Living in Sin? : A Bishop Rethinks Human Sexuality
by John Shelby Spong


Overview - "I call upon Christian leaders in all traditions to respond and act with intelligence rather than fear. If Christian leaders cannot do this, then all churches will discover that ignorance, no matter how sanctified with pious words, is still ignorance and the voice of the church will be ignored as irrelevant"

Overview
"I call upon Christian leaders in all traditions to respond and act with intelligence rather than fear. If Christian leaders cannot do this, then all churches will discover that ignorance, no matter how sanctified with pious words, is still ignorance and the voice of the church will be ignored as irrelevant"
-- John Shelby Spong

Is celibacy the only moral alternative to marriage? Should the widowed be allowed to form intimate relationships without remarrying? Should the church receive homosexuals into its community and support committed gay and lesbian relationships? Should congregations publicly and liturgically witness and affirm divorces? Should the church& 39;s moral standards continue to be set by patriarchal males? Should women be consecrated bishops? Bishop Spong proposes a pastoral response based on scripture and history to the changing realities of the modern world. He calls for a moral vision to empower the church with inclusive teaching about equal, loving, nonexploitative relationships.
