Publisher's Summary

A biblical primer on men and women in the church

There is much at stake in God making humanity male and female. Created for one another yet distinct from each other, a man and a woman are not interchangeable - they are designed to function according to a divine fittedness. But when this design is misunderstood, ignored, or abused, there are dire consequences.

Men and women - in marriage especially, but in the rest of life as well - complement one another. And this biblical truth has enduring, cosmic significance. From start to finish, the biblical storyline - and the design of creation itself - depends upon the distinction between male and female. Men and Women in the Church is about the divinely designed complementarity of men and women as it applies to life in general and especially ministry in the church. 

Kevin DeYoung (PhD, University of Leicester) is the senior pastor at Christ Covenant Church in Matthews, North Carolina, and assistant professor of systematic theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte. He serves as board chairman of the Gospel Coalition and blogs at DeYoung, Restless, and Reformed. He is the author of several books, including Just Do Something, Crazy Busy, and The Biggest Story.

Thoughtful, gentle and inspiring!

Looking for a shorter book on the shape of Christian marriage from a complementarian perspective? Look no further! It's not going to parse every relevant verse in Greek but it will do a really good job of providing a positive case for the beautiful picture of marriage and overview of the relevant passages.
If you're interested in genuinely hearing the case for complementarian views, I heartily recommend you check it out.
