Discovering God’s Design answers the call for a resource that any woman can use to help her reexamine her view of womanhood according to Scripture. Walker leads us, as women, on a journey to embrace the wonderful truth that being called “woman,” according to God’s design, is an essential aspect of our identity.” —Dr. Terri Stovall (PhD), Dean of Women’s Programs and Associate Professor of Women’s Ministries at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary Discovering God’s Design is a six-week Bible study for women of all ages. In a world where feminism and political correctness have threatened to undermine God’s design for a woman, her family, and her ministry, Discovering God’s Design provides biblical guidelines on how to live out the unique calling God has placed on each woman’s life. Beginning in Genesis, you will explore how God crafted Adam and Eve to be His image bearers in the world. God, in His infinite wisdom, created men and women to complement each other. He designed Adam to be the leader, provider, and protector of Eve, and He designed Eve to be Adam’s helpmate. However, with the introduction of sin in Genesis 3, man and woman have continued to struggle in their relationships with each other and the world. But there is good news. God provided an answer to the constant tension by offering us salvation through Jesus Christ. Jesus’s death, burial, and resurrection did not remove the God-given gender distinctions. Instead, it restored them. Women are now free to discover what it means to be an image bearer, how He has gifted each woman for a specific task, and then provided an opportunity, within the boundaries of scripture, to accomplish the task set before them. If you have wondered what it means to be a biblical woman, then look no further. Discovering God’s Design is for you!

This book explores the way that gender relationships changed under Christendom and then after Christendom, challenging us to rethink gender relations in both church and society. Fran Porter goes beyond the personal aspects of gender identity to structural, philosophical and theological considerations; and offers a paradigm for gender relationships different to the oppositional models that currently prevail. "This is an accessible read about the complex topic of gender, Christendom and post Christendom. For those seeking to explore the history of gender relationships in the church from the first century this is an excellent introduction." Dianne Tidball, East Midland Baptist Association, UK "Through careful handling of the argument, Fran Porter helps us to glimpse that vision of what the new community of Christ, the new kin-work he inaugurated, could look like - and how the church, in the way she is in the world, can be radical good news for men and women everywhere." Sian Murray Williams, Tutor in Worship Studies at Bristol Baptist College

"Krell writes here with a brilliance of style that few other philosophers can match." -- John Sallis Although the Romantic Age is usually thought of as idealizing nature as the source of birth, life, and creativity, David Farrell Krell focuses on the preoccupation of three key German Romantic thinkers -- Novalis, Schelling, and Hegel -- with nature's destructive powers -- contagion, disease, and death.

Discussions about gender continue in many Christian denominations. With good people and solid arguments on each side of the divide, there seems to be little hope for a synthesis or even constructive dialogue. In this brief book, John Stackhouse proposes a way forward. Stackhouse provides biblical, theological, and practical arguments for his own understanding of the issue: Equality is the biblical ideal, but patriarchy is allowed and regulated by a God who has larger kingdom purposes in mind. Thought provoking and distinctive in its clarity and honesty, Finally Feminist will be extremely useful for deepening the gender conversation in the church.

With issues such as the ordination of women and the call for "inclusive" language affecting the Church today, Dr. Amda Spencer has provided a helpful and important study of how the Scriptures really speak to these and other issues related to the role of women in the Church. From the biblical account of creation and "the fall" to other relevant Old Testament passages, "Beyond the Curse" carefully examines the attitudes toward and teachings about women" especially those of Jesus and Paul. "Beyond the Curse" sheds light on instances in the New Testament of feminine authority and on feminine metaphors used in Scripture to define God, the church, and society. Jesus is shown to have broken through the cultural barriers of first-century Palestine in His attitudes toward and dealings with women. Paul's later works are found to be consistent with Jesus' views, as Spencer notes the vital place of women in Paul's ministry. Women in leadership roles and the many implications are viewed firsthand by Dr. Spencer" herself a minister. Dr. William David Spencer, the author's husband, gives an afterword, explaining his personal journey as the spouse of an ordained minister. Timely and vital to an understanding of the growth of a woman's role in the Church, "Beyond the Curse" is a compelling and important work.
