The main thesis of this article is that we find in the Bible three insights that guide godly relationships between women and men. First, the author directs his readers to the mutuality within the triune God. The next insight is that the goal of male-female relationships is to reflect the very character of God. Finally, Grenz focuses on the means to godly relationships, i.e., empowering the other.
In this chapter the author considers two views on the source of the law. One view is confident that humanity is the only source of law and of the knowledge of good and evil. The other view finds a fountain for the good life for ourselves and society if we turn back to God himself. Law is seen as an expression of the character of God. Questions for personal reflection and group discussion follow at the end of the chapter.
