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 today's debates over sex and the Bible. At a time when the words "the Bible says" are too often wielded for social and political gain, it's time to consider what scripture actually does - or does not - say about monogamy, homosexuality, gender roles, and sex.
