Item description for Rescuing Sex from the Christians by Clayton Sullivan...
Overview In this provocative study intended for lay audiences, Sullivan explores the notion that sexual desires may also be God-given gifts. Christians struggling with their sexuality will find inspiration and solace in this book.
Publishers Description Why has the church over the centuries exhibited a hostile attitude toward sex? Sullivan contends that early Christian theologians failed to understand the mythic character of the Adam and Eve as well as portraying the soul and body as constantly at war with one another. He alsoexamines the controversial subjects of masturbation, homosexuality, adultery, and prostitution and demonstrates how the Christian idea of sexuality has vilified these practices, not always for the good.
