Availability: Ready to download

Christian complementarity is the conviction that God created men and woman as his image-bearers — equal in dignity, but distinct in roles. Contrary to popular opinion, these distinctive roles of men and women are not the cultural fads of a bygone era, but integral aspects of God’s good design for humanity, and therefore integral aspects toward humanity’s end — to glorify Go Christian complementarity is the conviction that God created men and woman as his image-bearers — equal in dignity, but distinct in roles. Contrary to popular opinion, these distinctive roles of men and women are not the cultural fads of a bygone era, but integral aspects of God’s good design for humanity, and therefore integral aspects toward humanity’s end — to glorify God by enjoying him forever. Good: The Joy of Christian Manhood and Womanhood is a unique volume from 14 different contributors who set out to cast a vision for manhood and womanhood that is rooted more in beauty than mere ideology, more in gladness than mere position.

    Great quick read that culls from several Christian voices (male and female with unique faith testimonies) all to affirm complementarianism as seen in scripture and as explained (to the secular observer) in the way men and women relate differently.

    A good introduction to complementarianism. Although I tend to lean more towards egalitarianism, I appreciated the care with which the topic of submission was handled. Marshall Segal's "Good News for the Not-Yet Married" and the Castleberries' "Purity We Can Count On" were favorite chapters. I also appreciated that each author was quick to point out that their complementary opinion did not mean men were more valuable to God than women.

This is something that is, unfortunately, prevalent in evangelical culture. It was refreshing to see both men and women affirming our equal stance before the Lord. 3.5 stars. I would've rounded up to four, but there were so many technical and formatting errors that I became distracted about half way through.

    The topics of gender and God-given roles are touchy and most people shrink under the force of militant feminism. However, this book handled the topics beautifully. Several different authors, both men and women, tackle the simple-yet-complex issues of manhood and womanhood.

From dissecting both masculinity and femininity and defining the differences as good, this book opens a pathway to honest discussion about the roles God has assigned for us. This book continuously affirms that men and women are equal. There is no doubt about that. However, it also explains the wonderful way men and women compliment each other. 
If you are struggling with what it means to be a man or a woman, take a look into this insightful book.

    Although short this book packs in a lot of substance and has a well rounded biblical framework. Covering topics like leadership, humility, marriage, feminism, transgender and so on. I liked that those who wrote each section knew what they were on about and gave good analysis of the surrounding culture and context of our day and how we got to this point. Highly Recommend this free ebook

    Good stuff. Not hugely revolutionary but basically faithful and with some fresh ways of expressing old truths. Probably unlikely to convince the unconvinced but encouraging to the convinced and potentially formative for the new/investigating/open-minded believer. A bit uneven in quality as these kind of compilation works tend to be. I particularly appreciated chapter 8 to the end.

    This book represents my position, but as a book it wasn't great. Seemed more like a collection of blog posts, rather than a well-reasoned argument. Joe Rigney's chapter, "Masculinity Handed Down," was excellent, though. I also really liked Courtney Reissig's chapter - "My Recovery from Feminism."

    Overall, a simple overview to biblical manhood and womanhood. The most helpful chapter was definitely the one on transgender issues. There were a lot of typos, which was unfortunate. For a more in depth look at manhood and womanhood, check out Piper's book on the subject.

    This is an excellent book for men and women married, single, or about to be married. The book shows how the Biblical harmony of man and woman makes them equal yet different. And shows us that we are different for a reason.

    Refreshing positive statement of Christian manhood and womanhood. Crisp and clear writing. Winsome, strong, and compelling to me. Great reminders for this husband, father, and pastor.

    I enjoyed this very timely book. It advocates the positions I hold in a very good way on issues like gender roles, homosexuality, and transgender issues. I found it to be good and helpful.
