About the Author
One of the most significant changes in human history has occurred during the past forty years—the gender revolution. Like the rest of society, Christianity has been permanently affected by this change. According to a leading Time magazine article entitled The Second Reformation, religious feminists "believe they are caught up in one of Christendom's great and historic transformations." In reality, the gender transformation taking place within the worldwide Christian community is not a sign of a "second reformation" (the first being Martin Luther's back-to-the-Bible, sixteenth-century reformation) but of a radical departure from biblical, apostolic Christianity. Among Bible-believing Christians, the gender revolution has spawned intense, emotional controversy over what the Bible says about the roles of men and women. There are two major viewpoints in this debate, the evangelical feminist view and the complementarian view, or the non-feminist view. Men and Women: Equal Yet Different states and defends the complementarian viewpoint. Written in outline form, the book presents biblical evidence that Jesus Christ taught that men and women are equal yet different and introduces the key terms, arguments, and most recent research related to the complementarian position. It also provides an easy-to-read summary of all the key Scripture passages commonly used in the gender debate. The book is written for people who are unfamiliar with biblical passages on gender and probably will not read a lengthy technical book on the subject.
This is a great book that helps us to see and appreciate the difference between man and woman. God created us equal yet different. Though equal, we have been assigned different roles. Today much of the Church gives in to pressure from society when it comes to this subject. Alex brings out the importance of both the man's and the woman's role although they are different. My wife and I both have enjoyed this book very much. Give it a try. There are not many personal opinions here, only what the Bible says. God made both sexes and knows very well what He created them for. Both sexes have a misconception of what they are and of why they were created different. Thoughout the years most people had a totally wrong view of the male and female position. I'm glad the Lord has called Alex Strauch to write a book on this subject. This book is very helpful. Read it!
