Missio Alliance Essential Reading List of 20152015 Readers' Choice Award WinnerOne of Seedbed's 10 Notable Books from 2015Nothing has exposed the gap between the church and the broader society quite like the cultural argument over sexuality. Relationships, identities, orientations and even seemingly straightforward concepts such as gender have cut battle lines between the church and the world. In the fog of war and the cloud of conflict, it's increasingly hard to see our way clearly.There is hope, however. Debra Hirsch has seen it firsthand--in meaningful lifelong relationships with LGBT friends and neighbors, in Christian fellowships and in movements that have held a concern for people created in God's image and a high view of the Bible's teaching on sexuality in constructive tension. When you consider the world from the perspective of God's kingdom mission, it turns out the smoke clears and a redemptive imagination takes root.Discover a holistic, biblical vision of sex and gender that honors God and offers good news to the world.
