Academic journal article Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality. Sex and the single savior Review of Dale B. Dale Martin's newest book serves two functions that some scholars would have handled in separate volumes. For more than a decade, Martin has been writing essays on gender, sexuality, and biblical interpretation that have proven to be indispensable reference points for biblical scholars and theologians wrestling with such topics. Sex and the Single Savior gathers a number of those essays about half of which previously appeared in other places and makes them available in a single volume. Martin's reader will find here incisive discussions of New Testament, early Christian, early Jewish and Greco-Roman texts that deal, or and this is important for Martin's approach are sometimes read as dealing, with a wide range of topics including gender roles and ideologies; desire and asceticism; kinship, marriage and divorce; and homoeroticism. However, Martin's book also includes several chapters that focus on methodological and theological matters, such as the roles of rhetoric, culture, and experience in interpretation; the status of historical criticism as modernity's privileged strategy for reading the Bible; and the nature and function of "Scripture" in communities of faith, ancient and modern. At first glance, these hermeneutical emphases might seem out of place in a volume devoted to "gender and sexuality in biblical interpretation" to quote the book's subtitle.

We need to think about Scripture more theologically and with fresh imaginations.

Far from urging the irrelevance of the Bible, I am advocating a more robust use of the Bible and a more sophisticated and adequate theology of Scripture. Avoiding preconceptions about ancient sexuality, he explores the ethics of desire and marriage and pays careful attention to the original meanings of words, especially those used as evidence of Paul's opposition to homosexuality.

For example, after a remarkably faithful reading of the scriptural texts, Martin concludes that our contemporary obsession with marriageand the whole search for the "right" sexual relationshipsis antithetical to the message of the gospel.

In all of these essays, however, Martin argues for engaging Scripture in a way that goes beyond the standard historical-critical questions and the assumptions of textual agency in order to find a faith that has no foundations other than Jesus Christ. Dale B.

baranulkin In the second sermon we discussed what happens when sex is taken out of this context, when we make it a self-imaging idol that we worship. When that happens, all of our sexual orientations become disoriented and need redeeming. In the third sermon we looked at marriage as the proper context for which God made sex, as a sign pointing toward our ultimate intimacy with God.
