Both gender and spirituality are incredibly complex realities, difficult to define yet reaching to the core of human and Christian life. This essay articulates multiple layers and aspects of the meaning of gender within the overarching framework of the Christian experience of God. A concluding section sketches implications of such exploration for the study of spirituality.

Lisa Dahill "There’s Some Contradiction Here: Gender and the Relation of Above and Below in Bonhoeffer" In Interpreting Bonhoeffer: Essays on Method and Approaches. eds. Green, Clifford J., and Guy C. Carter. Minneapolis, MN: Fortress Press

Explores Bonhoeffer’s views on gender — a shadow side of his thinking — both as his theology shifts under Hitler and in glimpses of potential breakthroughs in the conspiracy/prison period. Its use of literary genre analysis provides a lens for retrieving a more life-giving Bonhoefferian view of gender.
