Description

An easy-to-read but compelling look at the Bible passages we find difficult to understand and apply when it comes to knowing how God wants Christian men and women to relate, particularly in the church and in the home.

Claire Smith has studied this subject over many years and this accessible yet thorough look at relevant passages of Scripture allows the Bible to set the agenda on matters that are often determined by the views of modern Western cultures. There is an excellent chapter on the abuse of authority and power (including physical abuse).

This book is useful for:
• Anyone in Christian ministry.
• Anyone who has never taken a good look at passages like 1 Timothy 2, 1 Corinthians 11 and 14, and Ephesians 5.
• Anyone who is not sure why they have come to the particular view they have on these texts, or is not sure what their view is.
• Anyone who wants to make sure the Bible is the highest authority in all of life.
