“In facing disillusionment, we see our lives were far more of a hustle than we realized. And it just doesn’t matter. All that is human and vulnerable becomes valuable again and is the place where our spines strengthen, hope is restored, and love is trained.”

The Sexual Reformation

Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

Why Can’t we Be Friends?

“The apostle Paul never called his closest associates “friends” and Aimee Byrd has taken his insight they were siblings, brothers and sisters in Christ — and turned friendship between males and females in the church into a sacred-siblings calling into love, sanctification and celebration. Too many today guard the heart with rules but fear or reputation or gross misunderstandings of who we are, instead of theology, motivate the teaching. In Why Can’t We Be Friends? we are ushered into the deep spaces of Christian theology in a way that it rearranges our relationships. If in the kingdom we will be siblings, it’s time we accepted our future for our present. The best book I have seen on this subject.”

–Scot McKnight

“This is a book that will grow your soul. In the midst of albeit important debates about the meaning of masculinity, femininity, authority, and submission, Aimee invites us to rise above and listen—listen to Jesus singing over us, pointing us to redemption centered on himself. Instead of viewing each other as rivals for power, let’s join in the song—the Song of Songs—and embrace each other as gifts. May that song of reformation lead to our dance of celebration!”

Sheila Wray Gregoire

“Aimee Byrd beautifully shows us the need for nothing less than a reformation in how the church understands and discusses our bodies that more fully resonates with the biblical vision. Byrd powerfully calls us to discover a deeper song whereby our embodiment as male and female resonates with the great marriage of heaven and earth made possible through the incarnation and the marriage supper of the lamb.”

I kind of stumbled into the gig of an author as I found a lack of theological depth in women’s studies and resources, writing out of the loneliness of a thinking woman in the church. Much of my writing speaks to why it matters to know the true God and what hinders our growth in this in our own church culture. It has gotten me into a good bit of trouble.
