Marriage, Sex & Family in Historical Perspective

Trace the major historical shifts in cultural understandings of marriage, male and female sexuality, and the socio-political role of the family, from the early church to the present day. Explore the ways in which Christian belief and practice have shaped these understandings. Develop a historical framework that provides insight into present-day debates surrounding gender identity and sexual practice. Finally, build a repertoire of language for missional engagement with these themes in the post-modern context.
