Owen Strachan Discusses God’s Grand Design for Manhood & Womanhood on In the Market with Janet Parshall

The Grand DesignWhat 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.”
-Thomas R. Schreiner, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

About the Authors:

Owen Strachan is the president of the Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood and Associate Professor of Christian Theology at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri.

Gavin Peacock played for Chelsea Football Club. He is now Director of International Outreach for the Council on Biblical Manhood & Womanhood, and serves as a pastor at Calvary Grace Church in Calgary, Alberta.

Peter Mead Talks About the 4 Big Questions Christians Should Be Asking But Typically Don’t on In the Market with Janet Parshall

Peter Mead Janet Parshall Interview

Listen to a great interview with Peter Mead on In the Market with Janet Parshall. Their discussion focuses on the four big questions Christians should be asking, but typically don’t. Stream the interview here: MoodyRadio.org.

FoundationsAbout The Book:
You may never have thought much about these questions. But the fact is we all have a working version of the answers. Instead of speculating about who God is, Peter Mead invites us to begin with the claim that God has revealed Himself in Jesus. What kind of a God emerges from that claim? What kind of a vision for human beings and human flourishing? Christians have a word for it – ‘gospel’. It means ‘good news’. We think that what emerges is good news – THE good news.

Praise for Foundations:

“Many people build their lives on a weak foundation of sand. In Foundations, Peter Mead introduces you to the one concrete foundation poured deep enough to hold your life steady!”
Tony Reinke, Writer for Desiring God & author of Lit!

“The book of Acts tells of God’s plan for us to have relationship in the context of his grace. Foundations fills out this picture beautifully. Read and enjoy!”
-Darrell Bock, Senior Research Professor of New Testament, Dallas Theological Seminary, Dallas, Texas

Adrian & Celia Reynolds Discuss God’s Design for Intimacy on In the Market with Janet Parshall

And Then He Knew Her: A Biblical View of SexThis week Adrian and Celia Reynolds sat down with Janet Parshall to discuss God’s design for sex and intimacy, answering some of life’s most difficult questions.

CLICK HERE to listen to the interview.

About The Book:
Do we really need a book about sex? In a world seemingly obsessed, should this be a subject that stays ‘in the bedroom’? Adrian and Celia Reynolds explore what the Bible teaches about sex. What is sex for? Why is it important? And why does it belong in marriage? Taking on board these simple truths and applying these realities to your own life will ensure that your view of sex is no more and no less than God intends.

Praise For And Then He Knew Her:

“… A great introduction for those who don’t know what God has to say about His good gift. And a profitable reminder for those who have already searched the Scriptures.”
-Robin & Ursula Weekes, Emmanuel Church, Wimbledon

“Adrian and Celia take us back to God’s Word and explore how sex is described in the Bible. By doing so they open our eyes to profound truths; as husband and wife experience the close oneness of sexual intimacy they not only point towards a greater truth (Christ and the church) but they also learn and discover something of the very nature of God himself…This excellent short book will enrich any marriage.”
-Greg & Harriet Strain, Spicer Street Church, St Albans

“…no couple will read this without benefit, and every Christian should rejoice in the deeper, richer, more joyful and long lasting the Bible’s view on the matter is than that offered by the world! A brilliant little book and a healthy corrective!”
-Wallace & Lindsay Benn, Retired from Church of England ministry

Celia and Adrian ReynoldsAbout The Authors:
Adrian Reynolds is Director of Ministry of the Proclamation Trust and also serves as associate minister at East London Tabernacle Baptist Church, London.
