Sexuality in the New Testament: Understanding the Key Texts

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, Aug 16, 2010 - Religion - 176 pages
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.

Written in straightforward, non-technical language, this classroom text is also ideal for Bible study groups.
