Synopsis: Should women be priests? Should women submit to their husbands? Is premarital sex okay? Inflammatory questions such as these have splintered Christianity and polarized the church. In Sex, Gender, and Christianity, a cadre of seasoned college professors offers the modest proposal that honest, fruitful conversations about these questions will take place only if we develop the ability to deal with sex, gender, and the Christian faith with the academic rigor and perspectives of our various disciplines. This volume contributes an unprecedented collection of first-rate articles from a variety of disciplines--from the social sciences to history, from literary criticism to theology--that will challenge college administrators, professors, and students to address fractious questions in an atmosphere of scholarly inquiry. Contributors: David G. Allen, Karen Trimble Alliaume, Brian Bantum, Mikee C. Delony, James G. Dixon III, Antonios Finitsis Theresa J. FitzPatrick, Allyson Jule, Patricia O'Connell Killen, Caryn D. Riswold, and Tina Schermer Sellers Endorsements: "This is a courageous book. At a time when clouds of fear and confusion hover over college classrooms when it comes to talking about sex and gender, here we have a responsible and creative treatment of these thorny topics. It would be a mistake to bypass this book as yet another treatment of sex and gender, because you will not find anything else like it." --Willie James Jennings, Associate Professor of Theology and Black Church Studies, Duke Divinity School "Sex, Gender, and Christianity is a much-needed corrective to polarizing arguments about women's roles and their expectations for equality. Probing historical exemplars from Eve to Carrie Bradshaw, the book's authors exchange heat for light on a topic that sorely needs the latter. This will be an invaluable resource for undergraduate courses in both religious and gender studies." --Diane Winston, Knight Chair in Media and Religion, USC Annenberg School
