Description: When moral theologian Kevin Kelly was invited by CAFOD (the Catholic Fund for Overseas Development) to accompany its AIDS co-ordinator on a visit to AIDS projects in Uganda, he had no conception of the transformation the experience would bring about in his own thinking about sexual ethics and about sexuality generally. AIDS, he found, thrives on the deep-seated sexual and economic inequality of women. Poverty and marginalization create windows of opportunity for the transmission of the virus. They are no longer matters to be thought about in terms of justice or compassion, they are questions of survival, not just for individuals but for whole communities. But this is not primarily a book about AIDS. It is a major work in which the author brings together the whole of his thinking and experience as a teacher, moral theologian and parish priest, and challenges the thinking of the churches - and in particular of the Roman Catholic Church - on sex and sexuality as moral issues for our time.
