Some of the roots of the characteristic negative attitude to homosexuality can be found in Peter Damian’s appeal to Pope Leo IX. Though written 900 years ago by an Italian monk in a remote corner of Italy, The Book of Gomorrah is relevant to contemporary discussion of homosexuality. The Book of Gomorrah asks the Pope to take steps to halt the spread of homosexual practices among the clergy. The first part outlines the various forms of homosexual practice, the specific abuses, and the inadequacy of traditional penitential penances, and demands that offenders be removed form their ecclesiastical positions. The second part is an impassioned plea to the offenders to repent of their ways, accept due penance, and cease from homosexual activity. Payer’s is the first translation of the full tract into any language from the original Latin. In his introduction to the tract Payer places The Book of Gomorrah in its context as the first major systematic treatise in the medieval West against various homosexual acts, provides a critique of Peter Damian’s arguments, and outlines his life. The annotated translation is followed by a translation of the letter of Pope Leo IX in reply to Damian’s Treatise, an extensive bibliography, and indexes. The book will be of interest to students of medieval history and religion, to ethicists and students of social mores, and to persons generally concerned with the historical roots of present-day attitudes to homosexuality.

History and Motif in Biblical Narrative

According to Fields, biblical narrative is didactic socio-religious commentary on human experience, reflected in 'history', and that such 'history' is a way of describing the conceptual universe of the ancient authors. Biblical narrative is strikingly free of abstract formulations but encapsulates abstract reflections, within recurring literary motifs, and by the reporting of 'historical information'. This perception of biblical narrative is strikingly illustrated by an analysis of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19). The motifs of the Sodom tradition are compared with those in the stories about the concubine in Gibeah (Judges 19) and about the destruction of Jericho (Joshua 2).

The story of the destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah, and Jericho--three cities situated along a major fault line extending 1,100 kilometers from the Red Sea to Turkey--is the oldest such description in human history. In this book, noted geologists K.O. Emery and David Neev have revisited that story to shed light on what happened there some 4,350 years ago. With all the benefits of modern geological and forensic science techniques at their disposal, the authors explore an area where earthquakes, volcanic activity, variations in the Dead Sea's level, and oscillations between arid and wet climates have affected life there for over 10,000 years. In reviewing the geology, biblical paleogeography, and limnology of the region, the authors have produced fascinating insights into the tectonic and climatic changes that have occurred in the region over the last 6,000 years and how those changes have affected cultural life in the Middle East. The Destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah, and Jericho is the first book to combine modern science and biblical archaeology to produce an authoritative account of the of these three great cities. It will fascinate students and researchers in geology, geophysics, and archaeology alike.

What if Sodom and Gomorrah, those synonyms for debauchery, were in fact perfect societies? What if the avenging angels were genocidal terrorists, and the Òone righteous manÓ who escaped the annihilation was a murderous fanatic and the rapist of his own daughters? Justice is a long time coming, but finally the serene waters of the Red Sea give up the secret of a millennia-old lie. While surrendering to biblical wantonness with a film actress, sculptor Joanna Boleyn, discovers that righteousness can conceal its own depravity, that art tells more truth than scripture, and that challenging authority can be mortally dangerous.

In Skipping Towards Gomorrah, Dan Savage eviscerates the right-wing conservatives as he commits each of the Seven Deadly Sins himself (or tries to) and finds those everyday Americans who take particular delight in their sinful pursuits. Among them: Greed: Gamblers reveal secrets behind outrageous fortune. Lust: "We're swingers!"-you won't believe who's doing it. Anger: Texans shoot off some rounds and then listen to Dan fire off on his own about guns, gun control, and the Second Amendment. Combine a unique history of the Seven Deadly Sins, a new interpretation of the biblical stories of Sodom and Gomorrah, and enough Bill Bennett, Robert Bork, Pat Buchanan, Dr. Laura, and Bill O'Reilly bashing to more than make up for their incessant carping, and you've got the most provocative book of the fall.

The story in the New Gomorrah is about a Midwestern city so steeped in crime and corruption, that a new minister, Reverend Dr. David Chandler, at a prestigious church on Park Avenue, feels he must do something about it. In a challenging sermon, he compares it to Gomorrah, the ancient city of biblical times destroyed by fire because of its evil ways. His compelling words are heard by Paul Chedder, a cynical, now burned-out, but once highly regarded investigative reporter for The Daily Chronicle, the citys only daily newspaper. Dr. Chandler is popular among the young people in the church, and has learned about the drug trafficking on the local college campus. He is furious to hear about the gambling and prostitution rampant in the city, the running of crap games at the American Legion Hall, and berates local authorities for doing nothing about the bookie operation next to the Civic Center. He decides to bring such matters to the attention of his congregation in his sermon. The city s crime problems expand with the assassination of the drug kingpin, and Pauls ongoing private investigations into a nursing home swindle, the possibility of corruption in City Hall, the death of two young reporters working with him, and his own near death at the hands of the assassin. While Paul is recuperating, the trusted members of the citizens committee decide to share Pauls suspicions of the Mayors involvement with the trusted District Attorney, working together to get crime off of the streets.

This book reexamines the Sodom and Gomorrah narrative in Genesis 18–19, an ethically charged text that has significantly influenced views about homosexuality, stereotyping the other, the rewards and risks of hospitality, and the justice owed to outsiders. Its twelve essays, reflecting their authors’ considerable geographical, religious, methodological, and academic diversity, explore this troubling text through the lens of universalism and particularism. Biblical Sodom is read as the site of multiple borders—fluid, porous, and bi-directional—between similar and different, men and angels, men and women, fathers and daughters, insiders and outsiders, hosts and guests, residents and aliens, chosen and nonchosen, and people and God. Readers of these exegetically and theologically attentive essays published in memory of Ron Pirson will experience a rare sense of an ancient text being read in and for the modern world. The contributors are Calum Carmichael, Diana Lipton, William John Lyons, Nathan MacDonald, Amira Meir, Yitzhak (Itzik) Peleg, T. A. Perry, Ron Pirson, Jonathan D. Safren, Megan Warner, Harlan J. Wechsler, and Ellen J. van Wolde.

Otis is a gay man who discovers he has a son from a one night affair. Now his son, Antonio, a young man in his twenties, has come to live with him. Everything is fine until Otis realizes that Antonio is living a secret life hustling his body. It's a trade Otis is well aware of because he once lived that same life. Antonio, Otis's son, feels he has been blessed with great sexual prowess. He doesn't consider himself gay or bi-sexual, but he has used his 'gift' to dominate both men and women to get what he wants. But there is one thing he can't get from sex, and that is peace of mind from the darkness that haunts him, the same darkness that haunted, and later destroyed his mother. Now Otis must fight to save Antonio from a life in the streets and from the darkness that haunts him. However, Otis has his own demons, and he finds that he must not only save his son's life, but his own life as well. Leaving Gomorrah is the third and final book in the This Place of Men Trilogy.

A white southern airport loader tries to do a favour for a black northern child. The ordinary stuff of fiction - but with a difference!
