Some were, in the past decade, quite unthinkable, such as the rights of homosexuals within churches, others have evolved, such as apostasy and proselytism. It is clear that to tackle every single current and modern issue religiously related it would have required much more than a single volume, therefore we have tried to collect a sample of writings that could give the reader an informed idea of the new issues debated within this field. Most issues will be explained in two different, and sometimes opposing views, so as to give the reader both sides of the debate". -- INTRODUCTION."@en ;
