Format: Paperback
When I purchased this ~300 page book, I did not realize that it was a condensation and slight updating of a much larger work by the same author, titled: "Evangelical Feminism and Biblical Truth: An Analysis of More Than 100 Disputed Questions." This book is reduced to about 40 key questions, and it covered most if not all the main arguments that I have heard put forward. Even at 300 pages, this book is really not very intimidating, and the format of the book is one of its most useful features. It can easily be used as a reference book and read selectively, as most of the topics are divided up into short chapters ranging from a couple of pages to ten or fifteen.

The real strength of the book in my opinion is how charitably Grudem presents the case for the complementarian view, and yet remains firmly Biblical. The opening chapters on the Biblical view of manhood and womanhood as created by God and in the church are an excellent positive statement of God's design and purpose. The egalitarian or "evangelical feminist" position presents male and female as being not merely as equal, but as virtually interchangeable in their roles and purposes in the family and church. However, the complementarian view shows that male and female were equally made in the image of God, and also have unique roles and purposes in the family and church. The complementarian view does not see male and female as interchangeable, but as two working parts crafted carefully by God to "complement" one another by each supplying unique abilities and responsibilities to the opposite sex.

The crux of the argument is whether it is the egalitarian or complementarian view that more faithfully represents the Scriptures.

Format: Paperback
Wayne Grudem is one of the leading voices in today's comlementarian movement. In his own words, this book "is a condensation of my 856-page comprehensive study, Evangelical Feminism and biblical Truth: An Analysis of MoreThan 100 Disputed Questions." The present book is written for those who already hold to a traditional view of women being subservient to men's leadership. As the title suggests, it was written to give answers for common egalitarian teachings.
The author's basic argument is to read everything through the lense of his interpretation of 2 Timothy 2:12, "I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet." Grudem interprets this to mean that women should not "teach the Bible or have governing authority over the assembled church." This dual prohibition of women not teaching men in the church and not having governing authority is repeated often in many contexts throughout the book.

It was refreshing to read the Grudem believes women can, and should, have much more freedom than they currently experience in most conservative churches. However, because of his understanding of 1 Tim. 2:12, he draws a hard line prohibiting women from holding any position whereby they might have authority over men. He believes that women can teach men scripture and theology under certain conditions. However, he would oppose women teaching a mixed adult Bible class at church and would certianly disaprove of a woman preaching in a regular church service.

He has struggled with the difficulties of where to draw the line and admits that complementarian scholars and churches draw the line at different places. It was this confusion over line drawing that caused me to begin to examine the claims of egalitarianism. Grudem does as good a job as he can holding his position, but in the end I found his arguments unconvincing.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
POWERFUL REBUTTAL OF THE EGALITIARIAN FEMINIST BELIEFS AND PRACTICES (IN HOMES AND CHURCHES TODAY), USING GOOD SOLID THEOLOGY, INTERPRETATIVE PRINCIPLES AND OF COURSE, SCRIPTURE IN THEIR CONTEXT. IF YOU WOULD LIKE THE FULL BLOWN 850 PAGE VERSION SEE "EVANGELICAL FEMINISM AND BIBLICAL TRUTH" BY THE SAME AUTHOR. JUST AS EYE-OPENING IS THE BOOK "RECOVERING BIBLICAL MANHOOD AND WOMANHOOD", GENERAL EDITOR WAYNE GRUDEM, BUT HAS OVER 20 CONTRIBUTING AUTHORS AND SCHOLARS ADDRESSING VARIOUS ISSUES. AFTER READING THIS BOOK ITSELF, YOU WILL KNOW WHY MANY CHURCHES AS WELL AS HOMES ARE SLOWLY BEING DESTROYED.

Definitely recommending this book to others. I have been challenged in learning my role as a godly woman. This book has helped lay out the scriptural foundations for the roles women have in the church, which has been a great help. Looking forward to reading Grudem's other book on women in the church.
