Gender: Where Next?

By Christopher Townsend 18 Jun 2018

The issue of ‘gender identity’ has risen to prominence with remarkable speed in recent years and demands our attention.

Christopher Townsend gives a brief survey of different understandings of gender, before examining, distinguishing and contrasting the medical condition gender dysphoria and aspects of transgender ideology. This sets the scene for biblical reflections on the body, sex and gender in the light of the searching questions posed by the transgender phenomenon. 

This talk is based on Christopher Townsend's Cambridge Paper, available here.
