Format: Paperback
William E. Phipps (1930-2010) was an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church, and was Professor of Religion and Philosophy at Davis & Elkins College from 1955 to 1995; he also wrote books such as Darwin's Religious Odyssey, Was Jesus Married? The Distorition of Sexuality in the Christian Tradition, Muhammad and Jesus: A Comparison of the Prophets and Their Teachings, Death: Confronting the Reality, etc.

He wrote in the Introduction to this 1996 book, "Throughout most of church history, Christians have not raised questions about the sexuality of Jesus. They have accepted the prevailing tradition from the church fathers that Jesus, like his mother, was a lifelong virgin... only one out of every five Lutherans believed that Jesus has sexual desire. Probably an even lower percentage believe that he engaged in sexual intercourse, in spite of Martin Luther's counter position." [Luther's Works, Volume 54: Table Talk, pg. 154] "When I suggested that Jesus was probably married, I was amazed to find out how much it irritated a broad spectrum of people... I defended at length my thesis that Jesus probably had a wife sometime during his adult years." (Pg.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although I am not what one reviewer termed a "hard-core Christian," I felt somehow uneasy coming to grips that perhaps Jesus had been married and was a sexual human being like most of us are. But why not? After all, he was FULLY human!! I must admit I've wondered whether Jesus had been tempted sexually like the rest of us. It was hard for me to imagine, but then I had to acknowledge that I had a hard time imagining him doing the any of the usual excretory business that we all go through. But just because I couldn't "imagine" it is not a justifiable reason to dismiss something different. What really opened my mind and kept me reading and thinking was the way Jesus was presented - i.e., the author wasn't a "Jesus-basher." He writes logically and respectfully. This book was enlightening and VERY readable! I'm sure my conservative Christian friends would think I'm on the road to perdition, but I see it as expanding my mind and my outlook. EXCELLENT little book! Will look for more books by Mr. Phipps!
