This title presents an insightful look at the growth of feminism in society and the church. Created in the image of God, man and woman are designed to reflect God's own nature and being. At the very heart of the Godhead - Father, Son and Spirit - we see the qualities that form the basis of our design as men and women. In the Godhead, there is equality, diversity, unity and order, and it is these characteristics that shape our differences as well. In "Different by Design", Carrie Sandom explores the growth of feminism in our society, our families and our churches - and the challenges this poses to all three. Just as relationships in the Godhead are equal yet diverse, working together in unity and order, so are these characteristics to be reflected in the way men and women relate to one another. Scripturally grounded, "Different by Design" presents a context for the roles of men and women in marriage, the church and the workplace, with present-day implications for each.

Review:

"Throughout the book, Carrie gives practical encouragements to live out our God-given roles, particularly in our families and churches, liberating us to be who God created us to be and inspiring us to do the work he created us to do. Males and females, whether single or married, will benefit from reading this book. May it help women, in particular, see the beauty and wisdom of God's design for our lives."

(Keri Folmar)

"Different by Design is an impressive outline of the Bible's teaching on the sensitive subject of gender. Carrie's faithful handling of the Biblical text and its application today combines depth and clarity with simplicity and grace. She argues convincingly that the differences between men and women go much deeper than the biological and, far from being oppressive, the complementary nature of their relationship is part of God's loving design for human flourishing."

(Vaughan Roberts)

Different by Design traces God's specific design for men and women in the Bible from its revelation, rejection and masking, to its restoration in the lives of those who seek to apply it. With practical insights and scenarios, women especially will find this resource both biblical and culturally relevant.

(Margaret Kostenberger)

... explores equality, diversity and complemtarionism and she does so by tackling some of the disputed passages on this issue as well as the broader context of the whole of scripture... theological, practical and accessible.

(Evangelical Magazine of Wales)

... brings a warm, biblical sensibility to her discussion of male and female roles, especially in the church and home.

(World Magazine)

... a welcome addition to the ongoing discussion on issues surrounding the ministries of women... an immensely practical book, as no matter where on the spectrum the reader is in their thinking about how men and women relate, it is likely to help them keep thinking and asking key questions.

(Cross Way Magazine)
