one of the strangest experiences I ever had. By Thriftbooks. com User, August 10, 2005. Reading this book was one of the STRANGEST experiences I have ever had as a born again Christian evangelical. I started out reading this book being a man who was taught to believe in benign patriarchy, breaking ties and such. I tossed out easily 2/3 of what the book said as not making much sense, at least to me where I was at at the time.

The argument in the 21 century church about keeping a woman in her (lesser) place is much like the pro-slavery argument in the church of 1850. The pro-slavery forces had seemingly irrefutable scriptural "proof texts"on which to base their claim. The argument was eventually settled when people began to look at the entire context of the Bible, and view those isolated "proof texts" through that greater lens. For all intents and purposes, Christians no longer seriously argue in favor of putting human beings in slavery. It's a dead issue.

This book takes the same approach with the question of a woman's place in the church and the home. Bilezikian begins with the Bible as a simple outline: Creation- Fall- Redemption. He then begins tracing the history of mankind in Genesis 1-3, building an air-tight case that men and women were equal prior to the fall, with neither one in authority over the other. The fall introduced male rule over women, not as a punishment, but as an effect. And he effectively makes the case that redemption restores God's original will and order.

From this solid foundation, every other scriptural reference relating to the women's issue is examined and discussed. By the time the patriarchal "proof texts" are covered, they can be understood through the lens of the overarching themes of the greater Biblical context, rendering them powerless to keep women in bondage as second class Christians. Bilezikian makes great sense of all of it.

The extensive scripture index gives reference to 20 Old Testament books, and all books from the New Testament except 2 John, 3 John, and Jude. And the book ends with a summary section, and a question and answer session.

It is thorough, filled with scripture, and an excellent teaching tool and reference.

It a good book full of deep biblical insights

The author gives an extremely exegetical and comprehensive view of the scriptures that pertain to the gender issues that the postmodern church faces particularly in the area of leadership and family. His viewpoint is egalitarian with the idea of leadership based on giftedness, not gender. He discusses the interpretations of scriptures surrounding the gender issues in an irenic manner. He is one of the seminal writers who have helped to bring a growing unity to the Body of Christ in these issues.

This gives a excellent overview on the roles men and women play in society. It explains misunderstood passages of scripture and places then in proper light historically. My one regret is that I purchased the kindle version, It is harder to share that way.

It's an excellent book. The author did an excellent job of explaining a topic long misunderstood and abused by so many. It answered many quesrions I've had for so many years. The traditional view of " women should not teach men" made no sense to me because God has been using me to teach men his Word for years! Now I know why that view has been taught for so long. This book confirmed other truths I've noticed in the bible. I wish this book was required reading in Seminaries. The truth about this topic can only strengthen the body of Christ.

This is the first book I read in which the author deals with what the hard passages on women in the Bible really say in the original Greek. In addition, he deals with the cultural context surrounding the hard passages. With that background he brings meaning to these passages that really make sense.
This book has some very good content. That said, it is not well put together and a number of the arguments are not well made. My opinion is that it is too much trouble to sort through the book for what you get out of it. Again, some great content, but its not written well enough to bother with.
