Item description for Body, Sex, and Pleasure: Reconstructing Christian Sexual Ethics by Christine Gudorf...

Perhaps no other single moral issue today is as hotly contested, or as divisive, as sexuality. Offering a bold and hopeful vision of how Christians can and should think about this explosive topic, ethicist Christine Gudorf proposes nothing less than a sweeping challenge to traditional Christian teaching on sexual roles, activity, and relationships. Deftly drawing on scripture, natural law, the social sciences, historical and contemporary Catholic and Protestant theology-and the actual sexual experiences of today's women and men-Gudorf presents a carefully crafted and systematic reconstruction of Christian sexual ethics-one that attempts, above all, to engender appreciation, not rejection and shame, of our bodies and our sexuality. Contending that body, sex, and pleasure are divine gifts revealing God's grace, Gudorf emphasizes the need to understand sexual desire as a positive good, a source of love and commitment. She further explores the relationship between sexuality and reproduction, advocating an end to unjust and oppressive "procreationism." Gudorf's aim is to reground spirituality in embodiment, a move that requires a careful rethinking of our sexual lives along with faithfulness to scriptural accounts, and Christianity's recognition of the fundamental goodness of the human body in creation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Body, Sex, and Pleasure: Reconstructing Christian Sexual Ethics?

I don't always agree, but she explains the whys well  Sep 13, 2000
When I first started reading this book, I though Gudorf was way off base on a number of her conclusions. I still think that she is, but she does a much better job of explaining why she's reached her conclusions than other theologians have and is much less likely to argue by handwaving.
