Sexuality, Human Rights, and Public Policy explores the intersection of public policy, human rights, and sexuality as they relate to inclusion and exclusion across diverse cultural settings. It examines how knowledge is formed and experienced at the intersections of culture, sexuality, race, and other axes of identity. This volume engages an array of questions including how public policy shapes the conceptualization of sexuality and rights and by extension the phenomena of inclusion and exclusion in contemporary society across the world. By evaluating how public discourse is employed to re-inscribe differences of gender, sexuality, and rights of citizens, this book provides a comparative analysis of how these processes and dynamics resemble each other or differ cross-culturally. This book demonstrates that in the realm of sexualities, approached from the ideal of human rights as a predominantly Western notion is increasingly challenged by diverse views and new interpretations of human rights in non-Western societies such as Africa and the Middle East.
Too often the biblical passages governing sexual morality are interpreted in simplistic, proof texting ways that take no account of the cultural gap between ancient Israel and the modern world. And too often the official positions of churches are determined by opinion polls and majority votes rather than a sober theological and ethical assessment of the issues involved. A third way is called for that avoids the errors of both naive fundamentalism and the Bible-dismissing zeitgeist--a way that puts theological reflection at the forefront. This little book aims to provide a theologically informed, biblical approach to help Christians find a new way forward in their dialogue over questions surrounding homosexuality. It deconstructs the Augustinian theological tradition that has defined, evaluated, and regulated sexual behavior in the western Christian traditions. Kraus maintains that the doctrine of the creation (rather than the doctrine of sin) must be the framework for understanding sexuality and sexual desire. He argues that the basic justification for erotic physical intimacy is the fulfillment of God's original intention for human community (shalom). Beginning with the definition of "the image of God" as a social symbol that mirrors the Trinity, Kraus calls the church to reflect that trinitarian image as it is seen in Christ. He argues that this stance at the very least calls the church to empathetic inclusion of the GLBTQ community in its ongoing discernment conversation, which, of course, means full participation in its life.
Hock's Human Sexuality, Second Edition, takes an interpersonal approach to human sexuality. The central message of the text is developing and defining your own sexual philosophy. Every chapter begins with actual student questions. Throughout the chapter the questions are answered and new ones are posed--encouraging students to think critically, analyze, and use the material in personally relevant ways. Hock takes a psychosocial approach, focusing on those topics that are most critical and of greatest relevance to the students' personal lives, their interactions with others, and how these topics affect them emotionally. This student-centered approach is incorporated into the text's discussions of all areas of sexuality--psychological, social and biological (including medical, health, anatomical and physiological). Sensitivity to diverse groups, not only in terms of race and ethnicity, but also in terms if sexual orientation and age, allows all students to feel as comfortable and open as possible.
