Sex in the Bible

Full Product Description

What is the Bible's stance on such controversial issues as homosexuality and polygamy, and what does it have to say about sexual behaviours that some would deem sick or criminal? Is sex always wrong if it is not used to create life? Ellens' book answers these and other questions related to the Bible's take on sex. Arguing that our understanding of what the Bible has to say about sex is frequently misguided, Ellens corrects our impressions with a look at the scriptures themselves. He considers what they might have meant to people in the past and reflects on how we understand, or misunderstand, them today. Focusing on early interpretations and contemporary misconceptions, Ellens guides readers through what the Bible actually says, showing how these messages have been interpreted in different contexts and suggesting new ways of reading and translating them for use in our own lives. Readers hoping to reach a better understanding of the Bible's stance toward sexual practices and sexuality in general will find their questions answered here.
