Apologetics and Gender and Identity Confusion

Unless you have been living under a rock, we have seen over the last few years the topic of the gay marriage and now the gender identity issue has become one of the most talked about issues in our culture today. We have many people that seem to finding their identity in their sexuality or gender. While I don’t want to spend alot of time going over all the complexities of these issues, one thing that has been lost is the fact that apologists need to do a better job of discussing why are first identity should be in the fact that we are image bearers of God. Now I know many people don’t think they are image bearers of God because they don’t think there is a God. But the reality is that humans have a major identity crisis. One book that is worth reading is The Liberating Image: The Imago Dei in Genesis 1 by J. Richard Middleton. Another one is The Recalcitrant Imago Dei (Veritas) by J.P. Moreland.
