Exploring where sex, God and religion meet, this book asks whether there is a clear teaching in the Church and the Bible about how we should behave sexually. It also considers whether these are matters over which the modern church is out of touch and has no business ruling on.
Popular introduction to moral arguments surrounding the subject of sex written in a clear and readable style. Peter Vardy tackles the challenging issues of sexual ethics in today's society, tracing the history of modern thinking from biblical sources and church history. He explains the ethical framework from which people take their views and looks at subjects such as sex and the place of marriage, homosexualtiy, masturbation, contraception and rape. 'Peter Vardy has written an outstanding introduction to the whole realm of human sexuality. It is clear, accurate, theologically informed, historically sensitive, compassionate, open and committed. Whether Christian or non-Christian, this is absolutely essential reading.' Professor Ian Markham, Liverpool Hope University
