  • The 'Making of Biblical Womanhood' was Not Made for This Woman
    14 Dec 2021 • 4 min read • 1 0
    I’ve always been a reader. Indeed, I like to think that I’m fairly good at it! But it’s only been in writing my own book that I’ve had to think in a sustained way about what it is to not just read, bu...
  • On Mars Hill, Christian "Influencers" & Discipleship
    10 Dec 2021 • 3 min read • 2 0
    Like most of the rest of the evangelical world (OK, probably an overstatement), I’ve been listening to Christianity Today’s ‘Rise and Fall of Mars Hill’ podcast. Much of my listening took place on lon...
  • A Plea to 'Side B' Christians
    06 Dec 2021 • 5 min read • 2 10

  • The Self-Made Eunuch, Obviously (?) (Part 2)
    25 Nov 2021 • 15 min read
    Hi readers! This is a significantly revised version of my previous piece on the eunuchs of Mt 19. I decided the original one needed a bit more work. Sorry to subject you to it again, but I think the a...
  • Christian Single, I See You.
    22 Nov 2021 • 2 min read • 3 11
    Christian single, I see you. Yes. You. All of you. In all your unique situations, contexts, complexities, opportunities, griefs and joys, I see you. But in this post, I particularly want to make sure ...
  • The Self-Made Eunuch, Obviously (?) (Part 2)
    15 Nov 2021 • 14 min read
    Ok. We’re going to launch right into it here. Which means if you haven’t already read the first part of our “eunuchs” sub-series, you’ll want to do that now. Things will make much more sense if you do...
  • Introducing the... Eunuchs?! (Part 1)
    01 Nov 2021 • 6 min read
    OK. It’s time to talk about eunuchs. Remember our running example of the contemporary definition of celibacy from Focus on the Family? Singleness is circumstantial […] Celibacy, on the other hand, is ...
  • Debuking the Notion of "Involuntary Celibacy"
    26 Oct 2021 • 8 min read
    We interrupt our regularly programming (i.e., our Mythbusting Celibacy series) for something a little different. A few days ago I tweeted some brief reflections on this transcript of a talk given by P...
  • Reforming the Gift (Part 3)
    26 Oct 2021 • 12 min read
    So, we left our last post in the early AD 400s with St Augustine (probably the most prominent of all early church writes on matters of sexuality, sin and godliness) saying that, in 1 Cor 7:7 Paul teac...
  • Getting Historical About the Gift (Part 2)
    20 Oct 2021 • 16 min read
    In our last post we explored the contemporary (near) consensus that in 1 Cor 7:7 ("I wish that all were as I myself am. But each has his own gift from God, one of one kind and one of another") Paul is...
