Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the first book I've read which truly subverts both the dominant hetero-normative and gay-rights agendas. Stuart's argument is highly original: she examines lesbian and gay experiences as a way of deepening our understanding of all relationships, rather than as a way of supporting more conventional claims for gay rights, which tend simply to mimic hetero-normative concepts (evident in particular in the debate over marriage). The author asks us to reconsider the apartheid between our "non-sexual" and our "sexual" relationships, and proposes a healthier and more inclusive Christian attitude of embodied love, affection, mutuality, and commitment over against our present dualistic and patriarchal bonds.

Going back to the beginning to challenge assumed truths. 16 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
When I read this book, I wanted to cry. Here was an author who understood me, my thinking, and my need to get to the roots of my faith. Stuart begins by time-traveling back to the beginning of Christianity and explains how our current system was developed. She then questions the "rightness" of these developments, and offers new options for how Christians look at relationships. If you have ever wondered what is essential to the Christian faith and what has been unnecessarily added through a heterosexual-male-dominated history, you MUST read this book.
