Product Description

Highly esteemed author C.S. Lewis has been celebrated as well as criticized for his views on men's and women's gender roles. While his early writings reflect a stern complimentarian and hierarchical order between the sexes, his later essays reveal a sizeable shift in this thinking. A Sword Between the Sexes traces the path by which Lewis moved from the former to the latter position, and engages readers by reflecting further upon the continuing debate over gender relations, egalitarianism, and complementarianism. A welcome addition to the bookshelf of any Lewis fan unfamiliar with his views on gender relations.

Publisher's Description

What did C. S. Lewis really think about gender roles? In this book, a widely recognized expert on male and female roles evaluates Lewis's understanding and presentation of gender, revealing that he ended his life thinking differently about gender than many of his followers assume. This is the first book to provide a close examination of Lewis's thought on gender and what it means for today. It addresses the tension between faith and science and offers insight into the continuing debate over gender relations, egalitarianism, and complementarianism. The book will appeal to readers of C. S. Lewis and those who are interested in gender issues.
