This last Sunday we preached on Biblical Womanhood (1 Timothy 2:8-15). This sermon was part of a larger series titled, Shepherds of the Flock, in which we have been examining the role of elders. Inevitably, when talking about elders, the question arises, “Can women be elders”? And if not, why?
Feel free to listen to that sermon here.
If you are interested in growing in your knowledge of Biblical manhood and womanhood below are 3 PDF books that have been written on this topic.
First Resource is: 50 Questions: An Overview of Central Concerns about Manhood and Womanhood.
This is a rather short and easy read in which you can jump from question to question. This is a great place to start.
Second Resource is: Good: The Joy of Christian Manhood and Womanhood.
This is a fabulous resource written by many different authors. This book will definitely give you a good understanding of the importance of this topic in todays culture.
Third Resource is: Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
This is a much larger book than the previous two. This book is written by many different authors, broken up into 5 sections, and is 26 chapters long. In this book, you will gain a very thorough understanding of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and see why this is such an important topic today. This book will also take key texts and given detailed explanations of them so that you will clearly understand the teaching of God’s Word. I highly recommend this book.
