This book offers a calm, theologically and biblically rooted perspective on same-sex love and relationships. It illuminates without heat, and it will enrich the Church's conversation around these matters. I'm grateful to those who have written it, and I commend it warmly for study.
Amazing Love brings together the wisdom and insight of leading Christian theologians to offer a clear and positive case for the affirmation of gay, lesbian, and bisexual relationships within the Church, as a part of its mission and as an integral part of Christian discipleship for the whole of our lives.
In short, accessible chapters, Andrew Davison (Starbridge Lecturer in Theology and Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge) explores issues of sexuality in relation to Being Followers of Jesus, Being Human, Being Biblical, Being Part of the Story, Being in Love, and Being Missional.
Amazing Love has been written by Andrew in collaboration with: Duncan Dormor (Dean of Chapel, St Johns College, Cambridge), Ruth Harley (Childrens and Families Minister at All Saints Church, High Wycombe), Rosie Harper (Vicar of Great Missenden and Chaplain to the Bishop of Buckingham), Elizabeth Phillips (Tutor in Theology and Ethics, Westcott House, Cambridge), Jeff Phillips (Tutor in Philosophy and Theology, Westcott House, Cambridge), Simon Sarmiento (Co-founder of Thinking Anglicans), Jane Shaw (Dean for Religious Life and Professor of Religious Studies, Stanford University, California and Canon Emerita, Salisbury Cathedral), and Alan Wilson (Bishop of Buckingham).
The Foreword has been written by Canon Mark Russell, Chief Executive, of Church Army UK and Ireland.
