Does God Really Prefer Men is an an excellent book. It addresses the gender equality question with dignity and truth. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in what the bible has to say about the relationship between men and women as well as women in the church.
I am so thankful for this book! I know that this is a subject of some controversy right now - and that the devil has "muddied the water", so to speak, with homosexual marriage and even homosexuality among the clergy right now, both of which are an abomination. But for me, the bottom line is this: Is there a different Jesus in women from the One in men? Godly men are quick to give Jesus the glory for any good work they've done, "Oh, it's not me, it's Jesus in me that makes it all possible!" And we all appreciate their sincerity, but is there a different Jesus in women? Another, weaker version that fills the female? Of course not! The same Glorious One fills and uses women just like He does men. If it were not so, then flesh would get the glory, would it not? And God has distinctly said that He chose the foolish, base and weak things of this world so that no flesh could glory in His presence! Praise God, after 35 years of "traditional" Christian marriage, my husband and I are now free!
I highly recommend this book! It's informative, has plenty of contemporary examples, and is even funny in places, but the most important thing to me is how scripturally sound it is. The authors take scriptures that have been used for decades to keep women in bondage and plainly demonstrate that this was not the will of God at all. One great example was showing how Christians just a few hundred years ago used scripture to justify slavery and segregation, much like some Christians today use scripture to keep women in "their place." I feel that this book is upfront and honest, but not angry. It may ruffle a few feathers, but isn't that what Jesus did?!
