God intended men and women to live and work together in partnership and in harmony.
This exhilarating book explores what that means in real terms.
In the UK - where only a fifth of MPs are female; where women are paid less than men and one in four will experience violence from their partner; where men comprise the vast majority of the prison population and boys are underperforming at school - the biblical vision of women and men being truly equal is needed more than ever.
Equality, Jenny Baker suggests, is intrinsically related to the desire to see people flourish.
Jesus was not averse to challenging cultural stereotypes in his encounters with others.
His model of liberating relationships can be a great encouragement to us, as we seek to find the generosity of spirit we need to enable those we love to thrive and, ultimately, to reflect more fully the image of God.
