Submission. Headship. The roles of men and women in the church and in marriage. What does the Bible say about these hotly debated topics today?
Dr. George Knight sets forth the New Testament teaching concerning the role relationship of men and women. He first presents biblical evidence for submission and headship in marriage and in the church and then responds to objections raised against this evidence.
"The role relationship of men and women in marriage and their role relationship in the church are founded on exactly the same principles," Dr. Knight concludes, "and the biblical teaching on these two areas of life must stand or fall together."
In this expanded edition Dr. Wayne Grundem offers a thorough discussion of the word "head" (kephalē) in New Testament and other Greek literature. His findings shed new light on questions about headship in the home and the church.
At a time when society opts for twisted definitions of "equality" and "liberation," this volume shows the beauty of God's revealed design.
