Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed
"Scholars mostly of religion but also of gender and other concerns in the social sciences begin with synthetic essays on how the relationship between homosexuality and religion plays out in law, the social sciences, the biological sciences, and spirituality. The core articles survey attitudes and practices in a range of religions and Christian denominations; and consider such topics as AIDS and HIV, clergy and ordination, marriage, and queer theology." - Reference & Research Book News
"[T]his book would be a useful starting point for someone doing research on homosexuality and religion….Since there are few encyclopedias on this topic, this would probably be a useful volume for any library." - Catholic Library World
"The entries are brief enough to belong to a reference volume, yet detailed enough to give the reader a good introduction to each religious tradition's views of homosexuality….[t]he book is well written, the information may be easily accressed, the viewpoints are respectfully discussed, and sources for further study are made available in the form of recommended readings and useful websites….Homosexuality and Religion is a much-needed reference volume and should be made widely available to clinicians and training programs working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered populations." - PsycCRITIQUES
