Product Description

In The Grand Design, Owen Strachan and Gavin Peacock clear away the confusion and open up the Scriptures. They show that the gospel frees us to behold the unity and distinctiveness of the sexes. In Christ, we have a script for our lives. Doxology, we discover, is in the details. Be prepared: this short and readable book is dangerous. Jesus has something better for us than a minimalistic manhood and a woebegone womanhood. You could say it like this: he wants to put the grand design on display.

Publisher's Description

The world has gone gray-fuzzy, blurry, gender-neutral gray. In a secularist culture, many people today are confused about what it means to be a man or a woman. Even the church struggles to understand the meaning of manhood and womanhood. In The Grand Design, Owen Strachan and Gavin Peacock clear away the confusion and open up the Scriptures. They show that the gospel frees us to behold the unity and distinctiveness of the sexes. In Christ, we have a script for our lives. Doxology, we discover, is in the details.

Editorial Reviews

We live in an age characterized by confusion on gender and sexuality ... Strachan and Peacock have provided a careful and faithful account of Scripture's vision for sexuality and gender. This book is urgently needed.
In this short book they've laid out how biblical complementarity in the home and church is both good and glorious. I wish every Christian would read and apply The Grand Design.
Strachan and Peacock don't simply defend a view of men and women that is traditional but now counter-cultural. They show it is beautiful.
While many evangelicals compromise, or wear 'gospel only' blinkers, this book refuses to avoid any of the issues. With clarity, compassion and cultural awareness the authors have skilfully crafted a Biblical manual which will richly reward study and equip caring Christians to navigate contemporary society and reach out to our generation.
... While you may not agree with every line, The Grand Design will encourage and empower you in living for God as the person God made you to be.
... Finally, we have a right-sized book to answer the questions men and women are asking or need to ask. Gavin Peacock and Owen Strachan are skilled and gracious communicators and it is a joy to see The Grand Design in print. May it find its way into the hands of every man and woman on the planet.
Owen Strachan and Gavin Peacock are reliable guides for the necessary return to biblical fidelity on one of our society's central confusions. Christian, you need to read this book.
Read, rejoice, and realign through the fogless clarity of this book. It will change your life, and you'll give praise to God that it has.
Our culture is desperate for men, for them to be Christlike husbands and fathers. This book joins the great cause of meeting that need, and you'll be glad you read it.
In an age so confused about identity and relationships between men and women, Strachan and Peacock have written an easily accessible and theologically clear must-read.
Confusion abounds today on what it means to be a man and what it means to be a woman. Peacock and Strachan put feet on the biblical teaching.

... an outstanding book on the issue of men and women's roles as determined by God's grand design ... compelling, thoroughly biblical, and God-honoring.
The point of conflict in the cultural war, the place where the armies collide is clear. It is cosmic confusion over gender, sexual orientation, and sexual identity. In Grand Design Peacock and Strachan have done the church an immense service. They have provided God's people with a valuable weapon, Truth! Read this little volume. It is a cup of cold water and in a dry and arid wasteland of lies and confusion.

What a great and timely book on the issue of the role and function of men and women. Concise and biblical, it deals with everything from marriage, manhood, womanhood, transgender and, of course, homosexuality; all issues facing Bible believing Christians in our day.
