Abstract: Since the 1970s, influenced by burgeioning research on homosexuality in the natural and social sciences, a deep change in the theological understanding of homosexuality have begun to emerge within the Christian community. While Christianity as a whole is experiencing this change, it is not happening uniformly among Christian traditions and denominations, and there exists a variety of Christian theologies of homosexuality. This essay provides a typological examination of these different understandings of homosexuality. Rather than offering a normative Christian understanding of homosexuality, this descriptive study focuses on those theological and exegetic rationales from which different attitudes toward homosexuality emerge within Christianity.
