Fabulous, exhaustive resource on the Biblical manhood-womanhood controversy
For those who have read 'Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood,' this is a fabulous and highly recommended upgrade. For those who are new to the gender issues storming through the church, this is essential material. Grudem's treatment of key passages is careful and precise, but the layout and content of the book makes it a fabulous resource for those who want to wade slowly through the whole tome or use it as a reference to quickly find answers to more than 100 major questions and arguments that are now at the forefront of the manhood-womanhood controversy. Speaking as someone who has read about this issue extensively, I can still say that Grudem's new book had questions and answers I either had no answers to before, or didn't even realize were major points of controversy. In addition to this meaty section of questions and answers, Grudem spends many pages giving a practical, easy to follow explanation of the whole Biblical manhood-womanhood debate as well as a foundational explanation of the complementarian and egalitarian perspective. Further, this is all done on the backbone of scripture with solid exegesis and integrity. One final note: while this will be a pleasing and meaty read for the scholarly, this is extremely accessible to the layman.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
