God’s Blueprint for Men and Women
by Carrie Sandom
Publisher:Christian Focus Publications
If the topic of the role of women is one you have an interest in, then this book will certainly add to your exploration. Carrie Sandom has presented a strong theologically based argument as to what God had in mind when designing both men and women and how they can best complement each other, both within marriage and within leadership of the church. If your view is one that aligns with Sandom’s then you will find this book well researched and a good backing of your viewpoint. If on the other hand you are of a different opinion, you will still find this book to present a strong viewpoint into the discussion which needs to be considered within any discussions on the topic. I did enjoy Sandom’s suggestion that ‘leader’ and ‘helper’ are not hierarchical roles, but instead complimentary equal roles, both essential in the cohesion of man and woman.
