Today on the CBMW Gender Blog, Jeff Robinson provides part one of a review of the new book by Mark Chanski, Womanly Dominion: More Than A Gentle and Quiet Spirit. Here is powerful word picture that Robinson includes from Chanski:
Due to high-powered feminist social pressures, they’ve got to keep telling themselves, ‘Play your position!'” Chanski writes. “On the field of life, women hear constant shouts from unprincipled sideline voices telling them to leave their God-assigned posts. These voices are much like the voices of misguided parents telling their goalie daughter to ‘Get the ball, honey, and try to dribble down field and score!’ But the coach has charged her to ‘Play your position’….she’s been assigned a glorious and important position in this world. But the sideline voices attempt to drown out her Lord’s words of instruction.”
Brothers and sisters, in a world of gender confusion and sexual anarchy, may we learn how to play our positions well. May the church be filled with strong men (1 Cor. 16:13-14) and godly, gentle women (1 Peter 3:4).
Complementing this book for women, pastor Chanski’s first book, Manly Dominion, challenges men– married and single, young and old– to reject passivity and lead courageously. Check it out.
