Volume 37, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0256-9507

Within Christianity, sexuality usually features more as a problem than as a theme of celebration, which is to the detriment of Christians and the perception of Christianity from outside the circle of its constituents.

In conclusion, affirming sexual fulfilment as a missionary approach for Christianity is explored.
