Sexual health is an essential part of maintaining professional relationships in ministry. Focusing on implications for the practice of ministry, this book engages all dimensions of theological education and academic disciplines. Each chapter includes an analysis of common ministry situations, discussion questions, practical guidelines, and resources for further study. The volume is ideal for use in courses on professional ethics for ministry, advanced leadership training, and continuing education for clergy. The book includes generous use of case studies throughout and addresses major issues such as power, pornography, and social media as they relate to sexual ethics in congregations.

"This comprehensive volume of tough questions and instructive insights is a 'must-have' for all serious teachers, students, and practitioners of Christian sexual ethics in the church. The authors not only attend to practical dilemmas that arise within everyday situations of ministerial leadership but also offer a holistic approach to sexuality as one aspect of the complex humanity of church leaders." Traci C. West Drew Theological School "Having gathered some of the finest scholars of our day, Jung and Stephens offer conversations rather than rules. Reading it, one has the sense of sitting in on a scholarly parlor gathering among the best, talking intimately about intimacy" Karen McClintock Southern Oregon University
