Sexegesis: An Evangelical Response to Five Uneasy Pieces on Homosexuality is written by a collaboration of Australian biblical teachers and experienced pastors addressing the vexed issue of homosexuality. ‘Sexegesis’, or sexual interpretation, shows that the traditional reading of Scripture, as against homosexual practice but for homosexual people, still makes best sense of the Bible text.

This is contrary to the more liberal revisionist reading of Scripture in Five Uneasy Pieces.
