It is a compilation of historical, scientific and statistical material aimed at providing churches and their partners with a better understanding of the dynamics of HIV/AIDS as well as current information to aid in collaborative efforts at answering the challenge of the disease. .... On a practical level this response is deliberately multi-faceted and interactive, encouraging churches and Christian service organizations to build and support coalitions dedicated to overcoming this epidemic". -- Preface.

"The appearance of the `Study on Sexuality and Human Relations' has been long awaited. Since the WCC's Sixth Assembly in Vancouver, Canada in 1983, when the project was proposed as a way of encouraging churches to re-examine sexuality and develop relevant educational approaches and adequate pastoral care, many persons -- probably hundreds -- have been involved in providing support, comments, and criticism". -- Preface, p. i.
"The WCC's Office of Family Education has reviewed the statements on sexuality and human relations made by its member churches in order to produce a resource which might help Christians in different cultures reflect upon their own attitudes and actions, and share their findings with others. .... This workbook does not pretend to be an exhaustive or normative work on human sexuality. The topics presented here may be regarded as steps on a life-long journey of discovery, reflecting and sharing on the meaning of human sexuality. Each church, congregation or group has the right -- and the wisdom -- to take up and study the themes it considers most pertinent to its particular context. The aim of this book, then, is to provide some guidelines to help the churches in different cultures develop their own ways of dealing frankly and sensitively with issues closely linked to our identity, our roles and our capacity to relate, care and procreate". -- back cover.
