Synopsis:

Exploring one of the most controversial topics in contemporary theology, this scholarly volume reveals what the world's great faiths―East and West―preach about sexuality, with a special emphasis on American religion.


· 12 chapters on sexuality in each of the major religious traditions of the world, including African indigenous traditions, Native American traditions, Judaism, Protestant Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Catholic and Orthodox Christianity as well as topics in contemporary American religion such as feminist, New Age, and neopagan spiritualities

· Chapters written by contributors who are recognized experts in each religion and in the topic of sexuality

· Artwork including photographs of recent events and illustrations of pertinent sacred texts

· An annotated bibliography of print and online resources

Book Description:

Premarital sex and the Bible. Homosexuality and Hinduism. Polygamy and the Koran. Reproductive rights and the Judaic tradition. How do the world's major religions influence the sexual values, attitudes, and practices of their adherents? Sexuality and the World's Religions covers these not-suitable-for-the-dinner-table topics soberly and expertly, with extra chapters on nontraditional American religions and communities.
