What does it mean to be male? What about female? What are gender roles? Janet Parshall discusses God’s grand design for manhood and womanhood with special guest Owen Strachan. Listen here: Media Link.
About The Book:
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.
Praise for The Grand Design:
“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.”
-R. Albert Mohler, President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
“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.”
-Andy Naselli, Assistant Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology, Bethlehem College and Seminary, Minneapolis, Minnesota
“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.”
