What is a woman? Although society’s definition of a woman seems to change frequently, the Bible’s depiction of God’s design and plan for women has not altered since He created Eve. The biblical passages relating to the role of women must be the source of our description of a woman.
The headship of man, which began at Eve’s creation from Adam’s rib as his helper, continues after the fall as God called to Adam in the Garden of Eden. The consequences for their sin were both spiritual and physical death. Conflict replaced harmony in their relationship.
God created Eve and designed her with a special purpose. Our privilege as women is not to attempt to change what God has fashioned but to fulfill the blessings He has promised to women. A Delicate Strength will encourage women to identify themselves from Scripture rather than culture.
