In this book, James Nelson offers an incarnational way of doing theology. He takes body experiences seriously and views sexuality as central to the mystery of human experience and to the human relationship with God. He seeks to identify what scripture and tradition says about sexuality, focusing on three areas of concern: sexual theology, men's issues, and biomedical ethics. He blames a faulty dualism that separates body and spirit for distorting the meanings of masculinity, making modern medicine confusing, and fueling militarism, racism, and ecological abuse.

Reviews - What do customers think about Body Theology?
An academic and reflective book. Jul 5, 2006
This book seems to be very much a sequel to Nelson's "Embodiment." It is a theological discussion of homosexuality from the liberal point of view such as that of John Shelby Sprong. His theological discussions are interspersed with personal narratives from his own life where he met Homosexuals, including a gay men with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. I believe that this book has more academic than personal applicability for point and counterpoint discussion.
