Just a few decades ago, the basic obligations of traditional sexual ethics seemed intuitively obvious to our society, even if many felt them as something of an irksome burden. Today, talk of lifelong commitment or sexual complementarity sounds like an alien language, and a sexuality of freedom and self-definition dominates. How did so much change so fast? In this Digest, Alastair Roberts explores the cultural forces that have combined to radically alter our perception of sexual morality, and what needs to change if we are to find our way back to reality.
Many Protestants today have not merely lost touch with their church’s past, but feel that it has lost touch with them.
With Davenant Digests we seek to bring the church’s past into clear focus for Christians today, and use it to shed light on the challenges of the church's present. Written in a clear, lively, and down-to-earth style, these short introductions aim to answer questions that ordinary Christians have, in terms that ordinary Christians will want to read.
