"Biblical Sexuality & the Battle for Science" challenges the alleged scientific undergirding of the sex-revolution.

Chapter One spells out the chasm of difference between the Biblical and secular/pagan worldviews which leads to exactly contrary view of human sexuality. The Biblical view is based on morally responsible relationship, the secular/pagan on feeling. The chapter then discusses the changes in Western culture shifting away from authority and truth towards pluralism and relativism.

Chapter Two discusses the false nature of the sexuality dialogue process promoted by most denominations, and the alleged difference between the "pastoral" and "juridical" modes of debate, exploring more deeply the worldview issues. Secularized science is the problem for Christians, not science itself. The Biblical view of sexuality has far more honest science to recommend it than does the secular/pagan view. Only the Biblical view can offer a reasonable, objective, and workable definition of 'masculine' and 'feminine'. The Biblical view has a workable understanding of inclusiveness and truth-seeking which the secular/pagan world cannot sustain.

Chapter Three describes the spiritual battle for honest science, and investigates a primary tap-root of poison being sluiced into the scientific arena, the fraudulent and criminal work of Alfred Kinsey.

"Biblical Sexuality & the Battle for Science" uses the situation in the Episcopal Church as an illustration of the sexuality debacle rampant in Western society.
