Jacob's wound :

Continuum,. New York :. ©2005.

The very suggestion that there may be homoeroticism in Hebrew narrative may seem odd given the supposition that the religion and culture of ancient Israel resolutely opposed same sex erotic relationships. The apparent prohibition of homosexuality in Leviticus and the story of Sodom from Genesis have been made to speak for the whole Hebrew Bible. The oddity of this situation has not been lost on some interpreters who have recognized that the story of Sodom tells us no more about attitudes toward what we call homosexuality than the story of the rape of Dina tells us about attitudes toward hetero.

Loyalty to God :
ISBN: 0687228212. OCLC Number:

Abingdon Press,. Nashville :. ©1992.

"Loyalty to God offers a theological interpretation of and reflection on the Apostles' Creed by asserting that it is an oath of loyalty to the God who adopts, liberates, and empowers us. Those who repeat the Creed are not so much summarizing their theological opinions as vowing to renounce their allegiance to all other principalities and powers in favor of the One who created -- and who has come to transform -- heaven and earth.
