    Why should the church be debating homosexuality? By Ed Shaw. Throughout church history, wonderful theological clarity has come out of divisive theological controversy. Just a few names and times of conflict remind us of this: Athanasius and the early church councils, Martin Luther and the Reformation, Martin Luther King and the struggle for. Two Views on Homosexuality, the Bible, and the Church brings a fresh perspective to a well-worn debate. While Christian debates about homosexuality are most often dominated by biblical exegesis, this book seeks to give much-needed attention to the rich history of received Christian traditio4/5.

      The book argued that the Roman Catholic Church had not always been as hostile to gay people, and indeed, until the 12th century, had thought homosexuality no . by Luke Wayne 9/19/ The early churches were greatly concerned about sexual morality and maintaining purity in their midst. They saw it as the natural outflow of repentance and faith in Christ that a people devoted to the gospel would also be a people who turned away from sinful indulgence of the flesh and who were self-controlled and faithful to God's design for human sexuality.

    Outstanding authorities on Scripture, tradition, reason, biology, ethics, and gendered experience discuss one of the most divisive debates in the church today: the place of homosexuals in the community of faith. Each perspective is explored by two writers, one more conservative, the other more liberal.  : The Use of Scientific Research in the Church's Moral Debate Stanton L. Jones and Mark A. Yarhouse help us face questions surrounding the issue of homosexuality squarely and honestly, examining how scientific research has been used within church debates--especially within Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran and Episcopal contexts.
