Sexuality is both fascinating and troubling. It seems to promise
that transcendence of ourselves which is our deepest human desire,
and yet it makes us painfully aware of our limits and of the
supreme difficulty of finding ourselves in the process of losing
ourselves. The relationship of Christianity to sexuality has been
particularly troubled, but this book is an attempt to reflect on
the phenomenon of sexuality from the standpoint of what is central
to Christianity, that is, the view of God and of the human
condition which became real in the words and in the life of Jesus
of Nazareth. The book tries to answer this question: if we take
Christianity seriously, how do we think about our sexuality and
what do we do about it? This book draws on the ethical reflections
of many thinkers, and it draws on much work in psychology, but its
primary focus is either that of ethics or of psychology. The book
intends to be theology: the attempt to talk intelligently about God
and the relationship of God to every area of human existence and
especially to those aspects of life which are near the center of
the human personality: and foremost among such is sexuality.
