Publishers Description No issue in the contemporary Church evokes more controversy than sexuality. In the wake of the clerical abuse scandals, the Catholic Church has come under intense scrutiny, criticized for being either too repressive or too lenient in its approach to human sexuality. In "Sexuality and the U.S. Catholic Church," Lisa Sowle Cahill, John Garvey, and T. Frank Kennedy, S.J. introduce the work of leading Catholic theologians, writers, and scholars to help ground the conversation in the tradition, identify modern-day challenges, and point to resources for the future. Topics include homosexuality and marriage; theology of the body: possibilities and limitations; views of celibacy past and present; rebuilding community; childbearing; sexual discipleship; and future challenges.
