Publisher's Summary

The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook’s direct narration of a book’s text, Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: Audio Lectures include high-quality live recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.

While evangelicalism dukes it out about who can be church leaders, the rest of the 98 percent of us need to be well-equipped to see where we fit in God's household and why that matters. The Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: Audio Lectures will help improve the culture of our churches and disciple men and women to read, understand, and apply Scripture together within them. Until both men and women grow in their understanding of their relationship to Scripture, there will continue to be tension between the sexes in the church.

These lectures explore questions such as: Do men and women benefit equally from God's word? Are they equally responsible in sharpening one another in the faith and passing it down to the next generation? Do we need men's Bibles and women's Bibles, or can the one, holy Bible guide us all? Is the Bible, God's word, so male-centered and authored that women need to create their own resources to relate to it?

The Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: Audio Lectures, featuring author and speaker Aimee Byrd, explore the feminine voice in Scripture as synergistic with the dominant male voice. Lessons fortify believers in a biblical understanding of brotherhood and sisterhood in God's household and the necessity of learning from one another in studying God's word. This series helps to correct biblicist trends in the church today, affirming that we do not read God's word alone, but within our interpretive covenant communities - our churches. The responsibility of every believer, men and women together, is being active and equal participants in and witnesses to the faith.

An encouraging and thought provoking book.

Listening to Aimee was both encouraging and refreshing. Her exegetical work is remarkable for a layperson. The insights she shares address more than biblical manhood and womanhood, with her analysis of the role of the church and para-church movements in the life of believers being especially helpful.

Just get the whole book instead!

Abridging a work is difficult. There’s always stuff you’d love to keep that ends on the cutting room floor. Hopefully, at the end, you have something that keeps the core of the larger work, but without the detail.

And having listened to booth the book and these lectures, I don’t think the lectures quite hit the mark. In the book (which is excellent!), Aimee recognises the “yellow wallpaper” metaphor is critical and might put readers on the defensive, so she gives it a thorough treatment and explanation. The lectures try to do that but it doesn’t have the same force it does in the book. As a result, every time she refers back to it in subsequent lectures, it doesn’t have the force it did when engaging with the book.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably trying to decide one of 2 things:

1) is this extra stuff as a companion piece to the book?
2) can I get everything I need from this shorter download?

I think the answer to both questions is No.
Just get the whole book, which is excellent.

Listen for yourself.

This book is incredible and, after listening for myself, I’m discovering that Aimee has been hideously slandered by many pastors and laypeople.

wonderful insight

A refreshingly affirmative perspective of women's value to both God and his church. A compelling appeal which challenges popular patriarchal sentiments of conservative Christianity. Eve does not personify subordination, but instead the redemptive promise of glorification. Please share far and wide!
