Loader looks at hotly contested New Testament passages on sexuality and offers a fair and balanced treatment of what scholars say about them. He also offers an analysis of why interpreters say what they say and demonstrates how texts may be interpreted specifiallly to support a preformed opinion. Written in straightforward, nontechnical language, this timely and informative text is ideal for college classes as well as Bible study groups.
