Overview

Contemporary culture provides confusing messages about the meaning and purpose of human sexuality, and often sex education that is offered does not promote a mature, integrated understanding of sexuality. Human Sexuality in the Catholic Tradition meets the great need for pastoral guidance in addressing moral issues of sexuality in both the church and broader culture today. Kieran Scott and Harold D. Horell explore with other leading scholars how to draw from the best Christian faith traditions to renew our understanding of sexuality, explore the integration of our sexuality and spirituality, and develop life-affirming and life-sustaining ways of approaching contemporary sexual issues. This book explores sexuality from multiple perspectives in addressing issues such as sex and marriage, celibacy, homosexuality, and cohabitation.
