head covering. We’ll be posting a video interview we recently conducted with David on this topic.

To purchase “Headcovering Throughout Christian History” please visit this page. You can read this book (or any other Kindle book) on your computer, smartphone or tablet by installing a free Kindle app.
