This much-needed volume draws on a wide range of resources and brings together a collection of leading scholars in the field to examine debates about theology and sexuality. Material is drawn from a variety of ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary texts to provide readers with a broad perspective on the issues discussed. Theology and Sexuality takes on one of the most controversial contemporary theological issues, providing new insights into Christian arguments about the body.
Discussions cover homosexuality, the meaning and perception of the body in community, and the fittingness of the Christian tradition for marriage-like homosexual relationships. The book includes work from theologians and ethicists on both sides of the theology and sexuality debate, organizing selections under theological rubrics such as Christology, Trinity, anthropology, and church. An introductory essay provides a useful overview of the debate and explains the relevance of the selected readings.
