This long-awaited book by one of American Christianity's foremost ethicists proposes a framework for sexual ethics whereby justice is the criterion for all loving, including love that is related to sexual activity and relationships. It begins with historical and cross-cultural explorations, then addresses the large questions of embodiment, gender, and sexuality, and finally delineates the justice framework for sexual ethics. Though" Just Love"'s particular focus is Christian sexual ethics, Farley's framework is broad enough to have relevance for multiple traditions. Also covered are specific issues in sexual ethics, including same-sex relationships, marriage and family, divorce and second marriage, celibacy, and sex and its negativities.

“The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith expresses profound regret that a member of an Institute of Consecrated Life, Sr. Margaret A. Farley, R.S.M., affirms positions that are in direct contradiction with Catholic teaching in the field of sexual morality,” says the notification, issued in Rome on June 4.

This book should not be read by anyone seeking moral or spiritual guidance in the area of human sexuality. You should not be mislead into believing that this is based on the true teachings of the Catholic Church just because it was written by a rogue nun. On the contrary, the author of this book causes "grave harm" to the faithful and the Catholic Church officially centured this book because it is "in direct contradiction with Catholic teaching in the field of sexual morality." I recommend Christopher West's Theology of the Body for Beginners for those of you looking for good solid teachings on human sexuality instead of this book that justifies and even encourages immoral behavior.

I want to read this mostly because the Catholic church condemns it. Being told not to do something makes you want to do it even more. Read full review
