Redeeming Gender

Adrian Thatcher

  • Demonstrates the influence of premodern theories of sex and gender on Christian faith and practice past and present
  • Describes what happened in our social, intellectual and theological history, which leaves us thinking that there are two sexes
  • Exposes the reliance of much Church and theological teaching about sex and gender either on biblical proof texts or on the nomenclature of late modernity, rather than on considerations of Theology and Christology
  • Indicates how Theology and Christology, in the area of gender, envisions the redemption of human relationships.
