9780060675073: Living in Sin?: A Bishop Rethinks Human Sexuality

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'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.

Review:

Probably the most radical pronouncement on sex ever issued by a bishop. --Time magazine

John Shelby Spong…is a brave churchman. He has the guts to tell it like it is. --National Catholic Reporter
