Human Sexuality in the Catholic Tradition
- Publish Date: 2007-03-06

Contemporary culture provides conflicting and confusing messages about the meaning and purpose of human sexuality, and often sex education that is offered often 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 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 our spirituality, and develop life-affirming and life-sustaining ways of approaching contemporary sexual issues. This book explores sexuality from spiritual, psychological, moral and ministerial perspectives, and addresses specific issues such as sex and marriage, celibacy, homosexuality, and cohabitation.
