From the Back Cover:

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 organizing 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.

This volume combines classical and contemporary resources, making it the definitive reader in the field. Classical resources include the Bible, the Liturgy, Augustine, John Paul II, and never before translated selections from Aquinas and Karl Barth. Contemporary contributors include Marilyn Adams, Stanley Hauerwas, Mark Jordan, Andrew Sullivan, and Rowan Williams. This volume will be of particular use to students of systemic theology or moral theology; students studying sexuality of the body in other disciplines; the clergy; and general readers interested in current theological debates.

About the Author:

Eugene F. Rogers is Associate Professor of Philosophical Theology and Chair of the Program in Theology, Ethics and Culture in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville. His previous publications include Thomas Aquinas and Karl Barth (1995) and Sexuality and the Christian Body (Blackwell Publishers, 1999).
