People of Passion deals with what Christians are saying now , and have said in the past, about sex. It provides a basic theological resource for those who want to explore issues to do with sex and sexuality from a Christian point of view but feel they need to acquire a broader, more informal perspective on the historical background and contemporary developments. First, it enables clergy, ministers and priests to deal with pastoral situations related to sexuality. Second, with Christianity and sexuality appearing regularly on the curriculum in universities, colleges, seminaries and schools throughout the world, it provides an indispensable, easy-to-read guidebook mapping out the terrain and sketching the contours of current controversies. Third, it is an authoritative source for professional people outside the churches who need to keep in touch with Christian teaching about sex and sexuality.
