Helpful overview
4 stars By Hoa, May 04 2017
A book written from a complementarian perspective, this lays out the vision and application of biblical complementarity of the genders. Written for a popular audience, it is engaging and easy to read, though at times the reader wishes there was more biblical exegesis shown. Helpful and stimulating.
