At a time when our culture desperately needs models of sexual wholeness, the church is torn by difficulty and division over issues of gender roles and sexuality. This series provides a cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural Christian perspective developed on a solid biblical and theological basis. The lectures and round-table discussions seek to find a 'place to stand' on such issues as: What roles are appropriate to women and men within church and home? How do Christians deal with issues of sexuality and identity within their calling to marriage or singleness? What distinctive attitudes towards gender and sexuality can help define the Christian community in times of cultural change?
