The Battle Over Sexual Difference

In the modern era certain ideologies have appeared with growing rancor that threaten the truth and meaning of human sexuality. Gender ideology is one of the greatest moral errors of our times. It is essentially the mistaken notion that gender is not necessarily connected to the sex of the body, but is a personal construct. The Church in her wisdom has stood up to stem the tide of this harmful new attack.

In this book, Dr. Grabowski lays out where gender ideology comes from and identifies its sources--the poisonous currents of modern secularism, the chaos of the sexual revolution, and the ever-expanding reach of technology. In the end, Unraveling Gender shows that what may seem like a new fad is actually the most recent manifestation of one of the oldest heresies in the Church's history, one which is best refuted by the enduring beauty and clarity of her teaching about the body and the gift of sexuality.

Drawing upon Scripture and Church teaching, this timely book equips parents, religious educators, and clergy with the information they need to confront this dangerous ideology with clarity, confidence, and charity. As gender ideology continues to spread its errors, infecting our culture like a deadly virus, this book is a must-read for every Catholic.

Editorial Reviews

John Grabowski is Ordinary Professor of Moral Theology/Ethics at the Catholic University of America. He has authored or coauthored seven books and many scholarly and popular articles. He has served three times as a theological advisor to the USCCB. In 2009 Pope Benedict XVI appointed his wife and him to the Pontifical Council for the Family. In 2015, he was appointed by Pope Francis to serve as an expert at the 2015 Synod on Family.

"In a book well worth reading, John Grabowski's Unraveling Gender documents how the cultural confusion of separating sex and gender leads to ancient gnostic dualism, separating the human spirit from the body. He presents well the loving pastoral steps needed to uphold the mystery and genius of both sexes and the gift of a communion of persons grounded in faithful and complementary love."
+Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz, DD Archbishop of Louisville

"This volume by Dr. Grabowski merits wide circulation. With theological clarity, he brings to light the heretical danger inherent in gender ideology in order to help the Church address with pastoral charity those who hold or have been harmed by it. I am confident that bishops, priests, and pastoral ministers everywhere will welcome this much needed resource with deep gratitude."
+Most Reverend Richard W. Smith Archbishop of Edmonton

"This book is necessary reading right now--and I cannot think of anyone more qualified to write it. With clarity and charity Dr. Grabowski carries forward a discussion of gender ideology that is too often impeded by confusion and rancor. He does this with the professional expertise and faithful judgment of an outstanding moral theologian who has been teaching for thirty years and has faced the hardest questions. This is accessible and timely writing by a scholar of the highest caliber, indeed, one of the best moral theologians of our time. Highly recommended."
Dr. Scott Hahn, Chair of Biblical Theology and the New Evangelization at Franciscan University of Steubenville

"Professor John Grabowski has been thinking about the question of gender identity long before it was 'cool' under the more legitimate topic of 'sexual differences.' The backbone of this book is his doctoral dissertation written decades ago; he has put the deep thinking and research he did at the time in service of helping us understand how gender 'identity, ' or what I would call gender 'madness, ' has taken over our culture. Dedicated to 'our grandchildren, ' this book passes deep theological and philosophical wisdom--about fundamental matters--that is in danger of being lost."
Dr. Janet E. Smith, moral theologian
