'This is one of those books that, after you have read it, you will come back to it and re-read it again and again...it is an important book, written with clarity and even humour, which will be crucial for postgraduate students and advanced undergraduates in the complex area of theology and sexuality. It is unique in the genre and highly recommended.' Marcella M. Althaus-Reid, University of Edinburgh, Expository Times, 2007 --, "Expository Times "
