16 of 21 people found the following review helpful By Matthew T. Phillips on July 13, 2000
The issue of homosexuality and the church is a broad and difficult issue to discuss, and the authors in this book do a good job of avoiding simplistic answers. Fresh ideas and diverse perspectives make this stand out among similar resources. Seow in particular writes a wonderful essay. Any in-depth exploration of these issues requires several resources, but this should certainly be one of those that you read and to which you refer.

This book, even thought it is over ten years old, is an excellent rendering of the arguments ongoing in the church concerning homosexuality and the ordination of minsters who are gay. It is an academic round table of all sides of the argument. The participants are the faculty of The Princeton Theological Seminary. Read with purpose it will help define views no matter what side of the argument you are on. It is a great book for one to begin a study on the issue. Very recommended.

I should have realized when people said that this book was very difficult to read not to buy. This book is for people who have doctorate in theology.
