"From the beginning we have insisted at the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood that the complementarian position is firmly rooted in the authority and sufficiency of Scripture. Here you will find answers to key questions in a concise format from two of the evangelical community's finest minds. May God use this book to encourage heartfelt obedience to his good and wise design." -Randy Stinson, Senior Vice President for Academic Administration and Provost, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary "To borrow a phrase from C. S. Lewis, there's a kind of 'Deep Magic' about the way God created man and woman-an ancient wonder that few of us postmoderns appreciate. Through a pragmatic arrangement of 50 Crucial Questions, Grudem and Piper bring out passage after passage of Scripture to awaken our minds and hearts to the wonder of what our Creator has done. This concise treatment of the major questions surrounding our roles in the church and home will catapult readers straight into God's Word to see what is really there." -Gloria Furman, author, The Pastor's Wife; Missional Motherhood; and Alive in Him "The core content of this book was tremendously needed and helpful when it was first published almost a quarter century ago. In our current generation, where there is breathtaking confusion and distortion regarding gender and marriage, it is needed more than ever. There is a desperate need for leaders of the evangelical church to speak with a wise, clear, and uncompromising biblical clarity. Grudem and Piper provide that clear voice, and I pray their answers will be heard and practiced so that God's glory will be more powerfully displayed through his grand design for men and women." -Erik Thoennes, Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies, Chair, Biblical and Theological Studies Theology Department, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University; Pastor, Grace Evangelical Free Church, La Mirada, California
