BACK IN PRINT!

Knowing God and Understanding Men

Knowing God and Understanding Men is now back in print with improved graphics. 13 Lessons with Answer Guide, 216 pages, 8 1/2 X 11, perfect-bound. Excellent tool for grounding women in foundational Bible and womanhood wisdom. Can be used as an introduction or follow-up to Five Aspects of Woman course.

Did God really put men in charge? Does He know how bad it is down here and what sin has done to marriage and family? Does God care about women? Does He care about the unloved, barren, and abandoned ones? Does He understand that even if a woman is loved, fruitful, and socially and economically secure, it is still not remotely enough?

Genesis gives the answers to all these questions on the cosmic scale of world foundations and in the intimate family story of God’s people in their earliest generations.  Knowing God and Understanding Men is a course designed to help women see God and men. Thus seeing, students will be better able to walk in faith toward God and in faithfulness toward men.

Five Aspects of Womannow better than ever!

Five Aspects of Woman has been available in one form or another for over 20 years.  In the last three years a great deal of time, effort, and prayer have gone into upgrading this course to make the “deluxe” version, ready for the 21st century.  What makes this version the best and most complete?

  • Stronger Biblical and theological content–more extensive and clearly stated
  • Universal applications–speaks to other cultures and generations (Not only postmodern America)
  • Classic illustrations: Fleeting Americanisms replaced with Biblical and global allusions
  • Cleaner formatting, fewer errors–always a good thing!
  • Best resources consolidated in three volumes: For the first time, the Five Aspects of Woman course, the Frequently Asked Questions including notes on cross-types, the outline of the Five Aspects of Man, the extensive wisdom supplement, the course Answer Guide, the facilitator helps, plus the book on Deborah–are all here, updated and presented as cleanly and accurately as possible in three volumes.

A woman from Durango, Colorado, recently found the Five Aspects. She wrote, “I was trying to write this down (the Bible’s teaching on gender), and now I realize I don’t have to–it’s already right here.”  It really is right here–check it out, www.fiveaspects.net.

A Bridge Too Far — When Masculinity Mattered at the Movies

Brad schaeffer's essay at Big Hollywood looks at the masculinity portrayed in the 1977 film A Bridge Too Far, noting the sea change in the kind of men one finds in film 40 years ago compared to the male "heros" of today: "the pasty-faced overly-sensitive coastal metrosexual vampire ('Twilight') or the buff but caricatured superhero ('The Green Lantern'). Read all of Schaeffer's essay here.

Schaeffer concludes his essay with this observation:

My son, not yet 10, loves this movie [A Bridge Too Far]. My theory is that when he sees how these soldiers comport themselves with stoic valor that belies their genuine fears it taps into his still developing innate manhood; something primordial in him triggers a connection with alpha males like Col. Frost, the taciturn Gel. Gavin (O’Neal) the rock steady British Genl. Roy Urquhart (Connery), the no-nonsense cigar-chomping Col. Stout (Gould) and the cool and collected Sgt. Dohun (Caan) – who risks court-martial to honor a promise to keep his severely wounded lieutenant alive.
