As the issue of complementarianism vs. egalitarianism still rages in the church, the question of gender roles in the church and family rages on… If you are looking for a comprehensive case for complementarianism (the traditional view, Biblical view), look no further. John Piper and Wayne Grudem’s groundbreaking book Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is available as a free pdf download through DesiringGod.
Here’s the book description:
A controversy of major proportions has spread through the church. Recent generations bear witness to the rise of “evangelical feminism”-a movement that has had a profound impact on all of life, challenging some of our basic Christian beliefs.
In this new edition of an influential and award-winning best-seller, more than twenty men and women have committed their talents to produce the most thorough response yet to this modern movement. Combining systematic argumentation with popular application, this volume deals with all of the main passages of Scripture brought forward in this controversy regarding gender-based role differences.
Anyone concerned with the fundamental question of the proper relationship between men and women in home, church, and society will want to read this book. New preface included.
