The Biblical Song informing  our network

THE SEXUAL REFORMATION:
Restoring the Dignity and Personhood
of Man and Woman
By Aimee Byrd
Zondervan Reflective. 224 pages. £12.99
ISBN 978 0 310 125 648

Slap bang in the middle of the Bible sits the Song of Songs, which Aimee Byrd describes as ‘a sexual reformation call for the church’.

For Byrd this much-misunderstood book reveals the meta-narrative of Scripture and shows our longing for communion with God and with one another. In The Sexual Reformation, as she unpacks her theology of gender, Byrd returns us gently to the view of rabbis and the early church (quoting both at times, along with a fair amount of Pope John Paul II) that the Song of Songs should be seen as an allegory of love between God and His people – between Christ and the church.
