Customer Questions & Answers for
Baker Academic Sex and the iWorld: Rethinking Relationship Beyond an Age of Individualism

Politics professor and pastor Dale Kuehne examines current issues pertaining to sexuality and society following the sexual revolution and asks: What kind of world are we creating? And is it the world we want to live in? With no finger-pointing and a cordial openness to responses from all points of view, Kuehne contrasts the "tWorld," in which traditional morality reigned, with the post-Enlightenment "iWorld," in which the perceived immediate needs of the individual are paramount. Both, he finds, fall short of the "rWorld," in which the larger web of healthy and nourishing social relationships provide the context for personal sexuality.

Kuehne surveys what the natural and social sciences conclude about gender and human sexuality. He goes on to explain how postmodernity impacts social policy and such issues as sexual orientation, redefinition of the family, and more. Kuehne then retells the Christian story through the lens of a relational theology, highlighting how it affects marriage, civil unions, divorce, adoption, and sex education. In the end, he argues, the journey toward satisfying our craving for fulfillment requires that we pay attention to healthy relational intimacy.

Sex and the iWorld will be an essential tool for courses on political science, social policy, and Christianity and culture. Most important, the book will help academics, students, church leaders, and laity develop a holistic strategy for engaging wider society about sexual ethics and public policy.
