Homosexuality: A New Christian Ethic
In debate about homosexuality two fundamentally incompatible positions continue to be held tenaciously. One asserts that homosexual acts are legitimate, the other that they are not, Homosexuality: A New Christian Ethic presents a psychoanalytic interpretation that shifts the focus of the debate from the legitimacy of sexual expression to the underlying needs. This new and controversial argument is contained in this much needed reassessment and restatement of the traditional Christian distinction between the homosexual condition and its expression in homosexual activity.
