Evangelical Feminism and Biblical Truth
An Analysis of More than 100 Disputed Questions
What does the Bible really teach about the roles of men and women? Bible scholar Wayne Grudem carefully draws on 27 years of biblical research as he responds to 118 arguments often levied against traditional gender roles. Grudem counters egalitarian and feminist critiques with clarity, compassion, and precision, showing God’s equal value for men and women while celebrating the beauty in their differences.
“The major strength of this work is that it engages with the best egalitarian writing over the past twenty years. This is a massive work which is unique in its breadth and detail.”
— Sharon James, author of many women’s biographies
“Though the book clearly reflects Grudem’s commendable scholarly research and clear thinking, he also presents the material in an extraordinarily well-organized format and in a highly readable way. Grudem proves masterful in his refutation of the arguments of egalitarianism. Yet, he maintains an unusually irenic and charitable spirit in so doing, for which he is to be commended. The book should be read by anyone who wants to understand both Scripture and the current debate on this theme. I highly recommend this new volume by Dr. Grudem as the appropriate follow-up to and extension of the discussion in his earlier volume, Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.”
— Richard L. Mayhue, The Master’s Seminary Journal
