Description

This book is about sexual morality, the Christian Church, and moral argument in late modernity. Arguing about Sex offers a critical evaluation of the intellectual and cultural contexts in which the practical moral discourse of institutions takes place. After analyzing the challenges and possibilities of the Christian moral rhetoric of sex, the book builds a constructive ethical argument about sexual morality in a Christian context. The book is intended for audiences who are interested in and articulate about issues of sexual morality. Students in university and seminary courses in religion and ethics will find this book helpful as will moral theorists interested in examining new relations between ethical norms and moral rules.

Review quote

"The author achieves a synthesis that is rare and difficult. By shifting the initial focus away from narrowly envisioned discussions of sexual morality to its larger, cultural, ecclesial or communal, and historical contexts, the author does great service in articulating a very 'rich' praxis appropriate to the cultural-spiritual life of many Christians today. And many non-Christians would find his work instructive for their own thinking and practice." -- Robert M. Garvin, State University of New York at Albany
