Product Description

William Loader has studies sexuality within the literature and historical context of the Old and New Testament's extensively. His resume includes the titles The Dead Sea Scrolls and Sexuality (2009), Enoch, Levi, and Jubilees on Sexuality (2007), Sexuality and the Jesus Tradition (2005), and The Septuagint, Sexuality, and the New Testament (2004).

Here, Loader brings his historic, literary, and cultural expertise about sexuality to bear on the New Testament focusing in precisely on the most controversial texts including Romans 1, 1 Corinthians 6--among others--while also including an examination of instructional marriage texts and eventually providing a road map for understanding sex as Christians in our late modern context.

Loader provides the perspective to readers of an academic researcher seeking to understand the world that shaped the text, and not as an interested commentator or ideologue. Yet, he also offers an analysis of why interpreters say what they say, and demonstrates how texts may be interpreted specifically to support a preformed opinion, legitimate or otherwise.

Written in straightforward, non-technical language, this text is ideal for groups and individuals who truly want to wrestle with the New Testament text in its context and come to solid conclusions about the Scriptural report on sex. Sexuality in the New Testament is a resource that is very much needed in our churches today.

Publisher's Description

Loader looks at hotly contested New Testament passages on sexuality and offers a fair and balanced treatment of what scholars say about them. He also offers an analysis of why interpreters say what they say, and demonstrates how texts may be interpreted specifically to support a preformed opinion.
