Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This long-awaited book by one of American Christianity's foremost ethicists proposes a framework for sexual ethics whereby justice is the criterion for all loving, including love that is related to sexual activity and relationships. It begins with historical and cross-cultural explorations, then addresses the large questions of embodiment, gender, and sexuality, and finally delineates the justice framework for sexual ethics.Though Just Love's particular focus is Christian sexual ethics, Farley's framework is broad enough to have relevance for multiple traditions. Also covered are specific issues in sexual ethics, including same-sex relationships, marriage and family, divorce and second marriage, celibacy, and sex and its negativities.

Synopsis:

In a pathbreaking exploration of sexual ethics, Farley--who is highly regarded by her peers on both the right and the left, by religious feminists and Christian moralists--sheds new light on key issues: justice, personhood, the family, feminism, homosexuality, reproductive technology, and more. Farley is the author of Personal Commitments: Making, Keeping, Breaking.
