Books interpreting biblical passages on human sexuality:
The Bible presents a serious problem. There is a general consensus on what it says in its passages dealing with sex, but there is no agreement on what it means. There is not even agreement on the technique that should be used to extract the meaning from the text. As a result, theologians have reached very different interpretations of passages that touch on human sexuality. The problem is seen in other topics as well.
