DESCRIPTIONLeadership is Male - David PawsonThis is a relatively thin book and by no means an attempt at anything near exhaustive on the subject of male and female. David Pawson makes it his stated aim to simply expound upon this one aspect concerning men and women’s respective roles – biblical, authoritative leadership is male. He shows from Scripture that patriarchy (males taking the lead in families and Church) is a very evident feature of Old and New Covenants as well as Pre-Covenant days.The issue of feminism is shown to be a matter of women refusing to accept the simple command to be in submission. Equally importantly male chauvinism is shown to be an overreaction causing men to become dictators rather than gentle, loving leaders. It’s all pretty obvious to those who are filled with the loveliness of the Spirit of Christ and have read the plain words of Holy Scripture.The author provides a clear, detailed biblical exposition on what is an extremely topical issue. With leadership gender issues being debated in many churches, this book will continue to assist, inform, and teach what the Bible tells us about the male leadership. An essential resource, this is the long awaited revised edition of an important title.Elisabeth Elliot writes in the Foreword: “Here is a simple, sane, serious treatment of the subject by a man who loves God, respects women, and takes the inspiration of Scripture and the integrity of the apostles for granted. He deals with all the ‘difficult’ texts. He tells us that his subject is not a clerical issue, nor is it hierarchical, situational, historical, or experimental; it is biblical. Read this book. The exegesis points to the mystery. Mysteries are things revealed, not explained. Mysteries are always unsettling.”
