Desiring God Ministries and CBMW have just produced a new book celebrating biblical manhood and womanhood. It’s edited by Owen Strachan and Jonathan Parnell, and it’s titled Good: The Joy of Christian Manhood and Womanhood. I’ve got a chapter in it on transgender, which you can read here. John Piper penned a nostalgic forward to the book that takes a look back at just how much has changed among evangelicals since he and Wayne Grudem first edited Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood twenty-six years ago. Grateful for the fruit of that work, Piper concludes with this:
I commend this book to you, and pray that the beauty of the vision, and the courage to speak it, will spread—for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ.
To download Good: The Joy of Christian Manhood and Womanhood, click on the following format options:
- Download ebook as a PDF file.
- Download ebook as an EPUB file formatted for readers like the Nook, Sony Reader, and Apple iBooks (iPad, iPhone, iPod).
- Download ebook as a MOBI file formatted for Kindle applications (this option works well on some mobile devices, and not so well on others).
It is great to see this book and read the wonderful forward by Piper. What I do find interesting is that essentially the Complimentarian argument and viewpoint has remained relative constant throughout this “debate”.
Arguments based on the bible generally do not need to change
Gag… the authors needed to spend some time over at Christians for Biblical Equality.http://www.cbeinternational.org
That’s kind of like suggesting two siblings should get to know each other without realising they grew up in the same house.
There was a smile at the beginning of my comment, Amy. Got lost somewhere between pushing the “post comment” button and turning up under your comment.
