Description

This is a Christian Thought and Culture Lecture. The modern (and 'post-modern') invention of 'sex' as a thing apart from either covenant or procreation has led to its commodification, with disastrous social and cultural effects. Godly sexuality is one of the greatest challenges for contemporary Christians.
