Being complementarian is a conviction that men and women are ‘equal but distinctive’ as Beynon and Tooher put it. It’s a position that doesn’t align well with our society’s view of gender and one which we could easily be embarrassed and apologetic about. Embracing Complementarianism doesn’t try to be defensive of this position, but explores and celebrates the goodness of such a view in the light of it being God’s good plan for humans to flourish. Instead of merely being about who can and can’t do what, the book looks into why it is a positive thing to have distinction in roles and provides plenty of practical suggestions for how these ideas can be investigated and implemented within a local church context. Questions that have been provided at the end of each chapter give you the opportunity to reflect, whether individually or within a group. This book is well worth reading whatever our view.
