Most widely held works by M. D Kirby
Five uneasy pieces essays on scripture and sexuality by Michael Kirby ( )
3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 'uneasy pieces' of this book are well-written, challenging and stimulating. They come from the pens of Australian biblical scholars within the Anglican communion, who are skilled in both exegesis and hermeneutical theory. Each essay addresses the question of homosexuality in the Bible, looking at passages in the Old Testament and the New Testament which are often used as a basis for rejecting homosexuality in Christian ethics. Each essay argues, on the contrary, that there is no biblical warrant for condemning either a homosexual orientation or a faithful and committed homosexual relationship. The book, as a whole, makes it crystal clear that both sides of the debate take seriously the Bible as the inspired word of God, and both are seeking to discern the Scriptures in order to hear God's voice speaking to us today
