Fully alive

Fully Alive, by Dr. Larry Crabb. In this book Dr. Crabb looks at the roles between woman and men, what did God create each of them to be? How does God define a man and a woman? Dr. Crab does an intense search through the Bible to teach us what it is that God says our roles are and how we can best fulfill them. Each of the sexes have been created uniquely with unique purposes. Each of us shows the heart of God and are no vital to revealing who God is. A woman in her femininity leads others to Christ, just as a man in his masculinity leads people to Christ. God has created us different with a purpose that all leads back to Him. 
     Initially I as really excited to read this book. We see so many books come out on marriage roles, telling woman that her responsibility is to listen to her husband. So when I saw this book I flipped through and had high hopes that it wasn't going to be one of those books. unfortunately I was disappointed when in the end it turned out to be the same message that many other books have tried to convey. I didn't find anything new that hasn't been said many times before. I was also disappointed that it seemed that the author only looked at one possible way that scripture could be interpreted without looking at how there are many arguments on the interpretation of the scriptures. I also found his book hard to follow as it took a while for him to just come right out and state what he actually believed and was saying.
