Is patriarchy God's blueprint for how all societies must function? If so, have Elamites in the ancient Near East, who practised matrilineal customs during the time their neighbours practised patriarchal and patrilineal customs, violated God's rule? Do Khasi, Jaintia and Garo peoples in North East India and the Uduks in the southern Blue Nile region of Sudan violate God's rule by practising different matrilineal customs? Based on the study of primogeniture in the Old Testament, this book claims that these matrilineal societies have not violated God's rule.
