Theology of the Sexes
This course on Theology of the Sexes was taught by Dr.Alastair Roberts and Peter Leithart
for our Easter term in 2018.
From the course recap, by Peter Leithart:
"The 2018 Theopolis Easter term course on the theology of the sexes was a resounding success.
Visiting instructor Dr.Alastair Roberts(PhD, Durham) laid out a rich biblical theology of sexuality, before addressing a variety of philosophical, political, and ethical issues.
Roberts stressed that our questions about sex and gender, as much as our answers, are distorted by the assumptions of modern technological society.It’ s a mistake to reduce the theology of the sexes to a flat, atemporal discussion of “roles and rules.”
Christians need a deep, typological grasp of Scripture in order to grapple faithfully with our cultural pathologies.
Positively, Roberts emphasized that manhood and womanhood are framed by the world and our calling in it. Men and women are co - creators, each called in a distinctive way to contribute to the fulfillment of God’ s creation mandate to fill, subdue, and rule the creation."
This course contains 17 lectures and two Q & A sessions.
