'...Christians repudiate the entire infrastructure of self-construction as too emaciated and deficient to bear the weight of being human. Characteristics such as gender, race, nationality and sexuality are important, but we reject the modern practice of elevating these part identities into whole identities. Nothing less than the whole glory of the restored image of God in humankind will do. That is our identity. That is who we are.'
Glynn Harrison, A Better Story, p.130.
