EnGendered is a winsome and eloquent theology of gender. Selected as a finalist by WORLD magazine for its 2015 book-of-the-year award, the volume brings clarity and compassion to a gender-confused society. Writing in a calm, confident, and positive tone, and concluding that gender difference is a gift from God that should be celebrated, enGendered goes a long way in speaking the truth in love and avoiding the shrill tone of polemics and emotionalism that too often characterizes discussions on this topic.
To summarize, this volume speaks to Christians who want to know what the Bible says about gender difference and why. It also is of value for people who struggle with same-sex attraction but want to follow Christ.
