Favorite book find of the year!
This is my favorite book find of the year. As Walter Martin said (founder of the Christian Research Institute) in his sermon "The Cult of Liberalism" the Christians in the pews are defenseless. If they say something against another movement within Christianity that goes against the correct exegesis of Scripture, they are labeled divisive, unloving, and bigoted.
Well, so be it when you care about the Bible and the reputation of the truth. The author, Wayne Grudem, has presented to us answers to feminist claims, based on what the Bible says with the correct exegesis of the Scripture. It is an excellent work.
And by the way, every thinking Christian who is a member of Christians for Biblical Equality should read the documentation presented in this book about the outrage of CBE calling God "Mother", and how that blasphemy is promoted on their web site. I was especially revited to that bit of information.
Excellent research! I will be buying many copies to give away to others.
Such a pity...
That Grudem now has all of this time to devote to churning out such disgusting and mysogonistic materiel. once again, he spews his hatred of women in this "easy to access" unscholarly work that somehow is accepted as academic. what a joke.
In Grudems view, Jesus is no longer One or the same with the Father. He is ontologically subordinate, just as all women are to all men at all times. right. that makes sense. that darn Condalezza Rice, messing up that theory of women lacking leadership abilities from the getgo. And shoot, that the Bible doesn't say that the gifts come in pink and blue? I guess he missed that one too.
I am a lay person and find Grudems scholarship pathetic to say the least and extremely sexist at its best. I feel very sorry for the previous poster who has bought Grudems "scholarly" analysis and feels she just always subordinate herself to a man because of her innate being. I also am SORELY disappointed at Randy Alcorns review. I thought Randy had a bit more brains than to believe this stuff. but then, now that I think about it, I can definitely see shades of his mysogony in his work as well...too bad really.
Obliterates Flimsy Egalitarian Hermeneutics
As a woman in ministry, I greatly appreciate this book. There are many evangelicals today who claim to take a "fresh new look" at the Scriptures, when in reality they are just redefining particular Greek and Hebrew words in order to fit their particular bent regarding women in ministry.
Every man and woman in ministry, whether lay or full-time, needs to get this book and read it! It is accessible, although not a quick read. It would be good to read through a chapter at a time, and really get a grasp on each chapter. Grudem's understanding of the issue of evangelical feminism is thorough and insightful. Chapter 14 is an excellent summary of how this issue is affecting churches today, and is actually comforting to those of you who may be in the middle of dealing with a push towards egalitarian thinking in your church or ministry leadership.
Don't let the other negative reviews fool you. Grudem does not have a narrow view of women in the church. Nor are his views inconsistent or illogical. These other reviewers obviously have a bone to pick with Grudem and his years of scholarly work that basically obliterate the flimsy hermeneutics that prop up egalitarianism.
