Much has already been written on AIDS, moving accounts by those affected by it, case studies and books on pastoral care. Comparatively little, however, has been written about the implications of AIDS for theology, and these are important and far-reaching.

How does AIDS affect our picture of God? How are the teachings of the Bible to be used authoritatively in the face of AIDS? Is the church hampered in its reactions to AIDS because down the ages it has failed to develop a viable sexual ethic? How do the theological marks of the church, its holiness and catholicity, relate to the attitudes of its members to those with AIDS?

All these questions, and many others, are discussed with compassion and insight in this new study.
