Although we may go to bed at night believing the gospel, we wake up every morning needing to hear it again. Yet most of us don’t have time to dive into a lengthy commentary on the book of Romans—the book Paul wrote in order to showcase the glorious riches of the gospel.

Thankfully seasoned counselor and author Elyse Fitzpatrick makes the message of Romans readily accessible in 31 devotional-like chapters on what Martin Luther called “the very purest Gospel.” Perfect for even the busiest of us, Elyse helps us grasp the practicality of the gospel message and experience the deep comforts articulated in the book of Romans.

There is nothing soft or sentimental about the comfort offered in this book. Instead, it opens our eyes to see the miseries of our self-absorption and self-effort salvation and then applies the substantive, solid comfort of abundant grace, imputed righteousness, purchased peace, blessed wretchedness, no condemnation, no separation.

—Nancy Guthrie, author, Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible Study Series

Elyse’s gratitude for God’s grace spills out onto every page of this book as she opens the pages of her life and comforts us with the comfort she has received from God’s Word. Her theological precision and her joy in God’s extravagant love instructed my mind and thrilled my heart.

—Susan Hunt, former director of Women’s Ministries, PCA

In this day and age, we need more courageous visionaries who seek to release women in ministry while honoring the complementarian framework of God’s Word. This is a helpful resource for all who wish to join in this pursuit.

—Mary A. Kassian, professor of women’s studies, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Women’s Ministry is a biblically rich reflection of the authors’ very thesis-when men and women humbly and joyfully complement each other’s God-given roles and gifts, spiritual grace flows for the nurture of His Church.

Jesus and the Feminists: Who Do They Say That He Is?

  • Author: Margaret Elizabeth Köstenberger
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 256

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Jesus and the Feminists provides a detailed survey and critique of various feminist interpretations of Jesus. Gain insight into the debate through the author’s survey of the feminist movement and her conclusions of a radical misunderstanding of Jesus that has resulted from this movement. Köstenberger then critiques the relevant works of well-known feminist scholars and the ways they interpret certain passages of Scripture related to Jesus and his approach to women.

This practical resource points the way to a conservative, complementarian view of the biblical message regarding Jesus’ stance toward women and offers both men and women a biblical view of their roles in the church and the home.

Dr. Köstenberger gives us a here a solid, sad, scrupulously fair case study of ideology deflecting exegesis over an entire generation. She shows conclusively that the attempts of a long series of scholars to find Jesus affirming women’s leadership in some way have entirely failed. Surely this is an important cautionary tale for our times.

J.I. Packer, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology, Regent College

Who is Jesus? Was he a chauvinist? A feminist crusader? Or an egalitarian emancipator of women? In this significant work, Marny Köstenberger investigates whether the portraits of Jesus painted by proponents of women’s equality truly fit the Gospel narrative. Her analysis of underlying hermeneutics is careful and concise. Her conclusions, balanced and well-reasoned. Is Jesus who they say he is? This is a valuable resource for all who seek to answer this all-important question.

—Mary A. Kassian, Professor of Women’s Studies, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild

Feminism has left its imprint on virtually every aspect of Western culture, including the Christian faith and the interpretation of the Scriptures. Margaret Köstenberger expertly surveys the scholarly work of feminists on the person of Jesus Christ. We are treated to the entire landscape of feminist scholarship on Jesus, from radical feminists to egalitarian evangelicals. Most important, Köstenberger subjects the claims of feminist scholarship to critical scrutiny, showing that they fail to measure up with the teaching of Scripture. Köstenberger’s criticisms are irenic, but at the same time they show the deficiencies of the feminist paradigm.

Evangelical Feminism and Biblical Truth: An Analysis of More Than 100 Disputed Questions

  • Author: Wayne Grudem
  • Publisher: Crossway
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 864

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

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, Evangelical Quarterly

Though the [book’s] contents reflect Grudem’s commendable scholarly research and clear thinking, he also presents the material in an extraordinarily well-organized format and in highly readable prose. . . . 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. . . . [This 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 the earlier volume, Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.

Richard L. Mayhue, research professor of theology, The Master’s Seminary

Impressive . . . Leaves no stone unturned. Grudem deals with every question imaginable that is connected with the biblical texts on the topic from Genesis 1 to 1 Timothy 2 . . . In all cases Grudem tries to argue in the best way possible, taking into account the most recent research and literature on each topic. . . . The book is meant to be used as a reference book when looking for answers to a specific argument in the debate.

—Jürg Buchegger, Evangelical Review of Theology

Through His Eyes: God’s Perspective on Women in the Bible

Eve, Sarah, Deborah, Mary, the woman at the well… women have played pivotal roles in redemptive history. Their case studies reveal God’s perspective on women, then and now. Few biblical teachings have been as misunderstood and muddled by those inside and outside the church as its instruction concerning women. Through His Eyes answers the question “What does God think about women, and how does he treat them?” by walking readers through several biblical case studies.

This volume is an exposition of the dignity and glory the Lord showers on women. The author encourages women to delight in their creation and calling, and he challenges men to honor women as does the Lord himself.

Jerram Barrs is the founder and resident scholar of the Francis A. Schaeffer Institute at Covenant Theological Seminary, where he teaches apologetics and outreach as professor of Christianity and contemporary culture. He and his wife also served on staff at English L’Abri for many years.
