Theology of the Sexes Course

A seventeen-lecture course I delivered on the theology of the sexes, with two question and answer sessions, is available for purchase for $9.99 from the Theopolis Institute here.

    Just bought the lecture series and downloaded them. I’m looking forward to listening.

    Alastair, do you happen to have titles for all of the sessions in this series? The MP3 files are devoid of any sort of labeling or properties.

    How much overlap is there between these lectures and your forthcoming book?

    • Many of the same topics are tackled, of course, but my forthcoming book has considerably more depth and breadth. It is really hard to compare, not least because the process of delivering talks and especially the interaction in seminars (not in these recordings, unfortunately) has such a different dynamic to it.

    Purchased – can’t wait to dive in! Thanks for your work on this subject.

    I just found out the publication date for you book Theology of the sexes has been pushed back to 2019. Soo far away! In all seriousness I can’t wait to buy your book – I have it on pre-order at my local Christian bookstore.

    Hi Alastair – thanks for this. I look forward to listening. Did you have a syllabus / course handouts for this course? I’ll get the lectures, but I’d also be interested to see what readings (if any) you had for the class and any other supplemental materials.

    • We had two different sets of students: some who were only attending the lectures and other who were attending lectures and seminars (which added another 10+ hours). Within the seminars we discussed Stephen Clark’s Man and Woman in Christ and several other readings, but you don’t need to read anything to follow the lectures.

    Hi Alastair,

    This morning, I was listening to Lecture 7 on the Book of Proverbs, the pursuit of a wife cf. wisdom, and the culmination in the Proverbs 31 ideal woman, Lady Wisdom, and the Church. And I thought of this clip of Jordan Peterson that I listened to yesterday where he talks about men being motivated by the ideal woman archetype and the eventual need for men to differential actual individual women from the ideal archetype.

    It seems to me that Peterson in his own way is striking at something related to what you were talking about when discussing this stuff in Proverbs. Do you agree or have any comments on what Peterson is saying here?

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    • I think Peterson is fundamentally on the right track here. And it is definitely not unrelated to what is going on in Proverbs, where Lady Wisdom and the wise wife of chapter 31—both manifestations of the ideal feminine in some manner or other—are supposed to drive and motivate the young man.
