Reviews - What do customers think about Women, Celibacy, and the Church: Toward a Theology of the Single Life?
Incredibly helpful! Sep 8, 2008
This book tackles the whole issue of celibacy for single Christians- not just priestly celibacy. Kidder's overview of original source material from the Biblical era to the present was extremely helpful!
