Almost everyone is directly affected by questions involving sex and sexual ethics - yet few are aware of the background to current views on topics such as sex before and after marriage, sex as procreation and fulfilment, homosexuality, sexual abuse, rape and contraception. This new edition offers added and up-to-date material discussion burning current issues in a thoughtful, reflective and challenging way.

Peter Vardy was Vice-Principal of Heythrop College, University of London, from 1999-2011. He lectures extensively to teachers and students around the world and his bestselling books are a fixture on reading lists, known for being accessible and entertaining without oversimplifying complex material.

'The Puzzle of Sex brings together in a deft, fascinating and easily accessible manner understandings of human sexuality based on current biblical scholarship, the insights and belief of different traditions, psychology and ethical discussion and argument. Traditional moral arguments are critically evaluated and current issues are clarified in a way that helps the reader come to a more mature assessment of their own views on this critical area of human experience.' -- Brendan Callaghan SJ, Heythrop College, University of London
