5.0 out of 5 stars

on 19 August 2010
It is refreshing to see a young evangelical leader not be afraid to tackle the most controversial issues head on. He writes from a complementarian perspective on men and women in the church (and marriage), that according to the scriptures certain teaching/governing roles are restricted to men.

The book is relatively short yet he gives a surprisingly deep look at the difficult verses in the bible about women in ministry. He is very forthright and writes specifically for the layman avoiding much of the technical jargon. It still requires some careful thought though if you are not familiar with this debate.

He devotes a chapter to each of the disputed verses (pertaining to church, not marriage) and also has a chapter on answering common objections and a further one about practical applications. In the appendix is an interesting piece on the historic link between egalitarianism (pro-women's ordination) and homosexual approval as well as a very good piece on husbands loving their wives/wives submitting to their husbands.

Great introductory book for someone just wanting a concise look at this issue from the complementarian perspective, a lot is packed in to a small book.
