Sexuality, Bible, Church, and Controversy


Sexuality is an important element of human life, and religions typically have perspectives on sexuality and its ethics, yet all too often fail to discuss it. Course explores views and knowledges associated with Western Christianity on the topic, particularly with regard to typically controversial forms of sexuality such as “homosexuality.” The goal is to equip students to be up to date on historical, biblical, conservative, liberationist, post colonial, and scientific and psychiatric perspectives on the topics, as well as ways to deal constructively with conflict in communities.
