Would a loving God really forbid divorce---even in extreme circumstances? Would he refuse a homosexual Christian who wanted to be ordained? Jon M. Walton, a Presbyterian minister, isn't so sure. In Imperfect Peace: Teaching Sermons on Troubling Texts, he exhorts Christians to think twice about biblical texts that seem to deny the "core proclamation" that God is a God of goodness, justice, and love.
-Publisher


Imperfect Peace is a collection of nine sermons--with a preface--on major controversial topics that trouble Christian pulpits in our era: divorce, homosexuality, God's wrath, dishonesty, and other issues.


CONTENTS 1. "Whoever Divorces" (Matthew 5:31­32; 19:3­9)  2. "Women Should Be Silent in the Churches" (1 Corinthians 14:26­40; 1 Timothy 2:8­15)  3. "Uneasy Peace" (Genesis 31:44­55)  4. "To Lie With a Male as With a Woman" (Leviticus 18:19­30; Acts 8:26­40)  5. "The Revenge of Dinah's Honor" (Genesis 34; Matthew 5:38­48)  6. "No One Comes to the Father Except Through Me" (John 14:1­7)  7. "The Flood" (Genesis 6--8; Isaiah 41:4b­10)  8. "Can't I Do Anything Right?" (Isaiah 64:1­9)  9. "Blessed Are the Clever?" (Luke 16:1­9) These nine sermons deal respectively with Divorce, Exclusion in the Church, The Problem of Mistrust, Homosexuality, Vengeance and Forgiveness, Universalism, God's Wrath, The Pervasiveness of Sin, and Dishonesty.
