This chapter briefly details historically what the Christian tradition has thought about sex, culled from interpretations of the Hebrew Old Testament and the New Testament and from more recent religious writings and teachings. It then moves from ancient wisdom to the most contemporary of thinkers — 21st-century adolescents themselves. It sets the stage for a number of the book's key themes by offering perspectives from six teenagers, each of whom participates (to varying degrees) in organized religion.

Keywords:   sex, biblical sexuality, Bible, Christian, Christianity, adolescents
