"[E]dited by Paul Germond and Steve de Gruchy".
Includes bibliographical references and index.
"I come from a society that has been deprived, discriminated against, oppressed and marginalised. What I found most attractive about Jesus Christ was just how he identified with those who belonged to such a group of persons. It was heart-warming that he actually sat at table with those whom society of the time considered scum, those whom it despised and vilified -- the prostitutes, the sinners and tax-collectors. What Jesus did was to say they belonged, they were insiders too, not strangers, not aliens. I found that to be a wonderfully affirming characteristic of Our Lord -- he came so that those who were excluded should henceforth be included, those who were apart should come together. That seems to me to have been at the heart of His message: 'I, if I be lifted up, will draw all to me' (p. [ix])". "If the church, after the victory over apartheid, is looking for a worthy moral crusade, then this is it: the fight against homophobia and heterosexism. I pray that we will engage in it with the same dedication and fervour with which we showed against the injustice of racism, so that we may rehabilitate the gospel of Jesus Christ in the eyes of many who have been deeply hurt and whose testimony we read in these pages. `Aliens in the Household of God' will enable us to come to the struggle as informed combatants" (p. [x]). -- Foreword.

Includes bibliographical references.
"This collection of addresses is meant to be a contribution to the ongoing discussion about Christian faith, human sexuality and specifically the blessing of same sex unions in the Anglican Church of Canada. It is also meant to be an invitation to enter into dialogue as a Christian people. .... Dialogue, however, differs greatly from discussion or debate. The word 'discussion' like the words 'percussion' and 'concussion' has a root meaning 'to shake apart'. It is the activity of breaking down or segmenting an issue in more and more detail. It differs from 'debate' which at its roots means 'to beat down'. In debates we seek to persuade or to convince another and to do so often by demolishing another's position if not their person ! .... What that means is that for Christians dialogue is first and foremost an encounter between members of one Body who meet with, and in, and through Christ." -- Introduction.
Contents: Preface -- Covenant for International Anglican Conversations on Human Sexuality -- Contributing Authors -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction to Dialogue / John Privett -- The Context of the Anglican Communion Stand ? / Victoria Matthews -- Small Group Discussion Summary -- The Context of Culture and Social Psychology: The Social Construction of Gender / Karen Nielsen -- Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Liberation in Canada: Moves Toward a Just Society / Andre Grace -- Small Group Discussion Summary -- The Context of Biology / The Biology of Homosexuality / Paul Vasey and Nancy Bartlett -- The Context of the Old Testament: Genesis 1 and 2: Alternative Perspectives on Foundational Theological Anthropology / Walter Deller -- Small Group Discussion Summary -- The Context of the New Testament: Seeking to be Faithful in the Uneasy Middle / Terence Donaldson -- Small Group Discussion Summary -- The Context of Theological Considerations: Same-Sex Blessings: Some Theological Considerations for the Church / Susan Storey -- Small Group Discussion Summary.
"At the time of the dialogue series, Bishop Privett was Rector of the Parish of Christ Church, Edmonton and instigated the series to help his parishioners to consider an issue that has created dissension within the Anglican Communion, in Canada and globally. He was subsequently elected Bishop of Kootenay and took up his new post on September 1, 2005". -- p. xi.

"What are the most important biblical texts for modern Christians to read in order to arrive at responsible decisions regarding the ethics of human sexual behavior ? How should the Bible be used in this enterprise ? The contributors to this book, all noted biblical scholars, confront these questions as they deal with issues surrounding the ethics of sexual behavior, in general, and the divisive issue of gay/lesbian ordination in particular. They provide for the reader a deeper understanding of the Bible, its intentions, and its variety." -- back cover.

"[Compiled and arranged by] William G. Storey".
"This is a prayer book designed for gay and lesbian Christians. It contains prayers collected from ancient, medieval, and modern sources ". .... "The prayer book also tries to be ecumenical. Leaving aside the negative, hostile, and derogatory attitudes of our divided past, Christians may find it possible to use a prayer book that draws on many sources. In particular, it draws inspiration from the many new liturgical books that have been published recently. Whether they be Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, or Roman Catholic, they all share a basic attitude and approach to prayer -- both communal and private -- that can be said to be common. Furthermore, in this prayer book you will find passages from the New Testament and from later Christian poets, mystics, theologians, and writers of many eras. They all constitute a rich treasury of material. The intention is to provide a prayer book that can be used -- in whole or in part -- by a variety of Christians". -- Intro.

"[By] John Boswell".
Includes bibliography (p. 403-409) and index.
"John Boswell's revolutionary study of the history of attitudes toward homosexuality in the Christian West challenges received opinion and our own preconceptions about the Church's past relationship to its gay members, among whom were priests, and even bishops and canonized saints. The historical breadth of Boswell's research (from the Greeks to Aquinas) and the variety of sources consulted (legal, literary, theological, artistic, and scientific) make this one of the most extensive treatments of any single aspect of Western social history". -- back cover.
