Sexuality and Catholicism offers a concise and well-rounded analysis of all the most important and most widely discussed issues concerning sexuality and Roman Catholicism. The theme of this volume--the sin of sexuality--is as old as the creation story and as new as the Vatican's reassertion that divorced and remarried Catholics must choose between the sacraments and having sex in marriage. A daily presence in the news, this highly controversial subject affects millions within the church and millions more who look to the church for moral guidance.
"A balanced, broad summary of Catholicism's response to sexuality." Kirkus

Book News
Fox (editor, National Catholic Reporter ) tackles the controversial subject of human sexuality and its myriad manifestations within the context of Catholic religiosity hoping, as he says in his preface, to "move past a point of polarization to an acceptance of sexuality and faith as gifts of a loving Creator." He discusses the history of the church's views on sexuality and the papal encyclical Humanae Vitae and the more recent Evangelium Vitae , analyzing the issues of abortion, homosexuality, priest pedophilia, birth control, and the role of women in the church.
