Product Description

What does it mean to be a ''normal'' woman or man? What are appropriate sex roles in marriage? In parenthood? In the workplace? Those questions have become harder and harder to answer. Van Leeuwen provides a sane, thought-provoking guide out of our confusion. After gauging the influence of biology and culture, she demonstrates that there yet remains room for a good deal of personal freedom and Christian responsibility. Paper from InterVarsity, 225 pages.

Publisher's Description

Winner of a 1991 Christianity Today Critics' Choice Award (1st place; contemporary issues). How are men and women different? How does being a male or a female affect us at work? What are the roles of husband and wife in marriage and parenting? What does Christianity have to do with any of these things? Sexual identity lies at the core of the crucial questions that everyone asks of life. Yet today those questions are harder and harder to answer. Traditions about the "real man" and the "woman's place" have been challenged. Scientists debate what nature actually dictates for male and female. And theologians engage in heated controversy over what the Bible really says about female submission and male headship. In this sane yet provocative book, an informed social scientist and committed Christian thinker braves a jungle of confusion to offer unusual insight on the part genes, culture and faith play in making us the men and women we are -- and ought to become.

    Bougtht this book at a Christian College clearance sale. The title made me curious. The author has some good suggestions on co-parenting, but the book is clearly feminist. Though not frankly stated this reader gets the feeling she believes in evolutionary sociology from a theological perspective. The final chapter reveals her feminist theology. Lots of weak argumentation, straw men and clouding of the issue as far as gender roles.
