MARK CHANSKI: "WOMANLY DOMINION: More Than A Gentle And Quiet Spirit"

MP3 Available Here

MARK CHANSKI, pastor of Reformed Baptist Church of Holland, MI , will address the theme of his latest book: "WOMANLY DOMINION: More Than A Gentle And Quiet Spirit".

Christian woman - take dominion!

"Play your position!" is a call we may hear a coach yell at a soccer or football game. The meaning is: "Do what you have been assigned to do, and do it well!"

Many Christian women have been told over the years that they must quietly stay under their parasols while their men go out and conquer the world. But is this what the Bible really teaches?

In this sequel to his book "MANLY DOMINION: In A Passive, Purple, Four-Ball World", author and pastor Mark Chanski insists that the Bible tells us a different story. He insists that the Bible teaches a woman to take dominion of her God-assigned role as wife, mother and church helper. No, not in a feminist way, but in a God-glorifying way that speaks volumes of who she is and why God created her.

Women should not think of themselves as victims, says the author, but as victors who conquer the realm that their Lord and Master Jesus Christ has given them.

This book will forever change the way you look at Christian womanhood!


“This book is a very helpful one that, when I first looked at it, I thought a man couldn’t write! But he did!” --- Dr. Jay E. Adams, Dean, Institure For Nouthetic Studies, Esteemed Author of over 120 books, Father of Nouthetic Counseling, Retired Seminary Professor, Local Pastor, Worldwide Lecturer

“Finally–a book that brings together nearly everything God’s Word calls a woman to be–from within herself to her marriage and family, as well as the church and the public square. Chansk’s Womanly Dominion is Biblical Womanhood 101, a biblical, succinct, practical course that shows women how to think God’s thoughts after Him, to align themselves with their holy and awesome calling, and to free themselves from the pressures of worldly thinking about womanhood. Chanski is at times very frank and direct, at other times witty and humorous, and remarkably open and courageous, but he is always biblical and realistic, and knows how to open up the fullness of the woman’s massive calling. If women follow the advice contained in this book, they will be prayerful, joyful, content, fulfilled, and too busy exercising biblical dominion in every sphere of life to join the female murmurers and feminists of the twenty-first century!” --- Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President and Professor of Systematic Theology and Homiletics, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, MI

“Today’s woman wants freedom and power. Mark Chanski clearly and colorfully describes how we women can be liberated from feminist ideas, to exercise womanly dominion, as outlined in Scripture by the very God who designed us. We have dominion in performing our role as a wife, in nurturing our children, in managing our home, and in reaching out to others. Singles have dominion in work and in society. Our greatest privilege is to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, who humbly washed others’ feet. He said, “Whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.” In the milieu of following God’s will, we can be content, fulfilled, and honored. Womanly Dominion is a must read for women.” --- Mary Beeke, Wife of Dr. Joel Beeke, Author of The Law of Kindness

“Too many Christians, men and women, have bought into secular and even pagan notions of godly womanhood. Godly womanhood is not simply having the right ideas, or even simply the right doctrine. We do not need a generation of evangelical Stepford Wives, nor do we need a generation of Proverbs 31 Ann Coulters. Instead, the Scripture calls us to Christ-honoring heroic women with a gentle and quiet Spirit that is beautiful in the sight of the Lord. Mark Chanski calls us to this vision with grace, clarity, and conviction. This book will help women to grow in Christ. It will also help older women to mentor younger women. And it will help parents to raise daughters of dominion.” --- Dr. Russell D. Moore, Vice-President and Dean, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY

“Womanly Dominion is biblical, practical and compelling. Mark Chanski provides the church with a presentation of biblical womanhood that has the rare combination of winsomeness and theological clarity. If you care about the home and church you need to read this book.” --- Randy L. Stinson, Ph.D., Dean, School of Leadership and Church Ministry, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY, President, Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

“This is a fine book that lifts Christian women to their queenly province–which reigns far above the mythical sovereignties of feminism. Read this book and be liberated! We highly recommend it.” --- Kent and Barbara Hughes, Retired Pastor of College Church, Wheaton, IL; Authors of Disciplines of a Godly Man and Disciplines of a Godly Woman
