  • Summary:

    From The Library Journal: This book is the best this reviewer has read on the topic. It affirms the value of healthy sexuality, discusses desire and temptation, cites an example of pastoral failure to set boundaries, explores the uniqueness of pastoral roles in this context, and shows how sexual contact can be affected by these roles. The study develops an ethical analysis framework and discusses special issues such as women in ministry, single clergypersons, and homosexual or bisexual clergypersons. Essential for seminary libraries and recommended for public libraries.
