The newest issue of the Journal for Biblical Manhood & Womanhood (Spring 2010, Volume 15.1) has just been posted online. It looks as provocative and useful as ever.
I’ve posted the full table of contents below; I commend all of the pieces to you. In particular, Rob Lister’s article on how a husband can lead his marriage in a godly way looks outstanding. So much good comes from a husband taking initiative to talk with his wife on a regular basis, especially when that conversation is designed to range over all aspects of a marriage. I’m a very young husband, but it seems clear already that when we assume our marriages are healthy without sustained effort and discussion, we gear ourselves up for serious trouble.
Readers will also want to look for insightful writing from Al Mohler, Denny Burk, Tom Schreiner, Jim Hamilton, and Philip Bethancourt (who has a very nice review). Read the whole thing, and gain clarity on biblical gender roles in a confused–and confusing–world.
