Ever wonder how to handle the tough ethical issues we face?
The Only Way Is Ethics is an accessible, practical series of guides designed to equip both new and mature Christians to think through important and current ethical issues in the light of the Bible and theology. It offers help to Christians facing these issues themselves and for ministers as they provide guidance.
Each guide (also available separately in print or as an e-book) has a 'Go Deeper' section listing resources for further reference.
Sean Doherty's new introduction to sexual ethics is firmly grounded in solid biblical scholarship and shows clearly and concisely not only what the Bible teaches about sexuality, marriage, singleness and divorce, but why this teaching makes sense in terms of the nature of God and his desire that men and women should flourish and find fulfilment. It is also firmly connected to the realities of the contemporary world and full of practical wisdom. This is an important and timely book that deserves to be widely read. Buy it and give it away to your friends! - Dr Martin Davie, Tutor in Doctrine, Wycliffe Hall, Oxford; author of A Guide to the Church of England.
QUILTBAG: Jesus and sexuality sets out the biblical and theological basis for the Christian view that sex is for marriage only, and that marriage is the union of a woman and a man. Written from within Sean's own experience of same-sex orientation, this guide is accessible and personal.
