Sex, Moral Teaching, & the Unity of the Church A Study of the Episcopal ChurchOctober 1, 2014 By Collegeville Institute Timothy F. Sedgwick Morehouse Publishing, 2014 Visit this title on the publisher’s website » Respected Episcopal ethicist Timothy F. Sedgwick provides an alternative viewpoint on the homosexuality debate, on the proposed Anglican Covenant, and on mission and ministry. He deals insightfully with what he thinks is a mistaken assumption in the Church and advances a cogent argument that the church needs to be clear in forming its moral teaching―whether liberal or conservative. The right question, Sedgwick maintains, is how do we teach morals and order our life accordingly? This book evolved from his work over the last decade addressing same-sex issues in the national church. Chapters include: – Homosexuality, Teaching, and Governance in the Episcopal Church – The Anglican Covenant: What are Bishops for? – Anglican-Roman Catholic Dialogue: The Unity We Seek – Moral Teaching, Formation, and the Mission of the Church A timely and lucid treatment of the single most controversial topic in the Episcopal Church. Timothy was a Resident Scholar at the Collegeville Institute, Spring 2014. Sex, Moral Teaching, & the Unity of the Church was featured in Bearings Online’s inaugural Book Notes, September 2015.
