Biblical Ethics & Homosexuality: Listening to Scripture

Capa

Westminster John Knox Press, 1 de jan. de 1996 - 162 páginas

What are the most important texts for modern Christians to read in order to arrive at responsible decisions regarding the ethics of human sexual behavior? How should those texts be translated for today's reader? How should the Bible be used in this enterprise? Contributors to this book, all notable biblical scholars, confront these questions as they deal with issues surrounding the ethics of sexual behavior, in general, and the divisive issue of gay/lesbian ordination, in particular. They provide an amazing amount of information about biblical ideas of sexuality as they put forth a deeper understanding of the Bible, its intentions, and its variety.
