This past Sunday, as we entered 1 Timothy chapter 2, we are going to hit the topics of biblical manhood/womanhood over the next couple of Sundays. So, along with the preaching, we wanted to highlight a couple of recources for furthur study. Here are the resources we recommended this week:
- Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, edited by John Piper and Wayne Grudem. A staple resource over the past 25 years, these very thorough book looks at the relevant scriptures on the topic, cultural application, and even ethical questions. Written by a variety of authors, it covers most questions people have about the topic.
- The Accidental Feminist: Restoring our Delight in God's Good Design by Courtney Reissig. A shorter book than Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, this resource is more directed to a fresh look at Biblical Womanhood. Realizing that the feminist movement has influenced in ways we may not even realize, the author goes back to the Bible as our main source for understanding God's design in our lives and how to live in the good of it.
- Disciplines of a Godly Man by R. Kent Hughes. Hughes points out in a helpful way many of the pitfalls for men and how to avoid them by focusing on God's call on our lives. From personal devotions to the workplace to the home, we see how men are called to be servant leaders and what that looks like in each sphere of our lives.
