“What’s up with all the weird sexual behavior in the Old Testament?”
…then you should check out the book trailer for my new book, Prostitutes and Polygamists: A Look at Love, Old Testament Style (Zondervan). The book came out Sept, 2015.
If you know anyone interested in the topic of sex in the Bible, feel free to share the video. Here’s the link directly to the video on YouTube.
Here are links to other articles I wrote on related themes:
“How to Deal with the Old Testament’s Regressive Sexual Standards” an interview with Jonathan Merritt.
“David was a Rapist, Abraham a Sex-Trafficker“ (Christianity Today), which was one of CT’s most popular posts of 2015.
“5 Unexpected Lessons from a Story I Hate“ (On Faith; on the rape of the Levite’s concubine; Judg. 19).
“We’re all Sodomites: Love, Mercy, & the LGBTQ Conversation” (Missio Alliance)
In the video, I’m walking through the top floor of derelict building in downtown Grand Rapids that used to have a dance hall below. These upper rooms were smaller, hotel-type rooms, perhaps rented on a hourly basis.
More announcements coming soon.
