The Mystery of Man and Woman

Genesis 1:27-28 (NIV)  27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. 28  God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Today’s post digs into the mystery of human gender referred to in Ephesians 5:28-33, courtesy of NewWay Ministtries:

Dr. Larry CrabbA Must Read!  Popular culture sends mixed messages about what makes a man masculine or a woman feminine. Is it a suit, high heels, a fancy car, a clean house? In his new book Fully Alive: A Biblical Vision of Gender That Frees Men and Women to Live Beyond Stereotypes, Dr. Larry Crabb encourages the reader to put aside cultural notions of masculinity and femininity to look at what God had in mind when he created humans as male and female.

In Fully Alive, Dr. Larry Crabb suggests that God has created humans as male and female to reveal unique and important aspects of how God relates with his created beings. Interspersed with personal stories and examples from his thirty years as a psychologist, Crabb explores what it means to be a man who embraces masculinity or a woman who embraces femininity.Click here for more information or to order.
