Series: New Dimensions to Religious Ethics

Publisher's Description

Mark Jordan has written a provocative and stimulating introduction to the issues surrounding sexual ethics and sexuality and theology, filling a much-needed void in this field. Jordan summarizes key topics and themes in the teaching and discussion of religious ethics as well as pushing forward the debate in interesting and original directions.

Author Bio

Mark Jordan is the Asa Griggs Candler Professor in the Department of Religion at Emory University, Atlanta. His academic interests circle around the varieties of moral rhetoric, the history of Christian teachings on sex, and the ambivalent relations of Christianity to medicine. His books include Ordering Wisdom: The Hierarchy of Philosophical Discourse in Aquinas (1986), The Invention of Sodomy in Christian Theology (1997), and The Silence of Sodom: Homosexuality in Modern Catholicism (2000).

Editorial Reviews

"This genealogical approach to Christian sexual ethics is as refreshing as it is illuminating. If this book is taken seriously, and it should be, it could transform the current and totally hackneyed debates." Graham Ward, University of Manchester

"This book provides an informative foundation for a serious study of religious sexual teachings and a helpful survey of current debates in religious circles regarding sexual ethics." Choice

"Occasionally a book appears that stimulates such thoughtful controversy that one can welcome its arrival with a certain delight. Such a book is The Ethics of Sex by Mark Jordan." International Academy for Marital Spirituality Review

"The Ethics of Sex is perhaps the best undergraduate sexual ethics book available today." Journal of the American Academy of Religion

"(A) thought-provoking challenge to all ethicists (theological or secular) who aspire to offer an account of the 'ethics of sex'" Women's Philosophy Review
