Male and Female is for those with curiosity about what it means to be male and female today—and with courage to follow where the evidence leads. Make no mistake about it: this exploration calls for courage. Led by Renée Webb Sproles, the team of writers for Male and Female delve into such questions as:

  • Is someone’s gender set for life—or is it socially constructed?
  • Does the Bible really teach wives to submit to their husbands?
  • How can churches be a place where men and women are equally valued?

This book is a user-friendly, topical guidebook, so that you can explore your questions as they arise. Sproles has brought together a team of experts in biblical scholarship, cultural trends, church leadership, and counseling in order to put together a God-honoring resource that encourages curiosity and cultivates courage.
