Item Description...
Is our sexuality foundational and essential to our being? Grenz feels that it is, based on his understanding of the Bible. As a human, one must be either male or female. That sexual distinction must be recognized as a primary characteristic in all humanity. But what exactly is sexuality? And how can we separate sexuality from sexual actions? The answers, according to Grenz, are more theological than simply psychological or social. He wrote Sexual Ethics: An Evangelical Perspective to clarify the theology of sexuality, and to place sexuality in its proper place in creation. He looks at several key questions, including the nature of sexuality, how marriage expresses sexuality, how singleness expresses sexuality, and how the church should view and respond to sexuality. Sexuality manifests itself in a desire for community, and is, in and of itself, the ultimate manifestation of community, of two becoming one. Thus, the marriage relationship can be seen as the context which best describes and fulfills sexuality. Grenz deals with the issues which denigrate marriage, including adultery and divorce. He also discusses how singles can express their sexuality in a Godly way. He even touches on technological issues like abortion as birth control, and fertility advances (in vitro fertilization, cloning, etc.) And he looks at homosexuality and its relationship to true sexuality. Grenz faces all the issues head on, and has developed a cogent, broad-based and biblical theology of sexuality. His theology will help to clarify the role that sex and sexuality should play in our lives, and will ultimately help the Church to restore a proper view of sex and sexuality in our culture.

Publishers Description

In this biblically grounded study, Stanley Grenz synthesizes theology, ethics, and current medical research to offer an evangelical perspective on the profound role which sexuality plays in our lives, and in doing so, calls the church to be a reconciling community which proclaims God's grace to all.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
"Pretty Good" sexual ethics book for evangelicals  Aug 20, 2009
This book, a little over 250 pages of content, was very clearly titled. It is mostly a book about sexual ethics, an evangelical perspective. It received positive back-cover reviews even from people who disagree with many of its premises (James B. Nelson, for example). Overall, I'd give it a mostly positive review, too, but not without caveats.

The world of overall sexual ethics works for evangelicals is, unfortunately, not populated with a bounty of quality. This book was above average in my opinion. Many of the foundations are conservative with roots in tradition and history. For those who accept those foundations, this work will be appealing. The logic is reasonably consistent and the conclusions are mostly predictable.

My biggest complaint would be that while the title is ethics, and while the work aims to be ethical in nature, it reverts back to legalistic / moralistic thought from time to time. To be expected (for example), the heterosexual monogamy standard is presented and applied throughout the book. While this is not done without any thought at all, the level of exploration and critique of both the starting statements and the logic is not particularly comprehensive. Grenz may have intended for those ideas (heterosexuality and monogamy) to be presented as ethics, but he repeatedly takes them to a legalistic finish.

Overall, a good read for those with an interest in sexual ethics but predictable and not really a home run. 3 1/2 stars if I could.
