    I re read this book recently JM shows how our God ordained roles as men and women are better for us and wider society Also reflected in the Church That we are spiritually equal but have been given different skills and abilities to allow us to function in different roles that compliment each other in the service of God To usurp these God given roles destroys society as evidenced today.Recommended.Check out my John MacArthur shelf I re read this book recently JM shows how our God ordained roles as men and women are better for us and wider society Also reflected in the Church That we are spiritually equal but have been given different skills and abilities to allow us to function in different roles that compliment each other in the service of God To usurp these God given roles destroys society as evidenced today.Recommended.Check out my John MacArthur shelf

    It s no shocker that I disagree with 90% of what this book lays out If I was a complementarian, I m sure I would have loved the book But I am not I found the mischaracterization of feminists, particularly evangelical Christian feminists, highly offensive and inaccurate It is interesting to me that by the end of the book, one of the chief reasons for living in a complementarian model is to be a witness to the world This does not seem to be the case, as the world recoils in horror at the ab It s no shocker that I disagree with 90% of what this book lays out If I was a complementarian, I m sure I would have loved the book But I am not I found the mischaracterization of feminists, particularly evangelical Christian feminists, highly offensive and inaccurate It is interesting to me that by the end of the book, one of the chief reasons for living in a complementarian model is to be a witness to the world This does not seem to be the case, as the world recoils in horror at the abuse of women within complementarian churches and marriages Granted the book was written in 1994, but there was no mention of the abuse women have experienced The closest we get to the mention of abuse is when MacArthur warns of the sexual harassment that occurs in workplaces, attempting to show couples that the best place for women is in the home since the workplace is such a threat to their safety and purity I also was quite frustrated with MacArthur s interpretation of Genesis 1 3 and of course how he understands ezer kenegdo, usually translates as helper I will not get into my own interpretation of those chapters, but I will leave it at MacArthur does a lot of calling his opinion Truth I was surprised by the little amount of references he used in the sections of biblical interpretation, and he seemed to rely on 5 commentaries for certain passages.Are there any positives I braced myself for the section on singleness, expecting MacArthur to say that single women are under the headship of their fathers and thus need to submit to them There was none of that, and I was pleasantly surprised by the graciousness towards singles I did disagree with the terminology of the gift of singleness and how it was applied to singles content with their singleness But MacArthur highlighted singleness in a positive light, and I appreciated that Secondly, I felt that MacArthur s explanation of Christlike character was pretty good, though I disagree with him on the sexes being called to grow into different character traits In my opinion, the Christlikeness that he would say men are called to I would say women also are called to model And the traits that Paul presents for women, I would say men too should exhibit There are other details that I could write about that disturbed me, but this review gives the gist of it 2 stars, would not recommend, unless one is attempting to understand complementarians

    Un libro muy interesante donde el autor expresa de manera exegetica los Roles tanto del hombre como de la mujer, apuntando a la importancia del cumplimiento de tales roles, de modo que tanto el hombre como la mujer puedan Glorificar a Dios de la manera que El nos llam a Glorificarle, dentro los Roles que nos pertenecen.
