    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Impressive

    I was very impressed by this small booklet. Piper goes through this controversial issue and lays down a solid framework for understanding Biblical manhood and womenhood.

    He avoids some of the extremes that we find in our society (ie. outright feminism or outright male domination and abuse) and gives some great practical advise on the fundamental differences between the two sexes.

    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    Doesn't miss the point of the Fall

    1 Corinthians 11:7

    "For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man."

    This verse says nothing about the Fall. The woman was created for man, not equally for God. Paul gets it. Piper pretty much gets it.

    1 Timothy 2:12-14

    "12 But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. 13 For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. 14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression."

    The curse of the Fall was in addition to the obvious hierarchy established through the order of creation: man then woman. Paul gets it. Piper pretty much gets it.

    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Great Biblically based review of Truth

    Piper manages to minimally flesh out the roles described in the Bible for man and woman, while remaining sensitive to the common "modern feminist" views without tiptoeing around the faults in that line of thought. Overall, a great summary of insightful redaction of scripture. Now I want to get the more complete book that Piper edited on this same subject.
