I had been a fan of Kevin DeYoung in the past and had found some of his writings to be very helpful. However, this book only helped me to realize that he is a very serious sexist. While he claims that gender hierarchy does not imply that men are superior to women, his disdain for women comes out clearly in this book. In addition to not believing that women should be pastors or elders, he does not even believe that women should teach adult Sunday school with men in the class or be guest speakers of sermons in worship. He backs up his views with scripture, and discusses the perspective of the other side and why he considers it inaccurate. However, he clearly interprets scripture to reinforce his already decided view that women must always be below men in both the church and the home. I will never read anything else by this man who uses his knowledge of scripture to promote inequality and discrimination. I would only recommend this book as an example of how morally and spiritually bankrupt the so-called "complementarian" position on gender is.
