Responding to Revisionist Theologies of Sexuality


Theological debate on sexuality and gender has typically been cast in terms of a division between ‘traditionalism’ and ‘revisionism’, where the former is aligned with those identified as ‘evangelical’ and the latter with those aligned to ‘liberalism’. This talk shows that a more nuanced approach is now needed if those who wish to uphold a biblical understanding are to make their case in an effective way. In particular, we seek to demonstrate how classic evangelicals can best answer revisionist approaches that might distinctively be defined as: exegetical, canonical, thematic, therapeutic, illuminist and intradenominational.
