Women, Sex, and the Church

Women, Sex, and the Church

Edited by: Erika Bachiochi
SKU/EAN: 83204
ISBN: 9780819883209
Publisher: Pauline Books & Media
Format: Paperback / softback

In this volume, contributors from a variety of backgrounds and professions challenge the common misconception that Catholic teachings are anti-women and anti-sex. They promote that, contrary to popular belief, it is precisely the Church's controversial teachings on abortion, sex, marriage, contraception, and reproductive technologies that illuminate the Church’s love of women and reverence for sex. Relying on biological, sociological, and medical evidence, along with personal anecdotes and experiences, these women defend Church teaching—all from a pro-woman perspective.
