Product Description

Would a loving God really forbid divorce---even in extreme circumstances? Would he refuse a homosexual Christian who wanted to be ordained? Jon M. Walton, a Presbyterian minister, isn't so sure. In Imperfect Peace: Teaching Sermons on Troubling Texts, he exhorts Christians to think twice about biblical texts that seem to deny the "core proclamation" that God is a God of goodness, justice, and love. 114 pages, softcover, Abingdon.
