In the struggle between the sexes, Ronald and Beverly Allen are peacemakers. With feminists they feel fully the past and present pain, the yearning for new freedom and fulfillment. But they also trust the Bible-the source for all that is oldest and best in male-female traditions.
To open your mind to what really matters in the women's movement, the Allens take you everywhere: to the incomparable events in Eden and to Paul's perplexing directives in the New Testament; to Betty Friedan in the sixties and a different Betty Friedan in the eighties; to Sarah and Steinem, to Deborah and deBeauvoir, to Proverbs 31 and Archie Bunker.
The result is a call to balance, to help you rise from the ruts of injustice and insensitivity, and yet stay in the safe confines of God's design.
