Key writers and thinkers offer an informed, considered and constructive guide to a number of central questions, including: • Mike Higton on marriage, gender and Christian doctrine • Charlotte Metheun on what we can learn from the history of marriage • Ben Fulford on thinking about marriage with scripture • Julie Gittoes on the liturgical theology of marriage • John Bradbury on marriage as vocation • Brett Gray on reproduction and the body’s grace • Susannah Cornwall on being faithful to our sexuate bodies • Rachel Muers on developing a contemporary theology of marriage and much more Reflecting a broad theological and eccesiological spectrum within the Christian tradition, Thinking Again About Marriage offers a vital resource for critical thinking and reflective practice.
“This is a very good book. It contains a variety of approaches and themes and it is very well and concisely written. Reading it for the first time helped me to think more critically about some issues concerning the theology of marriage. I know that when I read it again (which I certainly will) there will be more food for thought.” — Sarah Jones
