Our culture wrestles with gender identity and gender dysphoria in many ways. Today, we talked with author Katie J. McCoy, who has recently written a book, To Be a Woman, addressing these issues. Katie shared why this is an important topic for us all to read and learn about right now, as well as how we can do a better job of both loving those who are struggling and holding true to God’s Word. Listen in to our conversation to learn more.
Katie McCoy serves as director of women’s ministry at Texas Baptists. She holds a PhD in Systematic Theology from Southwestern Seminary (Texas), where she served on faculty for five years. Katie’s research includes the patterns of justice for women in Old Testament laws as well as the intersection of theology, gender, and women’s studies. She is a frequent speaker and writer on women’s and gender issues. Her book, To Be a Woman: The Confusion Over Female Identity and How Christians Can Respond, comes out in June 2023. Katie loves to bake (or just make a mess in the kitchen) and the Container Store is her “happy place.”
