Telling Truths in Church by Mark D. Jordan
Book DescriptionIs the reform we have seen in the wake of the pedophilia scandals in the Catholic Church meaningful? Have our conversations about the causes of these scandals delved as deeply as they need to? For those questioning the relations between hierarchical power, secrecy, and sexuality in institutional religion, Mark D. Jordan's eloquent meditations on what truths about sexuality need to be told in church-and the difficulty of telling any truths-will be a balm and a revelation.

Books By Author Mark D. Jordan
Blessing Same-sex Unions, Paperback (September 2013)
Why are so many churches vehemently opposed to blessing same-sex unions? This title shows how carefully selected ideals of Christian marriage have come to dominate recent debates over same-sex unions. It is suitable for both sides of the ongoing American debate over gay marriage.
Recruiting Young Love, Hardback (April 2011)
Explores American church debate about homosexuality to show that even as the main lesson - homosexuality is bad, teens are vulnerable - has remained constant, the arguments and assumptions have changed remarkably.
Authorizing Marriage?, Hardback (January 2006)
Explores the issue of same-sex marriage through a range of biblical, historical, liturgical, and theological evidence. From David's love for Jonathan through the singleness of Jesus and Paul to the all-male heaven of John's Apocalypse, this title addresses pertinent passages in the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament.
Silence of Sodom, Paperback (June 2002)» View all books by Mark D. Jordan
This analysis of the relationship between male homosexuality and Catholicism examines the Church's language about sexual morality and the rhetorical devices used to actively produce silence about the topic. The author draws analogies between clerical institutions and gay culture.
