This book is not meant to be a detailed explanation of the complementarian position, but a quick overview suitable for persons unfamilar with the biblical and theological issues present. Strauch hits all the major points, and provides a good summary of complementarian thought. He definitely achieves his intented purpose.This volume would be an excellent basis for a Bible study with a group of laypersons, or as an addition to a smaller church library.For a MUCH more elaborate, detailed and scholarly treatment of the complementarian viewpoint, try "Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood" by John Piper and Wayne Grudem.If it's a quick, easy-to-read overview of what the Bible says on gender relationships that you want, however, then this book is the one to buy.
