On Sex and Sexuality: Male and Female Created He Them

The finest treatment of the theological meaning of sex and sexuality, and the dreadful effects of the Fall on our perceptions of that reality can be found in Chapter 15 of Emil Brunner’s ‘Man in Revolt‘ (though a better translation of the German title would be ‘Man in Contradiction’).

In his chapter on the subject of what it means to be a sexual being, Brunner brilliantly demonstrates the significance of sexual longing and the estrangement which attends it.  You could do no better if you want to understand the topic from the point of view of Christian theology, I assure you, than to read it.
