Today’s release of the Spring 2022 issue of Eikon: A Journal for Biblical Anthropology marks the beginning of its fourth year in publication. The topic for this seventh issue of Eikon is the family. While providing cultural analysis and historical perspective, we hope that this issue brings renewed appreciation for the most basic institution of civilization and God’s instrument of human flourishing — the family. Like all past issues, the Spring 2022 Eikon is available for free in digital format at our website. Print copies are also available for purchase.

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.
