The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood published seven articles as part of a symposium marking the one-year anniversary of the Nashville Statement, which was released on August 25, 2017.
The Nashville Statement is an evangelical coalition statement on biblical sexuality that came out of a meeting of scholars, pastors, and other leaders at the national conference of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission in Nashville last year. The statement, comprised of 14 affirmations and denials, was released “in the hope of serving Christ’s church,” according to the statement’s preamble.
The symposium featured articles by seven of the original signatories: Albert Mohler, Russell Moore, Rosaria Butterfield, Andrew Walker, Ligon Duncan, Christopher Yuan, and Denny Burk. Links to their articles can be found below.

This new curriculum is aimed at Christians who are facing challenging questions with the rise of LGBT ideology on topics like homosexuality, transgenderism, gender dysphoria, intersex conditions, preferred pronouns, and more. The study is broken down into eight chapters that guide readers through the Bible’s teaching on gender, sexuality, and marriage. Male & Female He Created Them gives Christians with a biblical foundation that starts in Genesis 1 and 2 with God’s good design in making mankind male and female in His image.
Male & Female He Created Them: A Study on Gender, Sexuality, & Marriage can be purchased online at Christian Book, Christian Focus, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
