Discerning the Word
Can the church accept homosexual relationships? Can the church ordain homosexual people? Did Lambeth 1998 amend a traditional Anglican understanding of the Bible? In this compelling and finely honed discussion, Paul Gibson focuses on the 1998 Lambeth Conference resolution on scripture and sexuality and examines the way cultural norms influence our understanding of biblical authority. He issues a challenge to the church and proposes a way forward that honours scripture, tradition, and our evolving culture.
