This volume brings together two areas of health that are among the foci of current development efforts, as articulated by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), namely sexual and reproductive health (MDG 5: improve maternal health, target 2: achieve, by 2015, universal access to reproductive health); and Gender (MDG 3: promote gender equality and empower women). Few, if any, published books have dealt in a comprehensive way with public health aspects of these two strongly interrelated areas of health. Most published volumes devoted to sexual and reproductive health have a strong clinical focus, whereas books on gender tend to concentrate primarily on the socio-cultural and anthropological aspects of the subject.

* Provides a science-based approach to identifying appropriate response plans, adaptations, and mitigation steps for related behaviors
*Explores the financial and societal impact of behavioral choices
*Includes new preface specifically for this audience

The work employs the tools of biblical exegesis to consider a topic which has divided religions, caused emotional tension and resulted in harm. This work asks readers to step aside from the political and emotional divisiveness for a moment to become students of the bible. It is a work both about homosexuality and about how biblical texts can be examined by thinking people. In the bible there are six verses by two men, Moses and Paul, which might have some bearing on homosexuality. Always in biblical study, the key questions are: To whom was this passage addressed and to whom does it apply? Especially recommended for: A study guide for congregations preparing to become Open and Affirming A gift for a friend or family member who feels rejected by his or her church Any person questioning his or her sexuality All thinking people of faith who wish to examine the topic at a deeper level
