By critically examining the writings of egalitarians, Grudem
shows that, while egalitarian leaders claim to be subject to
Scripture in their thinking, what is increasingly evident in their
actual scholarship and practice is an effective rejection of the
authority of Scripture.
Egalitarianism is heading toward an Adam who is neither male nor
female, a Jesus whose manhood is not important, and a God who is
both Father and Mother, and then maybe only Mother. The common
denominator in all of this is a persistent undermining of the
authority of Scripture in our lives. Grudem’s conclusion is that we
must choose either evangelical feminism or biblical truth. We can’t
have it both ways!
“Biblical authority is at stake in the debate between
complementarianism and egalitarianism–because if you can get
egalitarianism from the Bible, you can get anything from the Bible.
The weight of Grudem’s cumulative argument is considerable, and
cannot easily be dismissed.”

This book is a powerful argument that 'evangelical feminism' undermines the authority of Scripture, whether directly or indirectly.
In writing on a topic which has often generated more heat than light, Grudem manages to write with an irenic tone alongside firm conviction. He fairly and critically interacts with the recent leading literature and arguments as he makes his case.
He recognizes and accepts that many of those who regard themselves as 'evangelical feminists' deny undermining the authority of Scripture. However, he does believe that the arguments they use actually do so.
You may not agree with all (or any!) of the arguments he makes, but if you want to get clarity on this issue, and be presented with both sides of the argument, whilst dealing with what the Bible does and doesn't say, this is a good place to start.
