Did God create you to enjoy being the man or woman you are? Are men and women exactly the same?
In modern society, and even in the evangelical church, there is much confusion concerning the roles of men and women. Dr. Wayne Grudem speaks about biblical manhood and womanhood in creation and marriage. He expounds the five key issues that need to be addressed in the man/woman controversy. Dr. Grudem begins with the very important point that the Bible teaches men and women are equal in value and dignity. This message offers listeners clarity and joy.
- Thorough and humble
Grudem says a lot in 1:20. This is a must listen to for today's culture.
Grudem goes through verse by verse explaining how egalitarians twist the Scriptures. He also explains the larger effects in our life and in the church.
I thought the beginning was weak because he talks in general without using Bible verses, but then he fully brings out the meaning of many verses. All in an interesting way and with an easy to listen to conversational tone.
- Good short but necessary read.
Both practical and biblical.
Grudem's lecture wonderfully lays out the biblical foundation of the male and female role and it's origin while giving a strong refutation of egalitarianism and "mutual submission."
