The Grand Design

Male and Female He Made Them

Owen Strachan and Gavin Peacock
  • £7.99


The world has gone gray-fuzzy, blurry, gender-neutral gray. In a secularist culture, many people today are confused about what it means to be a man or a woman. Even the church struggles to understand the meaning of manhood and womanhood. In The Grand Design, Owen Strachan and Gavin Peacock clear away the confusion and open up the Scriptures. They show that the gospel frees us to behold the unity and distinctiveness of the sexes. In Christ, we have a script for our lives. Doxology, we discover, is in the details.

This book has many strengths. It provides a survey of significant biblical passages that defend the main contours of complementarianism and strongly locates gender distinction within the context of God's design for humanity. It invites its readers to delight in a doctrine that is often thought of as restrictive (especially for women). Above all, the authors' encouragement to men and women to pursue Christ is vivid through prose that can often only be described as breathless.

In this short book they've laid out how biblical complementarity in the home and church is both good and glorious. I wish every Christian would read and apply The Grand Design.
