Abstract : "Spanning thousands of years, this new collection brings together writings and teachings about sex, marriage, and family from the Jewish, Christian, Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, and Confucian traditions. Chosen and introduced by leading scholars of each religion, the volume's selections include a wide array of traditional texts. The book also contains contemporary writings, responding to the changing mores and conditions of modern life." "Sex, Marriage and Family in World Religions reveals the similarities and differences among the various religions and the development of ideas and teachings within each tradition. It sheds light on each religion's views on a wide variety of subjects, including sexuality and sexual pleasure, the meaning and purpose of marriage, the role of betrothal, the status of women, the place of romance, grounds for divorce, celibacy, and sexual deviance."--Jacket
