Kuehne surveys what the natural and social sciences conclude about gender and human sexuality. He goes on to explain how postmodernity impacts social policy and such issues as sexual orientation, redefinition of the family, and more. Kuehne then retells the Christian story through the lens of a relational theology, highlighting how it affects marriage, civil unions, divorce, adoption, and sex education. In the end, he argues, the journey toward satisfying our craving for fulfillment requires that we pay attention to healthy relational intimacy.
Sex and the iWorld will be an essential tool for courses on political science, social policy, and Christianity and culture. Most important, the book will help academics, students, church leaders, and laity develop a holistic strategy for engaging wider society about sexual ethics and public policy.

Even as the broader culture has deviated from the traditional understanding of sexual ethics and marriage, so have Christians. . . . Given the rapid shift in the sexual behavior of Christians, it should come as no surprise that when the church attempts to respond to the questions posed by the Sexual Revolution, it does so with mixed messages, a muted voice, and little impact. . . . The answer for the church is not to withdraw permanently from the public debate about sexual morality. Instead we need to step back, think deeply about what we believe, and rearticulate it in a better way. Most of all, we need to practice what we profess and in doing so, reengage the culture in a dialogue about the meaning of sexuality.
