From the earliest recorded times, organized religious groups have tried to require all adherents to adopt the same creeds and codes of behavior. Those who have had Holy Writings have used those writings as a hammer to help compel adherence to orthodoxy. None have been more rigorous in demanding such compliance than the Christian church. This book offers a perspective on Christian Holy Writings, known as the Bible, that can help the faithful to understand love, intimacy, and marriage as they actually occur in that book. It aims to free one of the cultural distortions of scripture that deny authentic expression of our most intimate relationships.
