Nelson offers a thoroughly incarnational – and therefore thoroughly Christian – theology that takes body and sexuality seriously. He addresses body and sexuality as a locus of divine revelation and human growth that seeks to overcome dualism of soul and body, and of spirit and matter. In the process, he rethinks sexual sin and evaluates several issues such as the meanings of embodied life, reproductive choices, and AIDS. He concludes with two sermons thanking God for homosexuals (who have helped Nelson address his own homophobia) and exploring where Christ is embodied today.
