Description
Summary:The field of sexual ethics is widely studied in graduate school religion programs and seminaries, but lacks a definitive resource for the classroom. This teacher-friendly anthology aims to fill that gap. Featuring nine of the most important essays on the subject, all of which have appeared in the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics or its predecessor, the Annual of the Society of Christian Ethics, this collection covers a wide range of topics: same-sex marriage, sexual minorities and biblical interpretation, sex and power, sexual harassment and sexual abuse, HIV/AIDS and prevention strategy, the military and masculinities, mobile porn and sexting, human trafficking, moral discernment, and more. Contributors represent a broad range of theological traditions, and draw on scriptural texts as well as such disciplines as philosophy and sociology and psychology and the life sciences. Each chapter includes reflection questions and suggestions for further reading, and the book includes an index
