Created in the image of God, man and woman are designed to reflect God’s own nature and being. At the very heart of the Godhead–Father, Son and Spirit–we see the qualities that form the basis of our design as men and women. In the Godhead, there is perfect equality, diversity, unity and order, and it is these characteristics that shape our differences as well. Carrie Sandom, along with a rising tide of like–minded Christians, is concerned about the growth of feminism in our society, our families and our churches–and the detriment this poses to all three. She clearly presents the problem and leads readers along the path to restore God’s design to its rightful place. Just as relationships in the Godhead are equal yet diverse, working together in unity and order, so are these characteristics to be reflected in the way men and women relate to one another. Scripturally grounded, Different by Design presents a biblical context for roles of men and women in marriage, the church and the workplace, with present–day implications for each.
Carrieâ€™s book provides a Bible overview of how men and women are â€˜different by designâ€™ so that they complement one another in the family and in the Church. (There is also a very helpful chapter on gender roles in the workplace). Carrie makes the case for â€˜complementarianismâ€™ being a way of modelling the gospel. It should be attractive to those who observe it. She is also clear on the alternatives and how unattractive a liberal or ultra-conservative position on gender roles can be. The book covers topics such as: equality of status and diversity of role; unity and diversity within the Trinity; what rebelling against Godâ€™s design looks like; Jesus - the true man; the perspective of eternity; Godâ€™s priorities in the Church and in the family. The book has a strong Bible content; it is strong on illustrations and application; it comes out of a long and varied ministry experience.
