Editorial Reviews

Religious Studies Review
. . . lucidly distinguishes among nature/nurture, essentialist/constructionist, and determinist/voluntarist . . .
— Susan Henking, Hobart and William Smith Colleges
Bruce Bawer
Exceptionally comprehensive, admirably balanced, endlessly thought-provoking."
Chesire Calhoun
[An] extremely useful collection of original pieces and recent classics.
Religious Studies Review - Susan Henking
. . . lucidly distinguishes among nature/nurture, essentialist/constructionist, and determinist/voluntarist . . .
National Catholic Reporter
This is a thoughtful book, one that provides plenty of space for reflection and drawing one's own conclusions—or seeking further information.
Washington Post Book World
This series of essays and responses makes for a calm, measured debate on the morality of homosexuality and of society's treatment of homosexuals . . . [and] attempts to substitute reason and scholarship for diatribe.
Times Literary Supplement
One welcomes with enthusiasm, therefore, Same Sex, a series of twenty-seven essays which gives space to arguments on both, or more, sides of many of the issues surrounding homosexuality, and genuinely seeks to engage in intellectual debate.
