Agape, Eros, Gender: Towards a Pauline Sexual Ethic by Francis Watson

By Francis Watson

problems with gender and sexuality have lately come to the fore in all humanities disciplines, and this e-book displays this wide interdisciplinary state of affairs, even if its personal point of view is largely theological. unlike many modern feminist theologies, gender and sexuality (eros) are the following understood inside of a distinctively Christian context characterised by way of the truth of agape - the recent Testament's time period for the excellent divine-human love that comes with the connection of guy and girl inside its scope. The principal challenge is obstacle with key Pauline texts in terms of gender and sexuality (1 Cor. eleven, Rom. 7, Eph. 5), texts whose impression on western theology and tradition has been enduring and pervasive. they're learn right here together with later theological and non-theological texts that replicate that effect - starting from Augustine and Barth to Virginia Woolf, Freud and Irigaray.
