Sexuality and the U.S. Catholic Church: Crisis and Renewal
In Sexuality and the U.S. Catholic Church, Lisa Sowle Cahill, John Garvey, and T. Frank Kennedy, S.J. bring together leading Catholic theologians to discuss sexuality in the context of Church tradition, identifying modern-day challenges and pointing to resources for the future.
No issue in the contemporary Church evokes more controversy than sexuality. In the wake of the clerical abuse scandals, the Catholic Church, criticized for being either too repressive or too lenient in its approach to human sexuality, has come under intense scrutiny.
Sexuality and the U.S. Catholic Church explores the issue of sexuality from many angles, opening up a lively and informative exchange on a subject of primary importance in the life of the Church.
