Theology and Sexuality: Classic and Contemporary Readings [2002]

£24.99

Product description

Paperback. Published in 2002 by Blackwell, in the Blackwell Readings in Modern Theology series.

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 Reader includes work from theologians and ethicists on both sides of the theology and sexuality debate, avoiding the tired conservative-liberal impasse by organising selections under theological rubrics like christology, trinity, anthropology, and church. An introductory essay provides a useful overview of the debate and explains the relevance of the selected readings. Both classical and contemporary resources are represented within this volume. Contemporary contributors include theologians, historians, and philosophers, such as Marilyn Adams, Stanley Hauerwas, Mark Jordan, Andrew Sullivan, and Rowan Williams, making it the definitive Reader in this field. Students of all the humanities can benefit from better understanding how Christians relate such central issues as Christ, Trinity, and humanity to contemporary debates about sexuality, marriage, and homosexuality. As a result, this volume will be an invaluable resource.

Includes a scripture and a subject index. Notes & source references at the end of each chapter.

In very good condition. Clean with a firm binding. Light marks to the cover.
