B 77 Fairer Sex: Spiritual Readings of Four Old Testament Passages about Men and Women (2015)


The church is often accused of being obsessed with sex—and contemporary discussion is often contentious and has a very narrow focus.

But Scripture has a lot more to say about sex, love and gender relations. In this fascinating and engaging study, we encounter a spiritual reading of some well-known episodes in the Old Testament which have surprising and striking relevance to the wider questions we face today.
