Product Description

Product Description

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.


A response to evangelical feminism. Implications for family, society and church life.

4.0 out of 5 stars A forgotten topic, well discussed 27 Feb 2003
This is a very well structured, well thought out and well collected selection of essays on a topic of great importance to todays church. Piper and Grudem, in my opinion, take a highly biblical standpoint, and the quality of their own thinking and writing as well as the other contributors in inspiring without being manipulative. You are given plenty of opportunity to form your own opinions from the evidence laid before you - something which I find truly helpful in this sort of book.
Clearly it is written from a particular standpoint, but even if you don't share this with the authors, it commands your attention and thought very well indeed.

Having read this weighty tome, as well as a number of egalitarian responses to the book, I have yet to hear any convincing arguments against the complimentarian view. With the greatest of respect to the notable biblical scholar who hold to the egalitarian view, some of the exegesis presented is pretty flaky. If you are arguing to overturn what has been the orthodox understanding of the roles of men and women in the home and church for the best part of 1900 years, the arguments need to be convincing beyond all doubt to be taken seriously by those who hold the bible to be the inerrant Word of God. I am yet to be convinced, but find the arguments for complimentarianism overwhelming. When doing exegesis, we must be careful not to bring our own 21st century values and ideas to the biblical text, rather let the text speak for itself. It is then down to hermeneutics how we then interpret that, but lets not pretend that the bible is saying something that it clearly isn't.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very helpful book 13 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you want to look into the issue of the roles of men and women in the church - according to biblical principles, this book will be very helpful. I thought it might be too intellectual for me, but have found it very readable.

The first year of marriage can really be a time a tears. It was for us. My wife struggled especially with her identity and role--what does it mean to be a good wife? We came across lots of pragmatic approaches, but we wanted solidity. We wanted real answers--not just the next 10-step approach. We wanted to understand our roles clearly, with no confusion, that we might begin to function truly as a God-honouring family.

Among other books, at first we only read Recovering Biblical Manhood & Womanhood's first chapter, where John Piper defines and illustrates the pleasing significance of a man's and woman's roles. At the time that was enough for us. For us it cleared up everything. To this day it's still left its desired impression on our marriage. The foundations laid in that chapter especially are so understandable. Really you just turn to each other, as husband and wife, and build up from there. It's beautiful.

But over time the rest of the book has become my primary resource for understanding more deeply what I believe and why, as well as help to persuade others of the truth and goodness of our complementary roles. And I believe the authors in this book listen closely and respond profoundly to the other-sides, the feminist and egalitarian arguments, which we hear and see in simple-form everyday on the streets, TV, movies and families around the West, with piercing, unpretentious wisdom.

What we have here is a truly professional and compelling look into the Bible on the roles of men and women. I believe it satisfies our starved questions and, by God's grace through prayer, will lead your family in imaging our great Saviour Jesus Christ and His beautiful bride.
