Item Description...
Overview
For some people, the Bible's perspectives on sex may seem too one-dimensional or antiquated to apply to modern-day life. Others may hold up the Bible as the ultimate moral guideline when it comes to sex and human sexuality. A close reading of the Bible reveals that while its rules and lessons about sex and sexuality may not be applicable to all people at all times, this sacred scripture does offer surprising insight into our modern sexual lives. This intriguing guide demystifies the Bible, synthesizing basic historical, theological, literary and linguistic ideas about the Bible's texts with our modern attitudes about sex. Thoughtful new translation and provocative commentary bridge the divide between biblical authority and our present-day views on gender roles, marriage, sexual orientation, virginity, lust and sexual pleasure. Drawing from Hebrew and Christian scripture, it examines the ways that the language of religion and the language of sex intersect. Now you can discover what the Bible says about sex with no previous background in theology or religious history. This SkyLight Illuminations edition offers insightful and engaging commentary that explains the historical context and religious worldviews of those who wrote the Bible as well as the role their perspectives play in current social debates. You will be encouraged to form your own opinion about what the Bible has to say about sex and gain a deeper understanding of your own sexuality.

Put a pistol in your pocket  Jul 29, 2008
If you've been irritated by conservative religious types using bible verses out of context to support their hateful attitudes towards sexual conduct that they don't agree with, you must have this book. It is the definitive source of info showing the bible's discussion of sex in full context, with excellent commentary. You will mow them down when they bash gays, sodomites and others who like sex. Ausgeseischnet!!
 
Excellent and a must read book  Mar 25, 2008

Should Be Called: Author Thinks He is God  Jan 3, 2008
Careless babble from the book:

"When you consult the Bible on culturally and temporally specific practices like polygamy, it just doesn't work."

Cuz u said so. What arrogance that the author thinks they speak for 100+ million baptists and presbyterians and hundreds of millions of catholics.

It then says,

"The Bible should not be the only marriage manual for us today."

Who said it should be? Where does the Bible say, "Thou shalt have no other book explaining anything."? Awful.

It then says,

"Our social customs about meeting, marrying, and having sex, (not always in this order),"

Wow, how deep, did you here that people, it's not always in that order. Rolls eyes. It then says,

"along with what is in our hearts, should be our fundamental guide today-the Bible should be a supplementary guide."

Cuz u said so.

1. Who cares what you believe?

2. What matters is what God says is the truth and he doesn't say, "Whatever goldenbeauty believes is true cuz she believes it". There is only one true way according to the Bible and if you teach a false way you will end up in Hell if you don't stop:

"All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one." - Psalm 14:3

"Everyone has turned away, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one." - Psalm 53:3

"We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way" - Isaiah 53:6

"All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away." - Isaiah 64:6

"The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?" - Jeremiah 17:9

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faithand this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, NOT BY WORKS, SO THAT NO ONCE CAN BOAST." - Ephesians 2:8-9

"he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy." - Titus 3:5

"if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!" - Galatians 1:8
