about

Historically, the Bible has been used to drive a wedge between the spirit and the body. In this provocative book, David Carr argues that the Bible affirms erotic passion. Sexuality and spirituality, he contends, are intricately interwoven; the journey toward God and the life-long engagementwith our own sexual embodiment are inseparable.
David Carr is Professor of Old Testament/Hebrew Bible at Union Theological Seminary.
