Catholic Connection – August 3, 2022 – Hour 2

Dr. Abigail Favale tells us about her new book, “The Genesis of Gender: A Christian Theory.” Joan Lewis has the latest news concerning Pope Francis and our Catholic Church.

Segment 1 – Intro and News

Segment 2 & 3 – The Genesis of Gender: A Christian Theory
“With substance, clarity, and compassion, Favale teases out the hidden assumptions of the gender paradigm and exposes its effects. Yet this book is not merely an exposé—it is also a powerful, moving articulation of a Christian understanding of reality: a holistic paradigm that proclaims the dignity of the body, the sacramental meaning of sexual difference, and the interconnectedness of all creation.”

Abigail Favale, Ph.D., is a writer and professor in the McGrath Institute for Church Life at the University of Notre Dame. A Catholic convert with an academic background in gender studies, Abigail writes and speaks regularly on topics related to women and gender from a Catholic perspective.
