The world needs Christians to speak out about Scripture's teaching on the matters of sex and gender. That means we need to make sure we have it right ourselves. Have we borrowed cultural beliefs from other times and societies? Have we overcorrected and added to God's Word? Is there a better way than the competing rules and guidelines we see in the church today?
Rachel Green Miller argues that what the Bible teaches about women, men, and gender is both simpler and more difficult than we're often told. Although modern discussions have focused on authority and submission, there is much more to the biblical picture. Examining common beliefs in the light of Scripture, she draws out important biblical themes that will strengthen our relationship as co-laborers in the kingdom of God and for the good of this world.
