"When it comes to same-sex relationships, there is one thing we cannot forget-people," says Karen Keen. In this cogent book Keen breaks through the current stalemate in the debate surrounding faith and sexual identity by presenting fresh evidence from Scripture, Christian tradition, theology, and science. With pastoral sensitivity and respect for biblical authority, Scripture, Ethics, and the Possibility of Same-Sex Relationships derives from Scripture itself a principled and consistent way of applying biblical teaching to this difficult topic. Keen helpfully casts biblical insights in the context of how the church has responded to gays and lesbians throughout history. Keen's evenhanded reevaluation will appeal to both traditionalist and progressive church leaders and parishioners, students of ethics and biblical studies, and gay and lesbian people who often feel painfully torn between faith and sexuality.
