Are you interested in understanding the wider culture and your place within Gods plan for His people? Women are often greatly encouraged to learn that their driving desire to be a wife and mother is part of Gods plan and not a symptom of latent patriarchalism or a sell-out of their emancipated sisters. This book surveys historical, sociological and scientific defense of womens roles. It investigates cultural clichs. And, most important, it explores the biblical perspective of Gods planned order and how women are to function within it.
