Renee Sproles

Renée Webb Sproles grew up in Murfreesboro, TN in a small neighborhood that backed up to her grandparents’ farm. She and her husband, David, met at freshman orientation at Harding University in 1989 and married three years later. In 2005 Renée began homeschooling her two children, Emma and Houston, and in 2014 during her 10th year of homeschooling, Renée became the director of The School of Christian Thought at North Boulevard Church of Christ. God has used her many years of homeschooling experience as well as her degree in Public Relations to develop the facets of the SCT: a speaker series, accredited college coursework through Hope International University, a residential School of Discipleship (teen-adult), and the Discipleship Tutorial (a homeschool tutorial for grades 5-12). At the Discipleship Tutorial, Renee teaches government, economics, personal finance, study skills, and English grammar and writing. She and her husband, David, have co-taught parenting classes for 20 years and currently teach a marriage and family class of 100 students each week.

Being male and female means much more than figuring out who’s “in charge” or whether men or women get to perform certain roles. Far from being bad news, God’s word on gender is great news when we live as he intended.

Not pitting one gender against another—elevating women or men above the other—On Gender charts a third way, the way of embracing and enjoying our gender differences. Amid the arguments of rigid complementarians and liberal egalitarians, find clarity by reading this book. Renée Sproles challenges both men and women by inviting them to obey Scripture with imagination and joy. Brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, church leaders and lay persons alike will find in this book a fresh and winsome perspective on what it means to be male and female. We can glorify God in our daily lives and bring out the best in each other to give the world an in-the-flesh picture of Christ and the church.
