Same-Sex Marriage? A Christian Ethical Analysis (Ellison)
A Study on Sexual Ethics for Undecided Churches
Extending the ritual and affirmation of marriage to same-sex couples continues to be hotly contested in many churches. This critical book is written by a gay man and progressive Christian ethicist who places justice-making at the heart of contemporary spirituality.
In dialogue with both legal scholars and theologians, Ellison examines the strengths and weaknesses of how marriage traditionalists, advocates of same-sex marriage, and LBGT critics of marriage analyze the issues and frame their arguments. Same-Sex Marriage? offers constructive proposals for revitalizing Christian sexual ethics.
