A comprehensive examination of sexual ethics across a wide range of congregational settings
Sexual health is an essential part of maintaining professional relationships in ministry. Focusing on implications for the practice of ministry, this book engages all dimensions of theological education and academic disciplines.
Addressing major issues such as power, pornography, and social media, respected scholars assess common ministry situations and offer practical guidelines. Topics include 'Sexing the Ministry' (Stanley Hauerwas), 'Ministry with Adolescents' (Robert Dykstra), 'When Leaders Fall' (Adam Hamilton), and more.
Each chapter includes an analysis of common ministry situations, discussion questions, practical guidelines, and resources for further study. Professional Sexual Ethics is ideal for use in courses on professional ethics for ministry, advanced leadership training, and continuing education for clergy.
