Christmas money to spend? Here’s a new book from CPH that might grab your attention: Ethics of Sex: From Taboo to Delight. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’d be happy to post a review of it if any of you get a chance to look it over and read it.
Here is a CPH page for it with additional information.
There are ten essays and essay topics include:
- Male and female sex differences
- Sex education
I’ll go ahead and list the essays and authors, as that’s presumably pretty indicative.
Introduction: Taboo or Delight? Sexual Prohibition and Christian Identity
One. Male and Female Sex Differences by Cynthia Lumley
Two. What is Marriage? by Christopher Wright Mitchell
Three. Polygamy and its Contemporary Variations in Biblical Perspective by David Kind
Four. Contraception: An Embryo’s Point of View by Donna Harrison
Five. Pastoral Considerations of Contraception by Richard Stuckwisch
Six. Christian Sex Education: The Great Cover-Up by Matthew Ruegger
Seven. Self-Pollution: Its Definition and Cure by Benjamin Mayes
Eight. A Biblical Response to Homosexuality by Tom Eckstein
Nine. Transgender Identity in Light of Biblical Identity by Robert Weise
Ten. From Taboo to Delight: The Body, Sex, and Love in View of Creation and Eschatology by Gifford Grobein
As far as I can tell, it would be a very good thing if Christians were better equipped, mentally and factually, to discuss sex as a positive gift from God. So, may this book help that cause by stirring up thoughts and conversations.
