Help for Five Aspects of Woman Leaders

How to start a Five Aspects class:

  • Order the  Five Aspects of Woman Leader’s Set, which includes the Five Aspects of Woman Volume OneVolume Two and the Leader’s Manual. You can order at our Store on this site as a set or individually.
  • Go through the course yourself, allowing six months to complete the study.
  • If you would like to conduct a Five Aspects class in your church, mission group, Bible study group, or any other organized body of believers, ask the leaders of the group to approve the course. It is better not to begin, than to begin and reap confusion or undermine your leadership.

A Five Aspects discussion leader is the key to a successful study. She should:

  • Have a thorough grasp of the Biblical and theological content of Five Aspects of Woman.
  • Love the truth of this course, having found it profoundly and personally helpful.
  • Love the women who will be in her study.
  • Pray consistently for her class as a whole and her students individually.

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.
