Reviews

"Carey's book is a collection of six essays, written by respected Protestant theologians of the mainline churches, who offer theological arguments in defense of human rights for gays and lesbians, including their right to serve in the military. . . . it does reveal two different spiritual universes, one defending the ethical nature of a responsible gay lifestyle, and the other wrestling for a tiny bit of freedom so that masturbation does not necessarily and under all circumstances merit eternal punishment. . . . the difference between the Roman Catholic and the liberal Protestant approach to human sexuality is so enormous that it has become a church-dividing factor. This is an issue that deserves theological reflection." - Journal of Ecumenical Studies
