Divine Communion : A Eucharistic Theology Of Sexual Intimacy


First text to place sexual ethics in a sacramental/liturgical context

* Designed to meet the General Convention mandate for “theological reflection”
around issues of sexuality and marriage

* Appropriate for study regardless of gender or orientation

Before Christian communities try to address sexual ethics, the more fundamental
theological question demands attention: What can sexual intimacy tell us about God?
This book invites reflection on sexual relationships within a broad theological framework
marked by creation, fall, and redemption. These classical hallmarks of Christian faith are
proclaimed and enacted at every liturgical celebration of the Eucharist, which offers a
compelling way to engage the link between sexual intimacy and the longing for God, or
the hoped-for promise of “divine communion.”
