The Erotic Word: Sexuality, Spirituality, and the Bible

Humans, the Bible tells us, both male and female, were created in God’s image, and eros–a fundamental longing for connection that finds abstract good in the pleasure we derive from the stimulation of the senses–is a central component of that image. The Bible, particularly the Hebrew Bible, affirms erotic passion, both eros between humans and eros between God and humans.

“An excellent book on an important topic-a remarkable combination of readability and scholarship, sexuality and spirituality.”–Marcus J. Borg
