Books — About Womanhood

There was order and harmony. Everyone knew his purpose. And it is that way with God’s picture in creation for a woman. (Owen Strachan & Gavin Peacock)

Last week we received two books I have ordered. One of them is called The Grand Design: Male and Female He Made Them. 

Usually, after skimming through a book, I’ll start reading it from page one. Well, usually — except, like in this case, when the title of a chapter immediately caught my attention. So I began reading…

Chapter Three: What Is Biblical Womanhood

Let’s have the authors, Owen Strachan & Gavin Peacock, explain what this chapter is about:

In this chapter, we consider the essence of life-giving biblical womanhood. As we go, we see how counter-cultural and God-honoring womanhood truly can be. Our study unfolds in three sections:

  1. The Role: A Helper, Not A Hindrance
  2. The Attitude: Reverent Womanhood
  3. The Response: Submission Under Sovereignty.

The book is interesting to read. It’s not preachy. It’s well grounded in the Word of God. The Grand Design: Male and Female He Made Them is written in a style that gives you the feeling of sitting at the table and listening to the authors talk. There is a good deal of chatting about soccer going on in this book 😀 which some of us women do not necessarily care much about. But, go ahead and read it anyway — it’s well worth it, interesting to read!

Of course there is a chapter (2) on biblical manhood, too. The other chapters are addressed to both — men and women — and give a good picture about how and why we struggle in our God-given roles.

A great book that clearly brings across that we, male and female, are created equally and have been given unique roles by God.
