Short, sweet, and to the point, Coogan's God and Sex clips right along as it examines what the Bible really says about messy topics like marriage, divorce, adultery, abortion, homosexuality, rape, prostitution and a bevy of other things guaranteed to start arguments over the dinner table. Coogan keeps his personal agenda largely confined to the introduction and conclusion, leaving the majority of his book to the exploration of the text and its historical context. Wonderful for anyone, but particularly useful if you're interested in picking a fight with fans of Prop 8.

Coogan also kindly provided me with my new favorite euphemism for sex: apparently in the Bible "laughing" is a code-word for a whole different kind of happy, something I find truly marvelous.
