Covenant and Calling
Towards A Theology Of Same-Sex Relationships
by Robert Song
This is an intelligent, articulate and well considered addition to the discussion of Same-Sex relationships and marriage. It pulls together the discussions and works of others to try to present a unified point for a covenant theology of relationships that would include Same-Sex relationships.
This book is well written and the style is very easy to read, and it is not confrontational in tone. But then it is a book that does not take sides, but that rather elucidates the larger discussion in depth and considered details, opening a discussion for a theology that could, perhaps, encapsulate all covenant relationships regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
This book is a must read for those wanting more than just the usual arguments, for those wanting to get to the root of the theology that is being discussed, and that just want to have a better understanding of the discussion at that level.
