Satisfying Yourself: Response #2 to Timothy Keller

Brad’s second (and hopefully final) response to Timothy Keller. Brad discusses Keller’s reductionist view of modern conceptions of selfhood; the problematic approach he takes to criticisms that his sexual ethic erases queer people–and creates the context for violence against them; and the ways Keller uses academic and theoretical sources (Taylor, Asad, Foucault) to cover over what are classic evangelical maneuvers: reduce sexual identity to choice, label those who don’t fit the heterosexual fold as deviant, and blame them for it by tracing their path to sinful desire.
