Carl is flying solo as host for today's podcast and—after a few moments of linguistic snobbery—finds time in his "shed-jule" to interview Abigail Favale. She's a professor at the University of Notre Dame and author of The Genesis of Gender: A Christian Theory. Dr. Favale explains that current "gender theory" finds its roots in feminist and postmodern thought, and is now reshaping language, law—perhaps even our own self-perceptions. Today's guest dares to define such words as "woman" and "man" and reminds us that biblical paradigms should lead Christians in how to live beyond cultural notions of gender identity.
Ignatius Press provided three giveaway copies of Abigail's book, The Genesis of Gender. Our winners were Jason P. from Hudson, OH, Michael H. from Monterey, CA, and Jeffrey S. from Cary, NC. Congratulations!
