Especially suitable for: Theological educators and Those who are undecided about the homosexuality issue

The Bible, the Church and Homosexuality is intended to reach those who believe that the issues in human sexuality involve a straight choice between faithfulness to Scripture or conforming to liberal conscience, and that Scripture must prevail even if their heart and experience tug them in a different direction. The collection explores a variety of fundamental Christian themes and shows that a change in the Church’s approach to homosexuality would be both consistent with the Church’s understanding of Scripture and with the Church’s traditional ways of working with doctrine. The contributors include Marilyn McCord Adams, Robert Merrihew Adams, John Drury, Christopher Rowland, Jane Shaw and Margaret Bedggood.
