Description
The Bible is full of narratives about sexual encounters. And while modern readers have shown a widespread interest in uncovering authentic biblical thought on marriage, adultery, divorce, homosexuality, and prostitution, many clergy, lay people, and even legislators continue to look upon these words (even the most cryptic, confusing, and bizarre ones) as authoritative literal statements. One of the leading biblical scholars in the United States, Michael Coogan bridges the gap between popular use of the Bible and its original meanings within the context of the social worlds in which it was written.

"Readers looking for an unbiased appraisal of what the Bible says about premarital sex, homosexuality, and polygamy can trust Coogan, a biblical scholar of the highest order. Concise, clear, and accessible to general readers, this book covers all the usual topics plus a few that may surprise.... Coogan's reminder at the book's end that modern application of biblical texts requires interpretation and nuance is a welcome corrective to selective, literalist use."Publishers Weekly (starred review)
