Summary
  • Issues of gender and sexuality have recently come to the fore in all humanities disciplines, and this book reflects this situation. Gender and sexuality are understood here within a Christian context characterized by the reality of agape
  • "Issues of gender and sexuality have recently come to the fore in all humanities disciplines, and this book reflects this broad interdisciplinary situation, although its own standpoint is a theological one. In contrast to many contemporary feminist theologies, gender and sexuality (eros) are here understood within a distinctively Christian context characterized by the reality of agape - the New Testament's term for the comprehensive divine-human love that includes the relationship of man and woman within its scope. As in the author's previous books, the intention is to practise a less restrictive approach to biblical interpretation which locates the texts within broad theological and intellectual horizons."--BOOK JACKET
