Larry Crabb has just released a new book. It’s called Fully Alive: A Biblical Vision of Gender that Frees Men and Women to Live Beyond Stereotypes.
In this hardcover by Baker, Crabb seeks to recover the biblical vision of gender and tries to encourage men and women to live according to their God-given identity per their sex.
The gender wars are hot among Christians today, so I’m curious to see how Crabb’s book will end up being received from both the progressive left and the conservative right.
Even so, the book seeks to present the two genders through the lens of love and what it means to love another human being. Carbb tries to transcend the gender role debate and focus on what Scripture says about being “fully alive” as a man or woman.Here are some interesting thoughts from the book that I’d like your comments on:
* Sarcasm, for some people, is a form of addiction to escape pain. Much like porn or drugs.
* A woman’s greatest fear is rejection.
* A man’s greatest fear is being alone.
* Divine beauty lives in the center of men and women when they follow Jesus.
