I rated this book a 1-star not because it was poorly written or because I disagreed with perspectives given in the book, but because of the author's treatment of certain topics covered. Below are three examples:

This is one of the best books I've read in quite awhile. The concepts of gender and sexuality are a huge part of our culture today, but they are difficult to understand.

The most helpful discussion was on 1 Corinthians 11 (head coverings).

Important point for thinking through our current involvement with our society.

“If women really are practically interchangeable with men, because there is hardly any difference, why would it be important to strive for equal representation in a presidential cabinet? The distinction becomes something equivalent to hair color. Would fairness demand an equal number of blondes and brunettes in government?” 1 likes
