Editorial Reviews

Review

"Biblical authority is at stake in the debate between complementarianism and egalitarianism-because if you can get egalitarianism from the Bible, you can get anything from the Bible. The weight of Grudem's cumulative argument is considerable, and cannot easily be dismissed."
J. Ligon Duncan III, Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi

"While authors and scholars sympathetic to egalitarianism may be loath to consider they may in fact be wrong, Grudem pleads with his readers to reconsider their positions."
Michael Easley, Pastor, Fellowship Bible Church, Brentwood, Tennessee

"Wayne Grudem exhibits faithfulness to the biblical revelation and courage in the light of near universal opposition. There is not a more important book to read on the subject than this one."
Paige Patterson, President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

"The entire Body of Christ owes an enormous debt of gratitude to Wayne Grudem for his courage in taking on what has become a Goliath within the camp of modern-day evangelicalism."
Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author; radio host, Revive Our Hearts

"Wayne Grudem takes a vital stand and encourages us to join him. He tackles the issue firmly and fairly and with the clarity we have come to expect."
Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, Ohio

"However fervently we hope that the answer to this book's question is a resounding no, Grudem furnishes evidence that cannot be lightly dismissed."
Robert W. Yarbrough, Professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary

Format: Paperback
This book is a great read! While much of the content has appeared in other places, the simplicity of the style and the power of the logic are compelling. I was reminded again and again of what Luke says about Stephen as he disputed with the Freedmen in the synagogue: "But they could not withstand the wisdom and the Spirit with which he was speaking" (Acts 6:10). Truly, the Lord has raised Wayne Grudem up "for such a time as this."

As a pastor, I especially liked the analogies and breakdowns Grudem sprinkled throughout, which will help laypeople understand confusing feminist arguments. I also liked the way he kept hammering the nail at the end of each chapter: "...another step on the path to liberalism." That refrain gained power as the book proceeded, culiminating in the last chapter. I applaud the decision to name names, and to call out those (like the Kroegers) who have done shoddy and/or misleading work. An interested layperson reading this will "get it." And at 263 pages, it is much less intimidating than his longer works, Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and Evangelical Feminism and Biblical Truth. Sometimes less is more.

Egalitarians will not like this work. They will deny that their works in any way undermine biblical authority. But I would urge them to read this book with humility rather than to bluster over it, and to think what effect their arguments will have upon the generation following after them, who might not share their conservative evangelical upbringing.

Dr. Grudem is to be commended for addressing such a controversial issue in such a clear yet gracious way. Highly recommended for everyone who cares about the health of the evangelical church in America.

Format: Paperback
Wayne Grudem's Evangelical Feminism: A New Path to Liberalism? (Wheaton: Crossway, 2006) is a welcome addition to a plethora of scholarship that has been done in the area of biblical gender studies in recent years. However, this book is quite different than previous work in this area. In Evangelical Feminism, Grudem sounds a clear and explicit warning to his evangelical feminist friends: the presuppositions upon which evangelical feminism are founded necessarily lead to liberalism.

Grudem's approach in proving such a thesis is to show the connections between evangelical feminism and liberalism in the local church in recent decades (Part 1: 23-30); the views of evangelical feminists that undermine the authority of the Bible (Part 2: 31-150); and the views of evangelical feminists that are based upon "untruthful or unsubstantiated claims" (Part 3: 151-220). In the last section of the book, Grudem lays out the direction where evangelical feminism is taking evangelical Christians, which he contends is a slippery slope toward liberalism (Part 4: 221-263). Ultimately at stake in the gender debate, according to Grudem, is Holy Scripture itself (261-263).

The strengths of this book are its ample documentation, both in terms of Scripture references and contemporary scholarship; its accessibility and usefulness for any Christian who is either quite familiar with the current complementarian/patriarchal-egalitarian debate or any believer in Christ who is just coming into contact with the discussion, and who would like to know more; and the tone in which Grudem writes, which is clear and forthright. Grudem does not caricaturize evangelical feminists, but rather deals with the best of their scholarship, showing it to be lacking when viewed up against the biblical text.

Finally a book that is easy to read and concise that clearly outlines the faults of egalitarians. Conservatives everywhere should applaud Grudem for his unapologetic stand on the Bible's ultimate authority and traditional interpretation. Grudem warns us against taking small steps down the path towards liberalism which ultimately could result in out right heresy.

Grudem is not trying to explain what women's roles actually are in the church, but rather he is defending, argument by argument, why evangelical feminism is not only dangerous but incorrect. In a culture that demands equality, our natural inclination is to side with the egalitarians however Grudem clearly shows us from scripture the compromises that must be made in order to draw these conclusions.

All Christians that believe the Bible is true and accurate need to read this book to see how evangelical feminism is distorting the truth of God's work. This is not an issue that we can remain silent about or hope that it will go away. The logical conclusions of this kind of compromise to the text are scary!

Egalitarians that read this book must remember Grudem's statements in the introduction and conclusion of this book:

"I have a number of egalitarian friends who have not moved one inch towards liberalism in the rest of their doctrinal convocations, and who strongly believe and defend the inerrancy of the Bible." (p.20)

"Of course nobody adopts all of the arguments I have listed... but every evangelical feminist author I know of adopts at least some of [them]." (p.262)

Do not take this book as a personal attack on your beliefs, or the beliefs of some scholars you may respect. But rather humbly consider the warnings Grudem makes about where some of these small compromises are leading.
