This significant contribution to theological ethics shows that sexuality is not the sole, nor even the main ground on which a scriptural understanding of identity rests - rather it is the fullness of humanity's relationship with God. In that light, Holiness and Desire offers a wise resource for theological reflection on all that makes our relationships and has the power to distort them. Subjects include: - Longing for belonging, possession and idolatry; - Fidelity, betrayal and abuse; - Romantic dreams of fulfilment and completion; - Companionship and nurturing beyond kinship; - Knowing and being known; - Unfulfilled desire and the yearning for God. A wide-ranging and profoundly thoughtful book, it explores the consequences of narrowing the understanding of human identity and relationship to the area of sexual desire and calls for a broader, more holistic view.
