What makes a man masculine? A woman feminine? Did God design the two genders so differently? If so, why? The answers to these questions will free women and men to gladly embrace all that it means to be fully alive as gendered bearers of God's image who can profoundly impact others for good by the way they relate. Author and psychologist Dr. Larry Crabb presents a biblically grounded understanding of gender uniqueness. His illustration of a bridge of connection shows how the two genders can relationally come together in God-revealing harmony as they celebrate their God-designed uniqueness. Readers will discover that God created male and female to relate in gender-specific ways to make a difference in others by displaying God's relational character. Crabb clearly shows men and women what it means to live fully alive as feminine women and masculine men.

From the Back Cover:

How the message of Fully Alive is helping people all over the world . . .

"I had just come out of an abusive thirty-year marriage when I heard Larry teach on masculinity and femininity. The Lord used that teaching to begin the restoration process of my shattered soul and identity of who God created me to be."--Kerry F., Arizona, single/counselor

"Larry's teaching on gender has impacted my personal life, my marriage, and my leadership of the men's ministry at my church."--Charles B., Illinois, husband/father/pastor

"His gender message is biblically based and easy to understand. It has revolutionized the way we relate to each other. We believe this book is vital for those desiring authentic marital intimacy."--Ryan and Heather C., Virginia, husband/pastoral counselor and wife/mentor

"Seeing the potential in giving and receiving, I realize it is a waste of time to compete. Both men and women will benefit greatly by honoring their calling, resulting in freedom and joy."--Tom N., Norway, husband/father/retired

"Dr. Crabb's teaching on gender taught me a new way of relating to my wife. There is a drastic shift in my soul. . . . This new way has breathed life into our marriage."--John F., North Carolina, husband/father/pastor

"I experienced a distinct paradigm shift in my counseling upon learning about how gender relates to being created in God's image. Now there is an increasing desire to live out His strength in being the man He created me to be."--David W., Texas, husband/father/counseling pastor

From the Inside Flap:

Discover who you were truly meant to be and how you were truly meant to live.
