Adapted from chapter two of Recovering Biblical Manhood & Womanhood.
Larry Crabb writes:
“In this booklet, John Piper and Wayne Grudem have tackled some of the most important questions that need to be asked about manhood and womanhood and they have done so with clarity, balance, and a thoughtfully firm dependence on biblical data.”
John Piper says:
“This is the booklet I return to most often in dealing with the knotty issues of manhood and womanhood in ministry.”
“The issue we face in this booklet is how men and women should relate to each other according to the Bible.”
At the core of this topic lies the fundamental issue of biblical authority. If we deny biblical teaching about manhood and womanhood, the possibility of a definitive interpretation is lost. If we can get egalitarianism from the Bible, then we can read anything into it. Piper and Grudem's Book dispels the confusion and points us back to biblical fidelity.
