    My manhood has to be recovered? Once a man always a man I don't have to stress my manhood to any woman She should feel safe and secure around me as I lead by example by being a man of prayer fully devoted to the spiritual life If she see that it will be she who will head over with heels for anything going on in my spiritual life But if I keep reminding the lady about who is head and how much of a head I have she will be pushed away Why put a wedge between the genders? Why not seek unity and intimacy instead of bemoaning my lost manhood that I have to go on an adventure of recovering? Hurray I read the book and I got my manhood back This kind of book stresses the Arab patriarchal mindset that I myself tried to be rid of by converting to Christianity Are we moving forward or going backward? If we are in Christ there is no male or female I say that as an Arab Christian guy who has practiced the new life and want to renew me from within in every aspect This kind of a book is divisive and chauvinistic It breaks my heart that there are even Christians who think along such chauvinistic lines What kind of Christianity is that? I wonder Not my type


  2. Chad Barnes Chad Barnes says:

    The single most thorough work I've seen on biblical manhood and womanhood Arguing from a complementarian perspective Piper and Grudem's work is practical but also a difficult thoroughly exegetical theologically rich read that is not for the faint of heart I would venture to call this the finest work on biblical manhood and womanhood in print outside of the Bible itself but would warn that it's content is undoubtedly on par with that of a seminary courseADDITIONAL NOTE Because Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is written from a complementarian perspective some will inevitably argue that the book is chauvinist Since chauvinism is the belief that one gender is superior to another even a uick read of the book would reveal that the contributors could not be further from chauvinist They soundly suash such an understanding and in fact argue that men and women have eual value as God's image bearers p95 They also argue that men and women have distinct roles Some people insist that affirming role distinctions is inherently chauvinist To do that though one must also argue that Jesus' voluntary submission to His Father not my will but yours be done means that the second member of the Trinity is inferior to the first which has long been rejected as a heresy One must also argue that children are less valuable than parents that employees are less valuable than employers and that ordinary citizens are less valuable than government officials because all of those relationships involve differing roles


  3. Stephen Stephen says:

    While I ultimately disagree with the conclusions of this book it is a well written and argued case for complementarianism The greatest strength of the book is its exegetical work and its breadth including forays in law psychology and biology I found the core biblical argument unconvincing but again well stated I cannot recommend this book as a resource for better understanding the roles of men and women in the church but I do recommend it as the classic statement of the complementarian position which should be engaged by those arguing for evangelical egalitarianism A thought provoking read


  4. Leeann Head Leeann Head says:

    Does not follow Christ's example of sincere servant hearted euality of male female believers Disappointed Phoebe a female deacon is praised by Paul plus other female Christians as active in God's work Recent search for a balanced bible church uncovered one with this motto listed as what they strive foriesubjugating Christian women in all roles even secular vs empowering women to go beyond dangerously lukewarm participation in all areas of life A dismal gag order for over half the church population based on sex not competency

    i couldn't disagree with Piper and Grudem


  6. Mary Mary says:

    I read this volume as part of an individual study with a former student of mine at Temple U She was interested in the evangelical biblical euality movement and included this book on her reading list She also included another anthology by later antagonists Discovering Biblical Euality eds Pierce and GroothuisA few of the chapters in Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood are written by the editor John Piper This was my first encounter with Piper and in the past few years I have become increasingly astonished with how popular Piper is He is joining a long tradition of celebrity preachers I believe that you can even get a feed on your blog now with daily Piper uotesThe rating The two stars are primarily for educational value If I rated this solely based on inspirational usefulness it certainly would have received less than that as I do not agree with many of the position statements I am also uncomfortable with both its exegetical style and the broader evangelical tendency to treat the Bible as the fourth member of the Godhead However this is an historically important piece of literature in the history of white American Protestantism It's especially useful for illustrating clearly the main elements of the culture wars and theological debates that have popped up within the evangelical subculture in the last few decades Reading Piper's anthology with Discovering Biblical Euality makes for some good sport


  7. Hannah Reeves Hannah Reeves says:

    Like many people I read this for research purposes meaning I read most of it but not cover to cover I'll preface by saying that the one star is for the couple of essays in here that make compelling arguments due either to the fact that they rely on scientific studies that are at least 20 years old and have for the most part been altered or debunked since or are simply written by contributors with better debate skills or charisma as much as I disagree with him on multiple issues including this one I'll never deny that John Piper is highly skilled at getting his message across and convincing people it's trueFirst off I deeply fundamentally disagree with everything put forth in this book I'm a passionate egalitarian But I read this text the classic comprehensive work on complementarian theology hoping to uncover stronger and thorough arguments for traditionalist positions than I've found in the Christian blog sphere I'm curious and wanted to give oppositional viewpoints a fair shot and this seemed the place to go But it became progressively clear that I was looking for better arguments than this book could offer I've never seen biblical passages taken out of context in one place in my whole life Some contributors did it worse than others; many essays went the classic route of Ephesians 5 Titus and the various Timothy verses but others tore minute verses out of context with no apparent regard for any kind of biblical scholarship In Dorothy Patterson's chapter on homemaking as the woman's calling she claims that men are biblically mandated to be the sole providers for their families and backs her claim up with Genesis 215 a verse that isn't even remotely connected to the concepts of homemaking and breadwinning Later she pulls out a random verse in Isaiah to engage in some good old fashioned fear mongering It's practically a rule among serious scholars that you can't just grab a piece of Isaiah and use it to support something All in all the prooftexting in this book was unreal Surprisingly something bothered me about the book even than the positions it takes I repeatedly ran into spots in the text where the insulation of the authors from the hard practical truths of life was unbelievably stark They were clearly expressing their opinions from lofty whitewashed towers their hermeneutics ignoring other cultures harder economic situations and the pervasive reality of abuse More than just twisting themselves into philosophical pretzels to maintain ancient and damaging social norms their writing isolated the poor the traumatized and the lost from what they claimed was God's perfect vision for His Kingdom emphasis on the male pronouns This just made it obvious to me that complementarianism is a theology that cannot reconcile itself with reality; it turns a blind eye to the brokenness of the world while upholding the egoism and lust for power that causes that same brokennessThe real moment of truth for me was in John M Frame's chapter on the image of God and how he seemed to have no trouble discussing men's Imago Dei but had to bend over backwards to reconcile complementarian ideals of headship and submission with women's role as image bearers His opinions on pronoun use for God were also some of the most revealing I've ever come across Scripture wants us to think of God as Lord and lordship in scripture always connotes authority Since in the biblical view women are subject to male authority in the home and the church there is some awkwardness in speaking of God in female terms It was one of those moments where you see that the emperor really doesn't have any clothes You've suspected it for a while but watching him strut around completely naked and obviously unaware of it leaves you with no doubts This book I think raises one vital uestion though certainly not the one the contributors wanted it to Is it difficult to connect women to the image of God because the Bible mandates submission to men or have we taught biblical submission because we don't see the image of God in women? This book is a great resource if you're an egalitarian wanting to review the complementarian perspective from a scholarly angle or if you're already a complementarian and you want several different people to jumpstart your fuzzy feelings about being theologically strongarmed into a role that isn't biblical and that maybe you never belonged in However if you are anything other than a strong able bodied virile man with an instinct to lead everything you see or a pretty submissive ride or die virgin whose primary goals in life are having seven children and picking up after the men in your life then this book could be a pretty painful and discouraging read If you finish this book and feel like your personhood has been discredited because you don't fit the mold of biblical manhood or womanhood shuffle over to cbeinternationalorg where you'll find in my opinion a much beautiful complete and realistic view of God's vision for men and women And yes it's the same CBE whose mission statement John Piper and Wayne Grudem tried to tear apart in the final chapter Any theology of gender that can and has left normal God loving people feeling broken and insufficient is one that needs to be confronted and if the reasoning in this text is anything to go by that won't be hard to do


  8. Tori Samar Tori Samar says:

    I can’t help but wonder how many of this book’s critical reviews come from Christians who affirm male headship in the church and in marriage recognize God ordained differences between men and women and believe that men and women have ontological and spiritual euality—all core views espoused by this book the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood CBMW and complementarianism My guess is not very many Yet that’s the strange uncomfortable position I find myself occupying for this review I make no claims of being the most theologically ualified to evaluate this book Nevertheless I believe I have understood its overall thrust and individual arguments well enough to offer what I hope are legitimate affirmations and criticisms Let me begin with the affirmations First the scholarship is admirable I definitely had to be at my best as a reader in order to say about each essay “Yes I understand these arguments” The book’s first section contains thorough exegeticaltheological arguments for male headship in the church and in marriage while still upholding ontological and spiritual euality between the sexes Additionally the discussions of the fallacy of the excluded middle are spot on Egalitarians and feminists often argue as though rejecting their position necessarily means supporting patriarchy misogyny and the like This book exposes the flaws of such thinking Finally in spite of my concerns about overcorrection see below I do believe this book had good reason to respond definitively to evangelical feminism Read Pamela Cochran's Evangelical Feminism A History see also my review of Cochran's book and you will understand the CBMW's alarm and their desire to stem the tide as it were Nevertheless I do still have concerns about this book especially in light of its position as a comprehensive explanation of complementarianism The arguments presented have significant implications for every believer The stakes are high As careful and biblical as this book has sought to be I do not believe it has been careful and biblical enoughOne main issue—John Piper’s definitions of biblical manhood and womanhood in the first essay are foundational to the entire book yet I found myself unable to get on board with them Piper argues that the heart of masculinity and femininity is the intertwined ideas of men being willing to lead provide for and protect women and women being willing to affirm receive and nurture such behavior from men My uestion however is What is Piper’s Scriptural basis for calling this the heart of masculinity and femininity? He leans heavily on NT passages about the marriage relationship to make this argument But is it not just as reasonable to say that the heart of femininity is Proverbs 3110 31 which has far far to say about women than how they ought to relate to men? Or is it not just as reasonable to say that the heart of both masculinity and femininity is Romans 829 conformity to the image of God’s Son? I recognize that Christlikeness in practice sometimes looks the same for men and women and sometimes does not Essentially Piper’s definitions struck me as being about opposing egalitarianism than anything else As a result much meaningful Scripture is left unexplored such as the passages I referenced above And worse Piper’s definitions push him dangerously close at times to saying that all women should be subordinate to all menNow back to the idea of responding to evangelical feminism—I have no issue with the CBMW seeking to respond to a movement it found unbiblical But responding to movements one disagrees with can sometimes lead to real or perceived overcorrection Perhaps I was just an oversensitive reader but I did indeed walk away from this book with the taste of overcorrection in my mouth The book placed heavy emphasis on the differences between men and women and largely ignored their similarities as image bearers—an approach far too unbalanced for my comfort level It was almost as if the contributors were afraid to acknowledge anything that might make them sound egalitarian Why does this lack of balance matter to me? For one thing when we become hyper focused on differences we run the risk of believers in local churches over segregating along gender lines in fellowship and ministry Too much emphasis on differences can also harm the way we approach discipleship and personal spiritual growth I think women may be particularly susceptible to the latter problem Consider the following insight from Hannah Anderson in her book Made for More An Invitation to Live in God’s Image Too often as women we have restricted ourselves to the “pink” parts of the Bible When we identify first and foremost as women we can begin to believe that knowledge of ourselves will come primarily through passages that speak to women’s issues or include heroines like Ruth or Esther But when we do this when we craft our learning and discipleship programs around being “women” we make womanhood the central focus of our pursuit of knowledge instead of Christ Note I am not trying to say by my previous paragraph that masculinity and femininity are not important parts of discipleship and spiritual growth nor am I saying that the local church should never have gender segregated fellowship or ministry I am merely expressing a concern I have about this book's emphases leading to overcorrectionFinally I was astounded that this book made almost no attempt to explore how culture has influenced our perceptions of masculinity and femininity whether for good or for bad Yes biology matters I don’t deny the significance of biology at all But how could a substantive discussion of cultural influences be so glaringly absent? Nature and nurture I’d be lying if I said I don’t post this review with some trepidation but I’m following my conscience and my understanding of Scripture as best I can I hope what I have said is of some profit to those who read it


  9. Paige Paige says:

    No stars if I could give negative 5 stars I would This book breaks my heart for all the Christians searching for guidance and who will be mislead into thinking that this is God's design for men women In this book Piper provides a guide on how to be an abusive and controlling husband and shames both men and women for things neither have any control over such a physical appearance and personality traits There are so many other things I could write about this book but I am too frustrated to find the words This book is heartbreaking and damaging
