The Bible and Sexual Violence Against Men

  • By Chris Greenough
$79.99
Product Description

At least 1 in 6 men have experienced some form of sexual violence. The Bible and Sexual Violence Against Men argues that the shame and stigma around male sexual abuse are interwoven with contemporary social and cultural concepts of masculinity, and are also found in the ancient world and biblical texts themselves.

This book is interdisciplinary and has three main areas of exploration:

  • #MenToo? Exploring the myths around sexual violence against men
  • Sexual violence against men in the Hebrew Bible
  • Reading Jesus' enforced nudity at the crucifixion as sexual violence.

Given the enduring importance of the Bible in contemporary society, this book explores the biblical texts that depict sexual violence against men. It examines critical approaches from theology, biblical, and religious studies perspectives, while also exploring insights from the fields of sociology, psychology, and criminology as well as referring to legal cases and legislation, charity work, and media-focussed articles. In seeking to serve a number of interested readers, including those who are not familiar with the Bible, short summaries of the biblical texts under discussion are given in each case.
