Clark's work on the roles of men and women in Christian culture has strongly shaped my own understanding of those roles. I read his work in 1980 after making a state in life decision to be married (yet before marrying), as I was trying to understand what my role should be as a husband and father. Finally, Clark finds some social scientists that agree with the scriptures and the Fathers.

One of the best sections in the book was where he discussed at length the transition from a relationship oriented society to a functional society.

2. Examination of various branches of science, including a lot of feminist literature, to determine if the sciences back up the traditional reading of Scripture. One of the best sections in the book was where he discussed at length the transition from a relationship oriented society to a functional society. He carefully explained how the modern mindset differed from the pre-modern one and how many aspects of the modern mind work against the Biblical worldview.

Men should also take up the role of helping their women in performing domestic chores such as cooking and washing. They should appreciate the fact that things have changed in the modern society, where women can now work in offices and earn income, which is the role that was traditionally considered as being for men. In conclusion, there is the need for all of us to embrace traditional gender roles and improve them rather than doing away with them as the media advocates. Traditional roles are still needed for continuous growth and existence of the family institution.

Clark's work on the roles of men and women in Christian culture has strongly shaped my own understanding of those roles. I read his work in 1980 after making a state in life decision to be married (yet before marrying), as I was trying to understand what my role should be as a husband and father.

Clark begins with a review of scripture's teaching on roles of men and women, mainly from Genesis and the epistles. Next Clark reviews how the Fathers of the Church interpreted those passages. Finally, Clark finds some social scientists that agree with the scriptures and the Fathers. (I'll bet there were orders of magnitude more social scientists that disagreed with his position.) The social science section was probably the weakest of his arguments. Maybe it's because I place little value on social science's views on how Christians need to behave.

To put this work into context, Clark has a MA in Sociology if I remember correctly. I've always understood the social science aspects in this book to be his justification, maybe only to himself, that his Sociology degree wasn't wasted. In effect, his doctoral dissertation without the degree.

Clark built his arguments on the understanding of the roles of men and women as viewed by the early church. Clark proceeds to show the relevance of this position in the 20th century. It''s a pity the Christian Church seldom reflects these teachings from our pulpits.

The only thing better I've read on the subject is John Chrysostom's commentaries on Ephesians 5, which was one of Clark's sources. (It's also a much shorter read!)

Though I occasionally disagree with Clark's prescriptions, including digging up the role of deaconesses, this is a magisterial work that you should ideally read cover to cover before saying, "I disagree."

The basic insight is theological, although people today will expect engagement with the social disciplines, and Clark engages the social disciplines quite squarely in the course of writing a complete book.

It helped feed into my own Yonder (The Collected Works of CJS Hayward), which provides insights challenging the usual dichotomy of "traditional-feminist" with "traditional-masculist-feminist", an insight which Clark appeared to accept in correspondence.

The fact that this work has an Amazon sales rank greater than 200,000 says more about the state of our culture than it does the value of this book. The author is a Yale sociologist who uses knowledge of his chosen vocation to peruse scripture and church tradition for Christian teaching on gender roles. In a little less than 800 pages Clark offers up a stunning theology of how the church has responded to gender issues in the past and how we as modern-day believers should respond to this current hornet's nest of political correctness. I am so convinced of the importance of the gender issue debate and the strength of the work Clark has done in this book that I believe every Christian should read it. The Christian church is stagnating and ineffective in today's issue debates not because her positions are poor, but because she has become ignorant and apathetic.

Thorough interaction with biblical text, feminists and conservative elements on this difficult topic. Also, interacts with social sciences as subtitle suggests.
Find his documentation well done and so useful. The material on the scriptural teachings is much more useful to the Christian church than those dealing with the sociological, community issues.
