Why Would a Guy Want to Marry a Guy?
James Davidson's long review of Alan Bray’s The Friend has just appeared in the latest issue of the London Review of Books. Some readers may remember that this book was published posthumously way back in September 2003 but that's the LRB for you.
Even if you don’t find the question of same-sex unions in Christian history interesting, you may be surprised how fascinating you find Davidson’s account of Bray’s scholarship. And if you’re aware of the work of John Boswell but rather skeptical of some of his conclusions, you may decide that Bray’s approach is more persuasive than Boswell’s.
