Book Review - Gods's Good Design

About the Book
Too often we put these same passages in the ‘too hard basket’, or we make up our minds without taking a close look at them for ourselves. But we must let God’s word determine these issues, and not the culture in which we live.

Claire takes us through the same process she went through herself, looking closely at seven key Bible passages about men and women and how they should relate together in God’s purposes. Along the way she deals with many common objections, and applies the teaching of the Bible simply and practically to our relationships at home and in church.

The warmth and simplicity of the book means it will benefit every Christian—whether you have looked at these passages a thousand times, or you’ve never thought about them in your life.

About the Author
After working for some years as a nurse, Claire Smith spent many years at Moore College closely studying the Bible, completing a BTh, MA (Theology), and a PhD in New Testament. These days she spends her time writing and speaking at conferences. To relax, she writes letters to the paper and talks theology with the two men in her life–her husband, Rob, and their son, Nathanael (both avid musicians). She will also happily watch any sport on TV (although her favorite is rugby).

My Take on the Book
I found this book to be an interesting portrayal of the roles that men and women play not only in the Bible but in real life. I can honestly say that I had never thought of the relationships between men and women in this way, and it made me reconsider some of the things that I have believed in the past. While I did not agree with everything that she shared, I have to say that I was impressed with how well focused her approach was in regards to looking internally at herself and then being able to share that out with others to help them to better their overall relationships between themselves and other men and women. The book was simple to follow and easy to understand, and whether you agree or disagree with the points, author has done an amazing job at being able to pull the facts as she interprets them from the Bible and shares in further with the readers of this book.
