My book End of Story? Same-Sex Relationships and the Narratives of Evangelical Mission (2019) grew out of many conversations in a missional context about the problems and opportunities created by the widespread legalisation of same-sex marriage. In seems to me that the issue provides us with a powerful lens for reviewing the nature of Paul’s mission and for reimagining the function of the church particularly in the post-Christian West. This podcast looks at Paul’s critique of a Greek culture distinguished by the prominence given to certain forms of homosexual activity (Acts 17:16-34; Rom. 1:18-32), and considers the implications of the fact that this critique belonged to a story that ended long ago.
