The Sexual Revolution: History Ideology Power

by Bp. Peter Elliot

Softcover book

Proclaim the message... be persistent, whether the time is favorable or unfavorable. 2 Timothy 4:2

The sexual revolution at the heart of this book is part of wider and deeper developments happening in our world. It is a revolution that asserts the utter freedom of the individual to act and behave as if the vital traditions of religion and philosophy have no claim on how we live, especially in the area of sexuality that is so much part of our personalities and identities.

The author, a bishop in Melbourne, traces the development of these ideas from the early days of the Enlightenment to our own times, in a context of the apparent failure of governments and even churches to defend principles of sexual behavior and attitudes, honored by timeless church teaching and social expectations.

In such times, he acknowledges that Catholic parents and teachers need sound guidance about sexual ethics. He records the constant teaching of Popes and Councils and reminds us of their focus on the integration of sexual morality within wider, deeper contexts of human nature, marriage stability and family life.

Above all, he brings a pastoral sensitivity to the task of helping contemporary Catholics understand their tradition, and offers sound strategies to affirm Catholic teaching about sexuality.

He well understands that forces opposing such an approach are formidable but knows too that the message must be proclaims, however unfavorable. He encourages parents, families and teachers to recover a different, richer understanding of sexuality for our time.

Shipping Information: Shipping times provided on this website or elsewhere are the estimated transit time of the post office and do not include our processing time. Depending on stock status and our volume of orders, delivery can vary from a few days to several weeks. If you need your package by a certain date, please contact us and we will do our best to expedite the order.

Mail Classes: Priority Mail is the name given to a mail class from USPS, and does not refer to a faster processing time by us (if you need an item urgently, please contact us and we will do our best to expedite the order). Priority Mail is the least expensive mail class available for domestic packages over one pound and international packages over four pounds. For smaller packages, First Class mail may be less expensive. Shipping times for both are comparable. Media Mail is only available for domestic orders consisting entirely of DVDs, CDs or books. It is generally less expensive than either First Class or Priority Mail, but shipping times are slower (anything from a couple of days to a week extra).

You are also responsible for ensuring any items ordered are legal to import to your jurisdiction. Church Militant is not responsible for items seized at customs or taxes due.
