The topic of sexual ethics and interest in sexuality in theology generally, has grown considerably in recent years. Mark Jordan has written a provocative and stimulating introduction to the issues involved, 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. The Ethics of Sex is divided into three parts, covering problems in principles of ethics, difficulties in the history of ethics, such as marriage and divorce, and crimes against nature, and finally, new possibilities in Christianity, such as redeeming pleasure. Mark Jordan is part of a young group of theologians who represent a concerted attempt to reconceptualize and re-engender Christian theology from non-heterosexual, marginal perspectives. The author is one of the most exciting and avant garde of Christian writers at the interface of medieval history and postmodern theology, and won widespread praise for his ground-breaking study, The Invention of Sodomy in Christian Theology. The issues surrounding sexual ethics will always arouse controversy and interest. This is a book which will delight some - and will undoubtedly infuriate others. Above all, it will not be ignored.

Mark D. Jordan is the Reverend Priscilla Wood Neaves Distinguished Professor of Religion and Politics at the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics at Washington University. He�was previously�the Richard Reinhold Niebuhr Professor of Divinity and Professor of Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality at Harvard University and also�taught�at the University of Notre Dame and Emory University. He is the author or editor of more than a dozen books.
