Editors David W. Machacek and Melissa M. Wilcox have brought together top scholars in the field of religious studies to ask and answer these critical questions. Carefully researched, elegantly written, and respectfully presented, Sexuality and the Worlds Religions explores the intersection of the spiritual and the carnal in Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Daoism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and African and Native American spiritual traditions.A separate section explores critical religious and sexual topics in American society, including the role of spirituality in gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender communities- the role of sex in the modern witchcraft community- and the ever thorny problem of religion and sexual liberty. Reconciling sexuality and spirituality in every human soul is one of religions most important tasks. Students and other readers will find this timely and comprehensive volume of interest in exploring these issues.
