Sex and the iWorld
Full Product Description
With an inclusive perspective and a cordial openness to responses from all points of view, Dale Kuehne contrasts the long-established "tWorld," in which traditional morality reigned, with the present-day "iWorld," in which the immediate desires of the individual have been deemed paramount. He maintains that both fail to deliver the benefits of the proposed "rWorld," in which a larger web of healthy and nourishing social relationships provides the most personally fulfilling context for sexuality and relational well-being.
Dale Kuehne surveys popular conclusions about gender and human sexuality in Sex and the iWorld, which is drawn from both the natural and social sciences. He then addresses how postmodernity impacts social policy and issues such as sexual orientation, redefinition of the family, and more. Finally, he retells the story of Christianity through the lens of a relational theology, highlighting its implications for marriage, family, civil partnerships, friendship, and sexual boundaries. In concluding, he maintains that satisfying our lifelong quest for fulfillment centers on relational intimacy.
Sex and the iWorld will be an essential tool for courses on political science, social policy, and Christianity and culture. Most important, Dale Kuehne's book will help academics, students, church leaders, and laity develop a holistic strategy for engaging wider society about sexual ethics and public policy.

An important bookRonald J Sider, president, Evangelicals for Social Action
This is a very important book - clarifying complext issues, jolting us out of complacency, and demanding action. Biblical Christians must confront this book's stark challenge.
Gracious, astute, courageous, authenticJonathan Chaplin, director, Kirby Laing Institute for Christian Ethics, Cambridge
Gracious, astute, courageous, authentic - Dale Kuehne's book offers just the kind of biblically formed ethical wisdom our generation desperately needs if it is to be led out of its current sexual darkness and pain into the light and healing of the Creator-Redeemer, whose own deepest desire is the fulfillment of all our deepest human desires.
