Bringing Sex into Focus: The Quest for Sexual Integrity

Publisher's Description

In a culture that includes sex in everything from advertising to climbing the corporate ladder, it’s easy to feel fuzzy about the true purpose and place of sexuality. In this book philosopher and ethicist Caroline J. Simon identifies six “lenses” through which people understand sex and sexuality: covenantal, procreative, expressive, romantic, power, and “plain sex.” Guided by a virtue ethic, she applies those lenses to a variety of sexual scenarios, from flirtation and desire to marital sexuality, helping us to see what filters we run issues of sexuality through and how, properly ordered and weighted, they can help us achieve sexual integrity. Here is a book for anyone interested in developing a holistic, biblical sexual ethic that brings into focus the bewildering array of cultural sexual presentations we’re surrounded by every day.
