The book was written quite a while ago, and I don't believe it's been reprinted... so pick it up while you can. The copy I bought was in great shape until I actually opened it. The book's so old that the cover crumbled in my hands... Thank goodness for duct tape.

This book wasn't at all what I thought it would be but was a time to stop and look at myself.

Good book to read and learn from.

I really enjoyed this book. The first part resonated with me and I found myself not able to put it down. I recommend.

I was really ready for whatever this author had to say. I was looking for content for a talk I had to give on biblical masculinity and femininity. I found enough material buried in the book to be useful, amidst many qualifiers and apologies. However, I found it almost impossible to find a truly coherent, let alone concise or powerful quote. That was disappointing! If you are going to posit something, be brave and posit it boldly! If you aren't right, then there is no need to say it. And if you are right, say it boldly so we can understand why it is important. I happen to think he is on to something. Just wish he had said it better.

This is a great book, everyone should take time to read it. It will help with the divorce rate and give you the understanding that men and women think different.
Lawrence ("Larry") J. Crabb, Jr. is a psychologist, author, teacher and speaker, who is Spiritual Director for the American Association of Christian Counselors, and since 1996 has been Scholar-in-Residence of Colorado Christian University. He has written many other books such as Effective Biblical Counseling,Basic Principles of Biblical Counseling,Finding God,Inside Out,The Silence of Adam, etc.

He wrote in the Preface to this 1991 book, "The older I get, the more I cling passionately to a handful of truths that seem increasingly important... One of those truths is that the beginning of the gospel is the message of judgment, but its central jewel is forgiveness... A second truth is this: when our identity is legitimately affirmed, we will become more distinctively masculine and feminine in all of our relationships... This book revolves around these two beliefs... For me, the idea that the gospel centers on the wonder of ongoing forgiveness and the view that men and women... are enjoyably different at their core both fall into the category of 'things I have learned and become convinced of.'" (Pg. xi-xii)

He suggests, "I believe that men and women are different in important ways that, if understood and honored, can lead to a deep enjoyment of one another. I further believe that every husband, because he is a man, has precisely what his wife longs to receive and that every wife, because she is a woman, has precisely what her husband longs to receive, and that as each partner becomes increasingly other-centered and gives those unique elements to the other, the intimacy God intended will develop." (Pg. 112) He asks, "Is there something masculine about men and feminine about women that needs to be expressed in meaningfully different ways as they relate to one another for God's design to be most fully realized in this world? My answer is yes..." (Pg. 124)

He admits, "Things would be so much simpler if God had included a passage somewhere that began, 'Let me now tell you exactly what it means to be masculine and feminine.' ... There is, of course, no such passage. But I wonder if the biblical silence is LESS an indication that there are no sexual distinctives that deserve emphasis and MORE a safeguard against erecting a strict legalistic code of conduct for each sex to follow..." (Pg. 140) Later, he adds, "Biblical principles for marriage should not be defined as a group of rules by which we are required to order our lives. Although there are standards and we are commanded to obey them, an emphasis on all that Christians must do can easily obscure the POINT of obedience, which is to build enjoyable relationships with God and with each other..." (Pg. 209)

Crabb's books are understandably very popular among Christians who take a "positive" view towards psychology, and this book is an excellent example of why.
