Recovering Biblical Manhood and WomanhoodPurchase this book
(co-edited with John Piper)
(566 pages. This book contains 27 essays by 22 different authors on the key issues regarding biblical manhood and womanhood. It won the “Book of the Year” award from Christianity Today magazine in 1992. In the modern controversies over this topic, this is the book that first defined and defended in detail the “complementarian” position, which says that men and women are equal in value but different in their roles in marriage and the church. For over 20 years this book has remained the standard scholarly work explaining the complementarian position.)
A controversy of major proportions has spread through the church. Recent generations bear witness to the rise of “evangelical feminism”–a movement that has had a profound impact on all of life,challenging some of our basic Christian beliefs.
In this new edition of an influential and award-winning best-seller, more than twenty men and women have committed their talents to produce the most thorough response yet to this modern movement. Combining systematic argumentation with popular application, this volume deals with all of the main passages of Scripture brought forward in this controversy regarding gender-based role differences.
Anyone concerned with the fundamental question of the proper relationship between men and women in home, church, and society will want to read this book. New preface included.
