I am a little disappointed that I have only been able to give a response to Grudem's chapter on men and women. However, I'll save that for another day, or days. I promised in a post a week ago to offer resources. Some of the best books on the subject are listed to the right. They include Discovering Biblical Equality, Beyond Sex Roles, and Good News for Women.
Much of what I have learned about the biblical model of mutual submission and equality, I learned from resources at Christians for Biblical Equality. CBE has an excellent blog, which is dedicated to the subject, unlike this blog which tends to wander from equality to environmental stewardship to my wildlife garden.
