What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"In Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, twenty-two men and women commit their talents to produce the most thorough response yet to evangelical feminism. All who are concerned with the fundamental question of the proper relationship between men and women in home, church, and society will want to read this important book."
Association of Theological BooksellersAssociation of Theological Booksellers

"The best book in print today on this subject. A very important contribution in an age that needs to know."
Christian Literature WorldChristian Literature World

"Piper and Grudem have achieved a commendable breadth of subject area supported by clear, specific, and precise treatment-all of which consistently make the case for 'biblically balanced male leadership' in home, church, and society."
Michael G. Maudlin, Discipleship Journal

"Without a doubt this is the most impressive and comprehensive statement of a conservative evangelical understanding of these issues to be published to date. No one seriously involved in seeking a responsible Christian engagement with such concerns can afford to ignore this magisterial undertaking."
Timothy George, Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School; General Editor, Reformation Commentary on Scripture

"A trumpet-call to the church at large to wake up to the issue. Yet for a book that pulls no punches, it remains reasoned and courteous. It also sets an excellent model in the principles of biblical debate."
Graham Keith, Banner of Truth Trust

"This significant contribution to the ongoing debates over roles and liberties consciously seeks to be governed by Scripture rather than by contemporary culture. Headship by men is a responsibility from God, not a privilege for their own advantage. Much of the confusion of our day is laid at the feet of men who have failed in their role by being either domineering or domesticated. Here is strong medicine for healthy balance with full respect for women and men in their intended roles."
William Smallman, The Baptist Bulletin

Some of the best conservative evangelical theologians write the most comprehensive defense of the biblical view of complementarianism. Some of the contributors are John Piper, Wayne Grudem, Thomas R. Schreiner, D. A. Carson, George W. Knight III, Douglas Moo, and H. Wayne House. This is a book that can be accessed over and over to address the main issues in this debate. I cannot overstate the importance of this work on this very important issue.
