An accessible introduction to important topics that are deeply contested within the Church of England - marriage, gender equality and sexuality.
It draws on sources displaying an inclusive perspective whilst staying respectful to those who take a different view. It explores a diverse and fascinating range of questions such as: How should the church treat those who do not conform to gender stereotypes, or experience their gender atypically?
Are there limits to inclusion? What should the church say about desire and self-control?Informative and thought-provoking, this book enables the reader to 'think better' about the issues discussed by presenting the history, the religious texts, the forms of reasoning and the recent scholarship which these topics have attracted both inside and outside of theology.
