Think You Know What the Bible Really Says About Sex? Think Again.
Is premarital sex a sin? When, and in what contexts, is sexual desire appropriate? With whom can I legitimately have sex? Are same-sex relations permissible? With fresh scholarship and unflagging compassion, Jennifer Wright Knust addresses the questions that dominate todays debates over sex and the Bible. At a time when the words the Bible says are too often wielded for social and political gain, its time to consider what scripture actually doesor does notsay about monogamy, homosexuality, gender roles, and sex.
