Wayne Grudem critically assesses the writings of evangelical feminism, and asserts that they effectively undermine the authority of Scripture, leading toward theological liberalism and a distortion of God's identity. Grudem presents a stark either-or choice between feminist values and biblical truth. 128 pages, from Good News.
By critically examining the writings of egalitarians, Grudem shows that, while egalitarian leaders claim to be subject to Scripture in their thinking, what is increasingly evident in their actual scholarship and practice is an effective rejection of the authority of Scripture. ^Egalitarianism is heading toward an Adam who is neither male nor female, a Jesus whose manhood is not important, and a God who is both Father and Mother, and then maybe only Mother. The common denominator in all of this is a persistent undermining of the authority of Scripture in our lives. Grudem's conclusion is that we must choose either evangelical feminism or biblical truth. We can't have it both ways ^"Biblical authority is at stake in the debate between complementarianism and egalitarianism--because if you can get egalitarianism from the Bible, you can get anything from the Bible. The weight of Grudem's cumulative argument is considerable, and cannot easily be dismissed." J. Ligon Duncan III Senior Mi
