Can She Do What He Can Do Everyday people are considering the roles of men and women in the home and church Evangelical feminists consider these roles interchangeable In this helpful book, Wayne Grudem offers fifty biblical responses to feminists arguments While the Bible teaches that God values men and women equally, their roles in home and church are complementary to each other, not interchangeable Arguing against both feminism on the left and male chauvinism on the right, this to the point handbook is a valuable resource Men and Women Church and Home What are their roles in each Can the lines be crossed Evangelical feminists boldly assert that male and female roles are interchangeable Society reflects the argument But what does the Bible have to say Wayne Grudem offers than forty biblical responses to the most crucial questions on this topic, showing Gods equal value in men and women and why their roles are complementary, not interchangeable This to the point handbook is a valuable resource enabling every Christian to grasp the issues, including What the Bible says about the roles of men and women in marriage Women in the church and in church leadership Theology and the concepts of equality, fairness, and justice Claims that a complementarian view is harmful Praise for Evangelical Feminism and Biblical Truth, the exhaustive volume of this work No one will be able to deny the cumulative strength of the case this author makes J I Packer This is the most thorough, balanced, and biblically accurate treatment of feminism and the Bible I have seen Stu Weber After the Bible, I cannot imagine a useful book for finding reliable help in understanding Gods will for manhood and womanhood in the church and the home John Piper Story Behind the BookI would like to see this book as the final answer to the question of feminism in the church today There has been a lot of controversy and debate in the church on this subject and I have used the Bible exclusively to answer the question of feminism in the church This book must not be portrayed as anti women, or as putting women down in any way This book will seek throughout to elevate and honor women, to regard them as equal in value to men yet with different God given roles This book fairly presents arguments and facts, leading people to conclude for themselves that evangelical feminism is clearly contrary to Scripture Wayne Grudem...

Countering the Claims of Evangelical Feminism: Biblical Responses to the Key Questions Reviews
Even if I don't agree with everything, it's so good to get another side of the story. I just finished a class on contemporary theology where I was not educated but indoctrinated. One-sided indoctrination is bad. Seminaries need to teach a real educated by looking at all sides of an argument, evaluating strengths and weaknesses. This book gives a more orthodox and ancient side to the issues. It is well presented. There are a few weaknesses, where the author does not present an airtight case, but in other areas he does. It is excellent exegesis of a topic we need to rethink.
Grudem is thorough and faithful to Scripture without going into attack mode. Good material here with even-headed tone.
A good read, lots of information.
POWERFUL REBUTTAL OF THE EGALITIARIAN FEMINIST BELIEFS AND PRACTICES (IN HOMES AND CHURCHES TODAY), USING GOOD SOLID THEOLOGY, INTERPRETATIVE PRINCIPLES AND OF COURSE, SCRIPTURE IN THEIR CONTEXT. IF YOU WOULD LIKE THE FULL BLOWN 850 PAGE VERSION SEE "EVANGELICAL FEMINISM AND BIBLICAL TRUTH" BY THE SAME AUTHOR. JUST AS EYE-OPENING IS THE BOOK "RECOVERING BIBLICAL MANHOOD AND WOMANHOOD", GENERAL EDITOR WAYNE GRUDEM, BUT HAS OVER 20 CONTRIBUTING AUTHORS AND SCHOLARS ADDRESSING VARIOUS ISSUES. AFTER READING THIS BOOK ITSELF, YOU WILL KNOW WHY MANY CHURCHES AS WELL AS HOMES ARE SLOWLY BEING DESTROYED.
I like Wayne Grudem, he has a Systematic Theology book ehich is very good. This book was not any good for me at least. I wanted to know exactly how a woman is supposed to submit to her husband per the Bible and that wasn't even dealt with. He is countering rather radical feminism, which if you're not interested in, is pretty boring!
The Table of Contents is a listing of the objections made by evangelical feminists regarding the biblical complementarian view. Each chapter deals only with one subject and is brief. However, Grudem gives excellent, thorough, and biblical responses to each objection. This is a very handy compliment to the much larger and also excellent work on the same subject, Recovering Biblical Manhood & Womanhood by John Piper and Wayne Grudem.
When I purchased this ~300 page book, I did not realize that it was a condensation and slight updating of a much larger work by the same author, titled: "Evangelical Feminism and Biblical Truth: An Analysis of More Than 100 Disputed Questions." This book is reduced to about 40 key questions, and it covered most if not all the main arguments that I have heard put forward. Even at 300 pages, this book is really not very intimidating, and the format of the book is one of its most useful features. It can easily be used as a reference book and read selectively, as most of the topics are divided up into short chapters ranging from a couple of pages to ten or fifteen.
'Women were able to prophesy in both the Old Testament and the New (see 1 Cor 11:5). They could deliver messages from God to His people. But women could not assume the role of teacher over God's people in either the Old or the New Testament (see 1 Tim 2:12; 3:2; Titus 1:6 on New Testament teachers being only men, including the elders who did most of the teaching).' p 86
