Description

The basis for a Christian sexual ethic, says Cahill, is a correlation of four sources: Scripture, Christian tradition (of faith, theology, and practice), philosophy, (normative accounts), and the empirical sciences (descriptive accounts).

Endorsements

"A down-to-earth, common-sense approach to a Christian ethics of male-female relationships that is both compassionate and convincing…Christians seeking to practice their Christian faith in our world of sexual confusion and turmoil will appreciate Cahill's daring insights."'
– Deane Willliam Ferm, St. Luke's Journal of Theology

"Cahill's book is a welcome contribution to current discussion of sexual morality; its argument cuts a path between the extreme positions of popular current polemics and established grounds for a solid Christian ethics of sexuality, substantively and methodologically. Subsequent writings, if they are competent, will have to deal with her argument. That is the highest tribute a review can, I think, give to any book."
– James M. Gustafson, America
