This lecture presents a theology of culture in order to explore theology in culture. It explores why gender (an expression of culture) must be understood as both a context in which we read Scripture and a topic we understand through Scripture. Biblical themes are explored as parts of both the culture in which they were spoken, and those in which they are read. We move beyond thinking of anything in Scripture as "just cultural" to understanding everything in Scripture and daily life as properly and profoundly cultural.
The "Christians and culture" question commonly examines how Christians ought to relate to the culture in which they live. Christians also create subcultures of "Christian" images, norms, and roles that shape how males and females think of themselves, their social roles, and their relationships. This presentation will examine images of men, women, and gender roles in Christian advertising and media.
