"Biblical authority is at stake in the debate between complementarianism and egalitarianism-because if you can get egalitarianism from the Bible, you can get anything from the Bible. The weight of Grudem's cumulative argument is considerable, and cannot easily be dismissed." -J. Ligon Duncan III, Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi "While authors and scholars sympathetic to egalitarianism may be loath to consider they may in fact be wrong, Grudem pleads with his readers to reconsider their positions." -Michael Easley, Pastor, Fellowship Bible Church, Brentwood, Tennessee "Wayne Grudem exhibits faithfulness to the biblical revelation and courage in the light of near universal opposition. There is not a more important book to read on the subject than this one." -Paige Patterson, President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary "The entire Body of Christ owes an enormous debt of gratitude to Wayne Grudem for his courage in taking on what has become a Goliath within the camp of modern-day evangelicalism." -Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, author; Host, Revive Our Hearts "Wayne Grudem takes a vital stand and encourages us to join him. He tackles the issue firmly and fairly and with the clarity we have come to expect." -Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, Ohio "However fervently we hope that the answer to this book's question is a resounding no, Grudem furnishes evidence that cannot be lightly dismissed." -Robert W. Yarbrough, professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary
