Product Description


Many of the critiques of God, Sex, and Genderoffered in this review emerge from Thatcher s own lines of interrogation. In this and other ways, the book succeeds in drawing readers into what is truly an exhilarating mode of reflection. As such, it offers a major contribution towards theological depth and creativity in this important set of discourses, renewing the often reflexive ethics of sex and gender through witness to the Word become flesh.   (Studies in Christian Ethics, 16 April 2014)

Written as a text for post–secondary courses, this book aims to provide a comprehensive and consistent theological understanding of sexuality and gender, which is broad, contemporary, undogmatic, questioning, inclusive, and relevant to readers interests, needs, and experience (xi).   (Studies in Religion, 1 September 2013)

"Adrian Thatcher′s new book will be a rich resource for those studying and teaching sex, gender and sexuality in theological perspective ... The volume is a valuable one, which I hope will prompt readers to go and explore Thatcher′s own extensive work form the past, as well as the broader context of theological scholarship on sexuality, gender and marriage within which it sits." (Theology, 1 January 2012)

""Here is a clear and coherent account of where we are in terms of Christian teaching and practice about sex and gender, and it should appeal to students and general readers alike." (Church Times, 26 August 2011)

"A theologian offers a theology of both sexuality and gender, discussing such topics as homosexuality and same–sex unions." (Publishers Weekly, 8 March 2011)


"Adrian Thatcher brings an unparalleled knowledge and understanding to the writing of this book. He knows what readers – both beginners and seasoned want and need in an introductory text. The author is not only sensible and comprehensive, but also critical and challenging, as well as discerning and wise, and above all accessible. His book provides a truly excellent introduction to the profound and often troubling questions raised by the gender and intimacies of our bodies in relationship to one another and to God."
Gerard Loughlin, Durham University

"Two things shine through this book: Adrian Thatcher′s scholarship and his humanity. This book will help readers understand how and why centuries of Christian teaching on sex and gender developed as it did, and offers a wealth of resources for meeting the challenges of today."
Elaine Graham, University of Chester

very thorough and clear; he explains what he is going to say before he says it, which I enjoyed, and I was easily able to find the right passage that I needed. Clear, but never patronising or over-complicated (very little technical jargon and few long words)
