“Male and Female He Created Them: Genesis 1-3 and the Meaning of the Sexes” Lecture by Dr. Alastair Roberts


About the Lecture

Dr. Alastair Roberts argues for an understanding of male and female vocation within creation that mirrored the structure of God’s own creative work of first “forming” and then “filling” his world. In the Q&A, he particularly draws attention to the changed social and economic conditions of modernity which have rendered formerly intelligible distinctions of gender roles increasingly difficult to understand and apply.
