#997 – Singleness, the “Gift of Celibacy,” and Healthy Complementarianism: Dr. Dani Treweek
What does it mean to have the gift of celibacy (or singleness)? Does it mean that you don’t desire sex or marriage? Or that you’ve been given an extra booster shot of the Holy Spirit that gives you radical immunity to sexual temptation (or at least prevents you from serious spiriutal hospitalization)? What actually was Paul talking about when he said that “it’s better to marry than to burn?” (1 Cor 7:7-8).
Dr. Dani Treweek is both single and a theological expert in singleness, having recently completed her Ph.D. on a theology of singleness and who’s publishing a book titled “The Meaning of Singleness” (IVP 2023). Dani is an ordained minister, theologian, speaker, writer, adn the founder of “Single Minded,” an evangelical Christian initiative which seeks to resource a positive, biblical conversation about singleness within the Christian life and community.
