The Purpose of this Blog

This blog is dedicated to continuing the conversation begun in Reasonable and Holy: Engaging Same-Sexuality, due off press from Seabury Books within a month or so. Pre-publication orders can be placed at the CPI website. The volume itself is intended in part as a fulfillment of the “Listening Process” mandated by Lambeth 1998.1.10, and as a response and rebuttal to the familiar arguments raised against the morality of faithful, life-long, monogamous same-sex relationships.

I welcome comments or questions here, in particular to further the discussion. I also hope to offer an index and source index for the volume, and additional resources.

Wow! I remember when all of this was first posted on your other blog and the many interesting discussions that ensued in the comments. And now here you have a book coming out of it all. Congratulations! This is an important contribution to the ongoing discussion/debate/dialogue. I look forward to getting a copy.

Thanks, Bryan. I made an effort to incorporate much of the discussion fro the blog into the revised first nine chapters, and added three whole new chapters from scratch. The last chapter even revives the old dialogue format, though not with characters such as Senex and Simplicicus. I've also made an effort to provide some extended quotations from hard to get to sources, as a help in demystification.
