    "Excellent book, terrible reader"

    Thatcher's thought is concise, well-organized, thorough, and engaging. Balancing innovation and tradition, this book is one of the finest treatments of the subject that I've ever encountered. Worth reading/listening for the armchair theologian or college/seminary student.

    His angle is that of a progressive/liberal Christian theologian who sees the need for a revision of our theological framework for sexual ethics. Thatcher addresses marriage equality, women's ordination, and sex before marriage. He does not go so far as to endorse open relationships or polyamory. In spite of his revisionist perspective, he still makes the case for a biblically and theologically informed sexual ethic that centers on marriage and fidelity.

    This book will probably appeal to moderate and/or liberal Christians who feel caught somewhere between fundamentalist obsession with "pelvic issues" and the pervasive "anything goes" attitude of secular society.

    On the down-side, Garver's reading leaves much to be desired. The editing is terrible. She repeatedly stumbles over basic words:
    "Pro-ji-gal"
    "Egali-tee-rian"
    And many more...

    The quality of the reader is about the same as I would expect from myself if I recorded a chapter on my voice-recorder at home. If you can get past her bad reading, the material makes this book worth a listen.
