LIVING WITH SEX: The Students' Dilemma

Out of his experience as chaplain at Kenyon College, the author comes to the conviction that students are at least as responsible in sexual matters as any group in our society. They are satisfied neither with the traditional religious approach to sex nor with the promiscuity of some who have rebelled against that approach. There remains the dilemma, however, of an appropriate mode of conduct and with this problem the book is concerned. The student cannot easily discard the teachings of church, family, and college; and he cannot escape the further complications imposed by the economic structures of our society. ""The best he can do is to understand the facts, gain some perspective on the alternatives . . . and try to act with integrity."" The book draws widely upon the resources of theology, psychology, and other disciplines related to its basic problem. If it gives no clear, simple answers for the student's guidance, this is deliberate. However, it offers one of the best overall treatments of the problem now available for young people.
