I really appreciate this book as a strong statement of progressive Christian sexual ethics, with which I am in substantial agreement. Ellison's writing is lucid and his academic apparatus is strong. As a theologian, I wish Ellison would engage explicitly with the biblical text more--as it is, because conservative Christians are not his audience, he risks alienating them by not using it, and perhaps by being heard as condescending.

Sex + Faith

The most difficult chapter for me was the chapter on r I really appreciate this book as a strong statement of progressive Christian sexual ethics, with which I am in substantial agreement. The most difficult chapter for me was the chapter on reproductive justice. As a Christian who believes that abortion is a social evil that nevertheless should be legal because abortions decrease when well-supervised and sanitary conditions exist , nevertheless I do not know why the life of the unborn should not be the primary consideration--Ellison does not explain, but only asserts, that this is the case.

I still fail to see how any of the other ethics Ellison wants us to adopt are relevant if human beings do not have an unalienable right to exist. The argument that comes closest to convincing me of his position is his analogy between the discussion of warfare in Christian tradition and that of abortion. I am a Christian pacifist and I believe that Christians bearing arms on behalf of the State is grave sin; however, I am willing to recognize that other people believe otherwise and still want to follow Jesus--for them, their faith is such that they do not regard authorized violence as sinful.

Given the opportunity, I would attempt to convince my 'just war' co-religionists of the sinfulness of taking life for the state.

But I also accept that I am in need of serious forgiveness, too. In the same way, I would attempt to persuade my fellow Christians that abortion destroys the life of an image-bearing creature, while still recognizing that others really do have their own integrity before God. God is always right when making a determination--but I most decisively am not. In short, I do not think, on balance, that Ellison makes a strong enough argument that supporting the actual choice to have an abortion is an instance of "just love.
